Amphiphilic block copolymers are used in a variety of applications, for example, as stabilizers for emulsions and dispersions or as compatibilizers in polymer blends. Amphiphilic diblock copolymer composed of methoxypoly(ethylene glycol) and polystyrene (MPEG-b-PS) was synthesized using atom...
This article emphasizes the optimization of processing parameters required for the blending of polyether-based thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and poly dimethyl siloxane (PDMS) rubber. Taguchi methodology was adapted as a statistical tool in the design of experiment to optimize processing...
The cure characteristics and mechanical properties of gum and filled silicone rubber (MVQ), fluororubber (FKM), and MVQ-FKM blends with different compositions were investigated before and after aging. The rheometric study showed that optimum cure properties were obtained using the curing system...
Bitumen properties may be successfully modified if the polymeric modifiers have the ability to control the elastic and plastic properties within wide temperature ranges of −30/−40°C to +45/+60°C. The article presents a study on the ability of two thermoplastic elastomers, thermoplastic...
In situ nondestructive evaluation (NDE) during processing of high-temperature polymer-based hybrids offers great potential to gain close control of and achieve the desired level of pore size, with low overall development cost. During the polymer-curing cycle, close control over the evolution of...
In this work, the mechanical behavior of sintered waste material of ethylene-propylene-diene-monomer crumb rubber (EPDMCR) is analyzed, optimizing the temperature and compression pressure. The results obtained showed that an increase in temperature and compression pressure gives a significant...
Polymeric insulators have gained popularity since the last 30 years throughout the world. The main concern about them is variation in their performance with varying environments. Investigation of their performance by natural and artificial aging experiments is under the way by many researchers...
