The first in this series of papers explored the effect of the structural characteristics of 2,2,6,6‐tetramethylpiperidine‐based hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS) on the thermal and photostabilization of high‐density polyethylene. In the second part, the energies (stabilities) of the...
Rigid PVC/wood‐flour composite lumber containing either hardwood (maple) or a softwood (southern pine) wood flour at different levels of wood‐flour content was evaluated for susceptibility to fungal colonization and discoloration by using standard tests that mimicked exterior (ASTM G21) and...
Additives that act as flame retardants can contribute significantly to smoke generation because they decrease the efficiency of the fuel source and, as a result, create a sooty combustion. Work on a new phosphate ester material has shown interesting results and synergies that complement both...
This study focuses on the ability of U‐PVC to be processed a number of times. Three different types of U‐PVC were investigated: virgin lead‐stabilized material; virgin calcium/zinc‐stabilized material; and reground, 20‐year‐old, post‐consumer windows. Each material was extruded four times,...
In 1971, twenty circular aquaculture ponds were constructed for the W. K. Kellogg Biological Research Station in Hickory Corners, Michigan. The 30.5‐m‐diameter research ponds were lined using a 0.51‐mm‐thick fish‐grade PVC geomembrane. Over the years the ponds became congested with dense,...
