The thermal and photo-oxidative stabilisation of high styrene–butadiene copolymer (SBC) with high styrene content (K-Resin) has been studied using a variety of analytical and spectroscopic methods including yellowness, luminescence and FT-IR spectroscopy coupled with hydroperoxide analysis in...
The long-term thermo-oxidative degradation of different metallocene polyethylenes (mPEs) was investigated in the solid state (oven ageing in air at 90 °C). The mPEs differed essentially according to their initial melt index, molar mass distribution, density and ash content. Two Phillips-type...
A novel hyperbranched polyphosphate ester (HPPE) was synthesized via the polycondensation of bisphenol-A as an A 2 monomer and phosphoryl trichloride as a B 3 monomer at 100 °C, without gelation. The initial molar ratio of A 2 to B 3 was set to be 1.5:1. The final product was precipitated from...
Three promising polymer material condition monitoring (CM) methods were applied to eight commercial chlorosulfonated polyethylene cable jacket materials aged under both elevated temperature and high-energy radiation conditions. The CM methods examined, cross-sectional modulus profiling, solvent...
Potential fire retardants, including copper hydroxy dodecyl sulfate (CHDS), organically-modified montmorillonite (Cloisite 15A), and resorcinol di-phosphate (RDP), were added to pure poly(vinyl ester) (PVE) individually or in combinations at low concentration formulations. Thermogravimetric...
A novel phosphorus–nitrogen containing intumescent flame retardant (P–N IFR) was prepared via the reaction of a caged bicyclic phosphorus (PEPA) compound and 4,4′-diamino diphenyl methane (DDM) in two steps. The product was added to poly(butylene terephthalate) (PBT) to obtain halogen-free...
Accelerated thermal and photo-aging of four homopolymers, low-density polyethylene (LDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) and high-impact polystyrene (HIPS), was performed and the impact of subsequent reprocessing conditions on their properties studied. Polymer samples...
A study on the thermal behavior and flammability properties of the heterophasic polypropylene–(ethylene–propylene) copolymer (PP–EP)/poly(ethylene vinyl acetate) (EVA)/montmorillonite nanocomposite is presented. Nanoclay nanocomposites were prepared using a twin screw extruder. Both the...
