Degradation behavior of carbon nanotubes/phenol-furfuryl alcohol multifunctional composites with aerospace application
Lightweight and highly conductive composite associated with good impact and tribological properties could be used in the aerospace industry to replace metal for an aircraft skin and still provide effective shielding against ...
Tannin-phenolic resins: Synthesis, characterization, and application as matrix in biobased composites reinforced with sisal fibers
(ELSEVIER SCI LTDOXFORD, 2013-08-02)
A tannin-phenolic resin (40 wt% of tannin, characterized by H-1 nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and C-13 NMR, Fourier transform infrared, thermogravimetry, differential scanning calorimetry) was used to prepare composites ...
Curing kinetics of epoxy / alkyl phosphonium modified nanoclay composites for high performance applications
(Elsevier Science, 2015-04-09)
Alkyl phosphonium salts are novel and unexplored modifiers for polymer based composites which can improve the clays compatibility and dispersion in the polymer matrix. These salts can enhance the thermal stability of the ...
Superparamagnetic nano-biocomposites for application as dielectric resonator antennas
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-01-01)
There is a growing global interest for the development of green technologies that allow the use of products with less damage to environment, as well as for maximum and sustainable use of natural resources. The main aim of ...
Relationships between the curing conditions and some mechanical properties of hybrid thermosetting materials
The relationship between the heat of polymerization (ΔH) and activation energy (Ea) parameters, obtained by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and the ratio of epoxy resin to hardener of the thermosetting materials ...
Vinyl ester resin modified with silicone-based additives: II. Flammability properties
(John Wiley & Sons IncHobokenEUA, 2006)
Thermoset matrix reinforced with sisal fibers: Effect of the cure cycle on the properties of the biobased composite
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009)
Thermoset phenolic composites reinforced with sisal fibers were prepared to optimize the cure step. In the present study, processing parameters such as pressure, temperature, and time interval were varied to control the ...
LYOCELL AND COTTON FIBERS AS REINFORCEMENTS FOR A THERMOSET POLYMER
(NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIV DEPT WOOD & PAPER SCIRALEIGH, 2012)
Cellulose fibers obtained from the textile industry (lyocell) were investigated as a potential reinforcement for thermoset phenolic matrices, to improve their mechanical properties. Textile cotton fibers were also considered. ...
Cardanol-based thermoset plastic reinforced by sponge gourd fibers (Luffa cylindrica)
A growing global trend for maximum use of natural resources through new processes and products has enhanced studies and exploration of renewable natural materials. In this study, cardanol, a component of the cashew nut ...
Resin–Sisal and Wood Flour Composites Made from Unsaturated Polyester Thermosets
Short fibers and wood flour were selected as fillers in the production of two types of unsaturated polyester composites (bisphenolic and isophthalic-based thermosets). Sisal fibers were subjected to washing in order to ...
