Study of thermal and mechanical properties of a biocomposite based on natural rubber and 45S5 Bioglass® particles
Biocomposites based on natural rubber (NR) reinforced with 45S5 Bioglass® (BG) particles were obtained by casting/evaporation method in which NR was dissolved in chloroform and mixed with BG particles. Structural, mechanical, ...
Preparation and characterization of stainless steel 316L/HA biocomposite
(ABM, ABC, ABPol, 2013-04-01)
The austenitic stainless steel 316L is the most used metallic biomaterials in orthopedics applications, especially in the manufacture of articulated prostheses and as structural elements in fracture fixation, since it has ...
Chitosan, sisal cellulose, and biocomposite chitosan/sisal cellulose films prepared from thiourea/NaOH aqueous solution
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2010)
Environmentally friendly biocomposites were successfully prepared by dissolving chitosan and cellulose in a NaOH/thiourea solvent with subsequent heating and film casting. Under the considered conditions, NaOH/thiourea led ...
Sisal-glass fiber hybrid biocomposite: Optimization of injection molding parameters using Taguchi method for reducing shrinkage
The current work presents an application of Taguchi method to optimize injection molding (IM) process parameters of sisal-glass fiber hybrid biocomposite. Six parameters that influence flow and cross-flow shrinkage such ...
Nano- and macroscale structural and mechanical properties of in situ synthesized bacterial cellulose/PEO-b-PPO-b-PEO biocomposites
(Amer Chemical Soc, 2015-02-25)
Highly transparent biocomposite based on bacterial cellulose (BC) mat modified with poly(ethylene oxide-b-propylene oxide-b-ethylene oxide) block copolymer (EPE) were fabricated in situ during biosynthesis of bacterial ...
Thermo-mechanical properties of acrylated epoxidized hemp oil based biocomposites
(Sage Publications Ltd, 2013-05-17)
In this study, novel acrylated epoxidized hemp oil bioresin was used in the manufacturing of jute fibre reinforced biocomposites. The 100% biocomposite laminates were characterised in terms of mechanical properties (tensile, ...
Study of optimization of the synthesis and properties of biocomposite films based on grafted chitosan
Acrylic acid (AcAc) and 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) were graft copolymerized onto the chito- san backbone using radical initiation under different experimental conditions. The grafted products were then characterized ...
Mechanical properties, morphology and thermal degradation of a biocomposite of polypropylene and curaua fibers: coupling agent effect
(Associação Brasileira de Polímeros, 2013)
Thermo-mechanical properties of epoxidized hemp oil-based bioresins and biocomposites
(Sage Publications Ltd, 2013-06-26)
Novel epoxidized hemp oil-based biocomposites containing jute fibre reinforcement were produced at the Centre of Excellence in Engineered Fibre Composites (CEEFC) owing to the need to develop new types of biobased materials. ...
