Nanoclay Modification and Compound Formulation for Foaming Linear Polypropylene

​ Introduction Linear polypropylene is not ideal for making foams for sealing purposes due to poor melt strength. The attempts to overcome this limitation by cross-linking a portion of the linear polymer or by adding a long chained branched polymer have resulted in unwanted side effects, such as a reduction in recyclability. Additionally, long...

Hybrid PVC/Wood-Flour Nanocomposites and Method of Manufacture

IntroductionThe Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) industry is moving towards using more petroleum-free components for WPC blends, while attempting to retain or improve performance of their products. Wood plastic composite products have strength and stiffness properties that are somewhere between plastic and wood, and do not offer mechanical performance similar...
