  1. 1. Flow, expansion and processing behaviours of gas-containing filled polyethylene

    Author : Nabil Khoshaba; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mechanical properties; flow rate; critical pressure; injection moulding; expansion kinetics; fillers; rheological properties; foaming; composite materials; partial pressure; capillary viscometry; Blowing agent;

    Abstract : The utilization of fillers in polymeric materials has exhibited a substantial growth during the last decades. Chalk (calcium carbonate) and glass fibres are two common examples of such fillers. These fillers/reinforcing elements are used in order to reduce the cost of material and change its physical (mechanical) properties. READ MORE

  2. 2. Foaming of Some Cellulose Derivatives - Initial Studies

    Author : Kristina Karlsson; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rheological characterisation; Foaming; hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC ; scale-up production; ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose EHEC ; hot-mould baking; cellulose derivatives; extrusion;

    Abstract : Fossil-based polymeric foams, based on polymers such as polystyrene and polyurethane, are important and widely employed materials due to their good mechanical properties relative their low density, the low price and the possibility for large-scale production. There are however a few disadvantages with these foamed products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Foaming of cellulose derivatives and hemicellulose-containing materials

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Kristina Karlsson; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; β-glucan; arabinoxylan; scale-up production; hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC ; ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose EHEC ; hot-mould foaming; extensional viscosity; extrusion; hemicellulose; rheological characterisation; Foaming; xylan; cellulose derivatives;

    Abstract : Fossil-based polymeric foams are important materials due to their good mechanical properties relative their low density, the low price and the possibility for large-scale production. They are widely used in cushioning, absorbing and insulation applications. There are however a few disadvantages with these foamed products. READ MORE

  4. 4. Insulation materials in district heating pipes : Environmental and thermal performance of polyethylene terephthalate and polyurethane foam

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Sara Mangs; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HFC-365mfc; insulation; District heating pipe; 3-pentafluorobutane; cyclopentane; 3; 1; mass transport; 1; 1; thermal performance; polyurethane foam; polyethylene terephthtalate foam;

    Abstract : District heating can contribute to increased energy efficiency in society. The environmental impact can be reduced by minimising the heat losses in the district heating pipes during distribution of the heat to the customers. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the production of polyethylene dielectrics and conductive polymer composite fibres

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Martin Strååt; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; polyethylene; carbon black; polypropylene; melt spinning; foaming; polystyrene; fibres; cables; carbon nanotubes; electrical properties;

    Abstract : Foamed cable insulations and conductive polymer composite fibres are two applications in polymer processing where the electrical properties of a material may be altered significantly during processing. Their common denominator is that the outcome depends to a large degree on the flow behaviour of the polymer melt, in particular the melt extensional properties. READ MORE
