The effect of two aziridine-type bond promoters on adhesive and mechanical properties of a hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene-based elastomeric liner used in solid propellant rockets was investigated by varying the concentration to determine the optimum value. The performance of butyleneiminetrimesoylaziridine (BITA) was compared with that of tris[1-2-methylaziridinyl]phosphine oxide (MAPO) in the elastomeric liner of otherwise the same composition. The adhesive performance of the elastomer to the composite was determined by using metal-elastomer-composite tensile and peel tests. The adhesive performance of the elastomer to the metal was also determined, this time by using peel and shear tests. The mechanical characterization of the elastomer was done by tensile and hardness tests. A significant enhancement in the bonding performance of the elastomeric liner toward composite propellant and metal case was achieved by optimizing the concentration of bond promoter in the elastomeric composition. All the elastomer compositions with bond promoters BITA and MAPO loadings of 1.01 1.5, and 2.0 wt % were found to be sufficient for the rocket motor operations because the interfacial adhesive strength of these compositions is higher than the cohesive strength of the composite. Compositions with bond promoter quantities of 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, and 2.5 wt % have better strength values than the others. Liner compositions with the bond promoter BITA give better bonding performance between the composite-metal system and better mechanical properties when compared with the elastomers with the bond promoter MAPO. The best results are obtained in terms of bonding performance and adhesive properties by using the bond promoter BITA in optimized quantities of 1.0 and 1.5 wt % loadings in the elastomer compositions.

Effect of Gas Permeation Temperature and Annealing Procedure on the Performance of Binary and Ternary Mixed Matrix Membranes of Polyethersulfone, SAPO-34, and 2-Hydroxy 5-Methyl Aniline
Oral, Edibe Eda; Yılmaz, Levent; Kalıpçılar, Halil (Wiley, 2014-09-05)
This study investigated the effect of annealing time and temperature on gas separation performance of mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) prepared from polyethersulfone (PES), SAPO-34, and 2-hydroxy 5-methyl aniline (HMA). A postannealing period at 120 degrees C for a week extensively increased the reproducibility and stability of MMMs, but for pure PES membranes no postannealing was necessary for stable and reproducible performance. The effect of operation temperature was also investigated. The permeabilities of...
Dynamic mechanical properties of dental base material reinforced with glass fiber
Karacaer, O; Dogan, A; Dogan, OM; Usanmaz, Ali (Wiley, 2002-08-22)
Dynamic mechanical properties of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) reinforced with glass fibers were investigated. The composite used as dental base material contained other additives for different purposes to give the same appearance as natural dentals. The fiber-polymer bonding and orientation of fibers in polymer matrix are very important in the application of the product. To see that, the fibers were treated with silane and compared with untreated fibers. The commercial polymer and monomer used were the ...
Fine-tuning the mechanical properties of hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene/ammonium perchlorate-based composite solid propellants by varying the NCO/OH and triol/diol ratios
Hocaoglu, O; Ozbelge, T; Pekel, F; Özkar, Saim (Wiley, 2002-06-13)
Changes in the mechanical properties of hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene/ammonium perchlorate-based composite solid propellants were studied during the curing period with respect to variations in the crosslink density, which was predominantly determined by the equivalent ratio of diisocyanate to total hydroxyl (NCO/OH ratio) and the equivalent ratio of triol to diol (triol/diol ratio). For this purpose, 16 propellants were prepared in different compositions through changes in the NCO/OH ratios (0.81, 0.82,...
Preparation and Comparison of Two Electrodes for Supercapacitors: Pani/CNT/Ni and Pani/Alizarin-Treated Nickel
Koysuren, Ozcan; Du, Chunsheng; Pan, Ning; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2009-07-15)
Polyaniline in emeraldine form was synthesized in the presence of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs), and the electrochemical capacitance performance of thus formed composite as electrode material has been Studied. The polyaniline/carbon nanotubes (Pani/CNT) composite is found to result in a higher specific capacitance than that of either composite constituent, attributable to the double-layer capacitance behavior of the nanotubes in the Pani/CNT system. However, once assembled into a two-electrode cell, l...
Effect of composite preparation techniques on electrical and mechanical properties and morphology of nylon 6 based conductive polymer composites
Koysuren, Ozcan; Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2006-11-05)
Nylon 6/carbon black conductive composites were prepared using two different methods, masterbatch dilution and melt mixing. Their effect on the size and distribution of carbon black agglomerates in the matrix was studied in terms of electrical and mechanical properties and morphology. The electrical resistivity of composites prepared by both methods decreased with increasing filler composition. The electrical resistivity of the diluted masterbatch composites and the melt mixed composites was reduced from th...
