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 heat-cured type. However, in addition to heat curing, gamma-radiation was also used in curing. This gives much improved material in terms of mechanical properties. The voids, which cause mechanical failure in the material, will be minimal in number with irradiation curing. The results showed that the orientation of all fibers were not regular. This could be observed from the micrographs and DMA behaviors of samples. (C) 2002 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Mechanical properties of soft liner-poly(methyl methacrylate)-based denture material
Usanmaz, Ali; Latifoglu, MA; Dogan, A; Akkas, N; Yetmez, M (Wiley, 2002-07-18)
In this study, the mechanical properties of two different permanent soft lining materials and their bonding to poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) were compared. Both of the soft liners were heat-cured commercial materials. The polymerization was carried out by conventional methods suggested by manufacturer, and the curing was done at the temperature of boiling water for 5, 15, 25, and 35 min. The sample groups were tested in the computer-aided tensile-testing machine at a rate of 2 mm/min. The slow rate helps...
Flexible and conducting composites of polypyrrole and polydimethylsiloxane
Cahmak, G; Kucukyavuz, Z; Kucukyavuz, S (Wiley, 2004-07-15)
Conductive and flexible polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)/polypyrrole (PPy) composites were synthesized electrochemically. Electrochemical syntheses were performed at +1.10 V by using p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA) as supporting electrolyte and water as solvent. Composites were characterized by cyclic voltammetry, thermogravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, scanning electron microscopy, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Conductivity measurements and mechanical tests were also perform...
Indium tin oxide nanoparticles as anode for light-emitting diodes
Çırpan, Ali (Wiley, 2006-02-15)
Thin films of indium tin oxide (ITO) nanoparticles have been investigated as anode materials for polymer light-emitting diodes. A luminance efficiency (0.13 cd/ A), higher than that (0.09 cd/A) obtained in a control devices fabricated on conventional commercial ITO anodes were found. The thin films were made by spin coating of a suspension followed by annealing. The ITO nartoparticle films have a stable sheet resistance of 200 ohm/sq, and an optical transmittance greater than 86% over the range of 400-1000 ...
Poly(methyl methacrylate) hybrid syntactic foams with hollow glass microspheres and polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes
Ozkutlu, Merve; Dilek Hacıhabiboğlu, Çerağ; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2019-08-10)
The study aims to produce poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)-based lower density syntactic foams with hollow glass microspheres (HGMs) and to improve their mechanical properties by the addition of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSSs) while maintaining the thermal properties of the neat polymer. First to understand the effect of POSS addition, PMMA-POSS composites with octaisobutyl and octaphenyl POSS were produced through extrusion. Higher relative flexural and impact strengths were obtained with POS...
Viscoelastic characteristics of chain extended/branched and linear polyethylene terephthalate resins
Yılmazer, Ülkü; Xanthos, M; Bayram, Göknur; Tan, V (Wiley, 2000-03-01)
Two chemically modified chain extended/branched polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins and one unmodified resin, considered to be linear, were characterized in terms of their melt flow, die swell, and viscoelastic properties. The three resins had reportedly similar nominal intrinsic viscosities but exhibited different viscoelastic behavior. The modified resins had lower melt flow index, higher die swell, higher complex viscosity and higher storage modulus than the unmodified one. The Cole-Cole plots of the...
