Micron-size crystalline particles of Poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET), obtained from PET bottles by crystallization and grinding, were used as a filler in high-density polyethylene (HDPE). The composite of PET particle-filled HDPE was prepared by melt mixing at 190 degreesC, which was well below the melting temperature of PET. Silane coupling agents (SCAs) were used to enhance the interaction between PET and HDPE in the composite. A chain extender (CE) and maleic anhydride (MA) were also used to provide further interaction with SCAs between these two materials. The ultimate tensile strength, especially at highest content 40% PET-filled HDPE, and the impact strength of SCAs-treated PET-filled HDPE was found to be highly improved compared to untreated PET filling into HDPE. Dynamic mechanical analyses (DMA) demonstrated that T-g of the main matrix polyethylene was depressed from 3 to 10 degreesC. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studies indicated a strong interaction between PET powder and HDPE when SCAs were present in the system. (C) 2000 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Preparation and Characterization of Low Density Polyethylene/Ethylene Methyl Acrylate Glycidyl Methacrylate/Organoclay Nanocomposites
Coskunses, Fatma Isik; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2011-06-05)
The effects of organoclay type, compatibilizer, and the addition order of components during melt-blending process on the morphology and thermal, mechanical, and flow properties of ternary nanocomposites based on low-density polyethylene (LDPE) were investigated. As a compatibilizer, ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA), as organoclays Cloisites (R) 15A, 25A, and 30B were used. All samples were prepared by a corotating twin screw extruder, followed by injection molding. The highest incre...
Compatibility study of waste poly(ethylene terephthalate) with poly(vinyl chloride). II
Akovali, G; Karababa, Eminegül (Wiley, 1998-05-02)
In this study, exploration of possibilities for use of recycled poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) in powder form as a filler in the PVC matrix was made. Powdered PET surfaces were modified by plasma to enhance the degree of interaction and, hence, the compatibilities. For modification, a series of different chlorine-containing monomers at two plasma operational conditions selected were used, in addition to the direct use of an oligomer of vinyl chloride. A series of mechanical, thermal, and surface energy ...
Preparation and characterization of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene and polyisoprene solvent-cast blend films
Akinay, AE; Tincer, T (Wiley, 1998-02-28)
This study covers the preparation of noncrosslinked and crosslinked solvent-cast blend films of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and polyisoprene rubber (PIR) and their mechanical, thermal, IR spectroscopic, and morphological characterizations. Solvent-cast films of polymer blends with 0, 10, 20, 35, 50, and 65% PIR composition were prepared by vigorous stirring from a hot decalin solution. The films were crosslinked chemically by using acetophenone as a crosslinking agent under UV radiation...
PREPARATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF PERLITE-FILLED HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENES .2. THERMAL AND FLOW PROPERTIES
AKINOKTEM, G; TINCER, T (Wiley, 1994-11-21)
Thermal and flow properties of perlite-filled high-density polyethylenes (HDPE), studied in the first part of the paper, are discussed. Maximum peak temperatures of endotherms (T-mp) and the corresponding relative peak heights were examined by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The data obtained from a Brabender torque rheometer were evaluated to find the melt viscosities at low shear rate during preparation of perlite-HDPE composites. The filler concentration, types of HDPEs, and the use of gamma-APS...
Synthesis and Characterization of 2-Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate (HEMA) and Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) Copolymer Used as Biomaterial
Vargun, Elif; SANKIR, MEHMET; Aran, Bengi; DEMİRCİ SANKIR, NURDAN; Usanmaz, Ali (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
A series of poly(methyl methacrylate-co-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PMMA-co-PHEMA), copolymers were synthesized by an emulsion polymerization technique. Copolymer compositions were determined by FT-IR and 1H-NMR spectroscopy. It was found that comonomer ratios used in the recipes were comparable within the actual copolymers. Glass transition temperatures (Tg) of PMMA-co-PHEMA copolymers were varied from 119 degrees C to 100 degrees C by increasing HEMA content. Thermogravimetric analysis showed that the cop...
