Electrical and Mechanical Properties of Polypropylene/Carbon Black Composites

Kanbur, Yasin
Kucukyavuz, Zuhal
Polypropylene(PP)/carbon black(CB) composites at different compositions were prepared via melt blending of PP with CB. The effect of CB content on mechanical and electrical properties was studied. Test samples were prepared by injection molding and compression molding techniques. The effect of processing type on mechanical and electrical properties was also investigated. Composites become semi-conductive by addition of 2wt% CB. The relation between mechanical and electrical properties was discussed. The influence of CB content on morphology and crystallinity was also studied.


Efficient light emitting diodes from polyfluorene copolymer blends
Çırpan, Ali; Karasz, FE (Elsevier BV, 2005-04-30)
Highly efficient light emitting diodes were obtained by blending blue-emitting poly [(9,9-dioctylfluorenyl-2,7-diyl)-alt-co-(N,N'-diphenyl)-N,N-di(p-butyl-oxyphenyl)-1 ,4-diaminobenzene] (1) with green-emitting poly [(9,9-dioctyl-2,7-divinylene-fluorenylene)-alt-co-{2-methoxy-5-(2-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-phenylene}] (II). Only green emission was obtained from the films of polymer blends and from corresponding double-layer LEDs, indicating an almost complete Forster energy transfer from I to II. These devices sho...
Immobilization of Invertase in a Novel Proton Conducting Poly(vinylphosphonic acid) - poly(1-vinylimidazole) Network
Isikli, Suheda; Tuncagil, Sevinc; Bozkurt, Ayhan; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
A novel proton conducting polymer blend was prepared by mixing poly(vinylphosphonic acid) (PVPA) with poly(1-vinylimidazole) (PVI) at various stoichiometric ratios via changing molar ratio of monomer repeating unit to achieve the highest protonation. The polymer network having the most suitable stoichiometric ratio for substantial proton conductivity was prepared and characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy and proton conductivity measurements. The network was used for immobilization of invertase and some import...
Effects of processing parameters on mechanical and thermal properties of glass mat reinforced nylon 6 composites
Akkaoui, W; Bayram, Göknur (SAGE Publications, 2004-01-01)
Nylon 6 (PA6)/Glass Mat (GM) composites and pure PA6 were prepared by compression molding technique and the effects of molding temperature, pressure application time and GM content on the final properties of the materials were investigated. At each temperature and pressure application time, the composite with one layer GM had higher tensile strength, tensile modulus but lower % elongation at break than neat PA6. Processing parameters did not significantly influence the tensile behavior of the pure PA6 and P...
Monotonic and cyclic compressive behavior of superelastic TiNi foams processed by sintering using magnesium space holder technique
Nakas, G. Ipek; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi; Bor, Sakir (Elsevier BV, 2013-10-10)
TiNi foams with porosity contents varying in the range of 39-58 vol% were processed by sintering with space holder technique. Magnesium was employed as the space holder material because of its relatively low boiling temperature as well as high oxygen affinity. Processed foams were characterized in terms of both microstructural and mechanical aspects. Scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffractometer (XRD) and transmission electron microscope (TEM) were employed for microstructure and phase analyses w...
Production and properties of tooth-colored yttria stabilized zirconia ceramics for dental applications
Kaplan, Melis; PARK, JONGEE; Kim, Soo Young; Öztürk, Abdullah (Elsevier BV, 2018-02-01)
Dense zirconia stabilized with 3 mol% yttria ceramics were produced in disc shape by first cold isostatically pressing at 100 MPa and then sintering at 1450 degrees C at ambient laboratory conditions. Coloring was accomplished by immersion the discs in NiCl2, MoCl3, and NiCl2 + MoCl3 solutions for 5, 30, and 60 s. Different concentrations (0.1, 0.25, and 0.5 wt%) were applied to get the color of natural tooth. The density, color, microhardness, fracture toughness, compressive strength, and wear rate of the ...
