PREPARATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF PERLITE-FILLED HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENES .1. MECHANICAL-PROPERTIES

Four different types of high-density polyethylenes (HDPE) were blended with perlite at different concentrations. Silane coupling agent gamma-aminopropyltriethoxy silane (gamma-APS, A-1100) was used to enhance the adhesion between perlite and HDPEs. Ultimate tensile strength and elastic modulus increased as the perlite content increased, while ultimate elongations decreased with the increasing amount of perlite. Exceptional variations in the measured properties are explained in terms of the differences in polyethylenes used in the composites. The biggest improvement in ultimate tensile strength was observed in the highly crystalline polyethylene; on the other hand, in the absence of silane coupling agent the high molecular weight polyethylene showed the least improvement in tensile strength. The effect of branching in HDPE composites was demonstrated. The enhancement of interfacial adhesion by using a coupling agent was also examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

Preparation and characterization of poly(ethylene terephthalate) powder-filled high-density polyethylene in the presence of silane coupling agents
Demir, T; Tincer, T (Wiley, 2001-01-31)
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 f...
Reactive processing and properties of styrene-maleic anhydride and poly(tetramethylene ether glycol)
Bayram, G; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2002-03-07)
The anhydride/hydroxyl-functionalized blends of styrene-maleic anhydride (SMAH) with poly(tetramethylene ether glycol) (PTMEG) in the presence or absence of a hydrated zinc acetate catalyst were produced in a batch mixer and in a corotating twin-screw extruder. In batch mixing, torque values increased with time as a result of chain-extension/branching reactions. The reaction products were studied by thermal, mechanical, morphological, and spectroscopic characterization techniques. The glass transition tempe...
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...
Preparation and Characterization of Polypropylene/Serpentine Composites
Tan, Semra; Tincer, İsmail Teoman (Wiley, 2011-07-15)
Composites of serpentine and polypropylene (PP) were prepared by twin-screw extrusion. Serpentine was collected as rocks from the Ankara-Beynam region and ground into powder with an average particle size of about 3 mu m for composite production. Both as-received (rock) and powdered serpentine were characterized. A silane coupling agent (SCA), gamma-aminopropyl triethoxy silane, was used for the surface treatment of serpentine. Mechanical properties of the composites were measured in terms of impact strength...
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...
