MELT BLENDING OF ULTRA-HIGH-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT AND HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE - THE EFFECT OF MIXING RATE ON THERMAL, MECHANICAL, AND MORPHOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

TINCER, T
COSKUN, M
The blends of two different ultra high molecular weight polyethylenes (UHMWPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) were prepared in melt at different compositions and mixing rates in Brabender Torque Rheometer. The temperature build-up due to the internal friction during melt blending was recorded and evaluated with respect to the change in the torque. The temperature at maximum torque was considered the fusion point temperature of the UHMWPE in the blend. This fusion point temperature was found to depend on the composition, mixing rate, and molecular weight. The effect of mixing rate on the mechanical properties (measured as yield and tensile strengths and elongation at break), thermal oxidative degradation and melting behavior were studied. The morphology of the blends were investigated by optical microscopy.

Chain-extended bismaleimides .1. Preparation and characterization of maleimide-terminated resins
Yerlikaya, Z; Oktem, Z; Bayramlı, Erdal (1996-01-03)
Starting from aromatic diamines, a series of bismaleimides (BMIs) and maleimide-terminated structural resins were prepared in solution and characterized. Maleimide-terminated resins were prepared through Michael addition reaction with 3/2 molar ratio of bismaleimide and aromatic diamine as reactants. The structural analysis was performed by FTIR and H-1-NMR spectroscopy. Thermal properties are investigated by TGA, DTA, and DSC. Number-average molecular-weights of the resins were determined by cryoscopy. The...
Atomic ordering characteristics of Ni3Al intermetallics with substitutional ternary additions
Mehrabov, Amdulla; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat (1997-03-01)
The effects of substitutional ternary additions of Me = Zn, Ti, Si, Cr, Mn, Mo, W, Nb, Ta, V, Hf, or Zr on the energetical and structural characteristics of atomic short-range ordering (SRO) of Ni-3(Al(1-x)Me(x)) intermetallics with L1(2) type ordered structure have been analysed by combining the statistical theory of ordering with the electronic theory of alloys in pseudopotential approximation. The partial ordering energies and pairwise SRO parameters were calculated by taking into account the influence o...
Hydration layer: a potential key to manage colloidal processing of oxide nanopowder suspensions
Çınar, Simge (2017-07-13)
The majority of ceramic processing techniques relies on the successful slurry preparation that ensures homogeneous distribution of powders in a highly loaded slurry with manageable flow characteristics. Only with effective slurry formulation, crack- and pore- free structures can ultimately be manufactured. However, this still remain a challenging issue for advancing technology of additive manufacturing. The available models to predict the colloidal properties of nanopowder slurries therefore require improve...

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...
Metal-assisted nano-textured solar cells with SiO2/Si3N4 passivation
Es, Fırat; Baytemir, Gulsen; Kulakci, Mustafa; Turan, Raşit (2017-02-01)
We demonstrate the fabrication of nano-sized surface textured crystalline silicon by a metal-assisted electroless etching method with nitric acid added as the hole injection agent. This method generates randomly shaped cone-like structures that offer a clear advantage over nanowires by enabling straightforward passivation with standard techniques. Average reflection values as low as 3% have been achieved. Optimizing the thickness of anti-reflective coatings, the doping depth and the screen-printed metal fir...
