In this study, boric acid as a binder for briquetting some boron mine wastes, such as colemanite and ulexite fines and calcined products, which do not meet the market specifications with respect to particle size, were investigated. Effects of water and binder contents, applied pressure, and curing and drying conditions on the briquette quality were evaluated in terms of mechanical strength, water-proofing characteristics and wearing resistance. The best briquettes were obtained at 62.4 MPa pressure (cured at ambient temperature for 24 h and dried at 105 C for 2 h). Only binder free briquettes of uncalcined ulexite gave satisfactory result. The briquette strength increased with an increase in the percentage of binder. The optimum binder content was found to be 5 % by weight for uncalcined ulexite and colemanite as well as calcined colemanite, but 10 To by weight for calcined ulexite. The water-proof briquettes of ulexite and calcined products of ulexite and colemanite fines could be produced. According to wearing resistance, ulexite and colemanite fines as well as calcined product of colemanite showed resistance to abrasion action during transportation and loading.

Use of boron oxide and boric acid to improve flame retardancy of an organophosphorus compound in neat and fiber reinforced polyamide-6
POLAT, Osman; Kaynak, Cevdet (2016-09-01)
The aim of this study was to investigate the usability of boron oxide and boric acid to enhance flame retardancy of (aluminum diethyl phosphinate)-type organophosphorus compound in polyamide-6 and its 15 wt% of short (glass fiber)-reinforced composite. Materials were compounded by melt-mixing method via a twin-screw extruder, and the specimens for testing and analyses were shaped by injection and compression-molding. For the neat polyamide-6 specimens, mass loss cone calorimetry analyses indicated that repl...
Comparative study on mechanical, thermal, viscoelastic and rheological properties of vulcanised EPDM rubber
Çavdar, Şeyma; Ozdemir, T.; Usanmaz, Ali (Informa UK Limited, 2010-07-01)
In this study, mechanical, thermal and rheological properties of vulcanised ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber containing different amounts of vulcanising agent, filler, paraffinic oil and stearic acid were compared. Moreover, reaction rate constant of the curing reaction has been calculated from the results of the rheological tests, and relative change of rate constant with the change of additives was studied by a new method. Thermal gravimetric analysis with in situ Fourier transform infrared ...
Improvement of organoclay dispersion into polystyrene-based nanocomposites by incorporation of SBS and maleic anhydride-grafted SBS
Dike, Ali Sinan; Yılmazer, Ülkü (SAGE Publications, 2020-04-01)
In this study, organoclay-containing polystyrene (PS)-based nanocomposites were fabricated by extrusion in the presence of thermoplastic elastomer modifiers. Styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) rubber was used as the elastomeric compatibilizer and maleic anhydride (MA) was grafted onto SBS rubber at different ratios. Grafting was made via melt blending. Cloisite (R) 30B was used as the organoclay and it was added to PS and PS/SBS blends using a corotating twin-screw extruder, followed by injection molding. Clay...
Comparison of Natural Halloysite With Synthetic Carbon Nanotubes in Poly(lactic acid) Based Composites
Erpek, Canan Esma Yeniova; ÖZKOÇ, GÜRALP; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2017-11-01)
The objective of this study is to compare the mechanical properties, structure and degradability of the nanocomposites prepared with tubular nanofillers, halloysite (HNT) and carbon nanotube (CNT) in poly(lactic acid) (PLA), and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) toughened PLA (T-PLA) matrices. In the PLA matrix, CNT increased, whereas HNT decreased the tensile strength with increasing filler content. Also, the elongation at break and impact strength decreased with increasing CNT content, but these properties...
Fate and degradation kinetics of nonylphenol compounds in aerobic batch digesters
Omeroglu, Seçil; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2014-11-01)
Nonylphenol (NP) compounds are toxic and persistent chemicals that are not fully degraded either in natural or engineered systems. Current knowledge indicates that these compounds concentrate in sewage sludge. Therefore, investigating the degradation patterns and types of metabolites formed during sludge treatment are important for land application of sewage sludge. Unfortunately, the information on the fate of nonylphenol compounds in sludge treatment is very limited. This study aims to investigate the bio...
