The effect of microcapsulated red phosphorus (mRP) was studied on the flame retardant, thermal and mechanical properties of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) composites containing Huntite&hydromagnesite (HH). The flame retardant properties of TPU based composites were investigated using limiting oxygen index (LOI), vertical burning test (UL 94), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and mass loss calorimeter. The mechanical properties of composites were studied using tensile test and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA). According to the test results, the adjuvant effect of mRP was observed in terms of both flammability and mechanical properties of composites. The highest LOI value (32.5), the highest UL-94 rating (VO) and the lowest pHRR (155 kW/m(2)) value were observed with the partial substitution of 7 wt% mRP with HH. The tensile strength also increased at about 60% with respect to TPU/50HH. The mRP showed the synergistic effect by increasing the barrier effect of residue in the condensed phase and the formation of active radicals in the gas phase. The mRP showed adjuvant effect on mechanical properties due to the plasticizing and compatibilizer effect of low molecular weight epoxy resin carrier.

The effect of expandable graphite (EG) was studied on the flame retardant, thermal and mechanical properties of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) containing huntite&hydromagnesite (HH). According to the flammability tests results, the synergistic interaction was observed between HH and EG. The maximum limiting oxygen index (LOI value was observed at a ratio of 1:1 (HH:EG) and the highest vertical burning test (UL-94) rating of V0 was observed at a ratios of 4:1, 3:2 and 1:1. The synergistic interaction betwe...
Influence of zinc borate on flame retardant and thermal properties of polyurethane elastomer composites containing huntite-hydromagnesite mineral
Dike, Ali Sinan; Tayfun, Umit; DOĞAN, Mehmet (2017-11-01)
The effect of zinc borate (ZnB) was studied on the flame retardant and thermal properties of thermoplastic polyurethane containing huntite-hydromagnesite. The flame retardant properties of thermoplastic polyurethane-based composites were investigated using limiting oxygen index, vertical burning test (UL 94), thermogravimetric analysis, and mass loss calorimeter. No remarkable effect of ZnB was observed on the flammability properties of composites. UL 94 rating did not change regardless of the added amount ...
Effect of Carbon Black and/or Elastomer on Thermoplastic Elastomer-based Blends and Composites
Yaşar, Mehmet Soner; Bayram, Göknur (2014-06-12)
It was aimed to investigate the effect of carbon black and/or elastomer on the electrical conductivity and mechanical properties of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). Carbon black (CB) and ethylene-glycidyl methacrylate (E-GMA) were used as additives in the main matrix. The blends and composites were characterized in terms of their electrical conductivity and mechanical properties. CB concentration was varied as 0.5, 1, 3 and 5 wt.%. In order to modify the surface of CB, paraffinic oil and silane coupling agent...
Effects of glass fiber reinforcement and thermoplastic elastomer blending on the mechanical performance of polylactide
Varsavas, S. Deniz; Kaynak, Cevdet (2018-06-01)
The purpose of this study was to investigate how optimum mechanical properties (strength-modulus-toughness) of inherently very brittle polylactide (PLA) could be obtained by reinforcing with E-glass fibers (GF) and blending with thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer (TPU). Composites and blends were compounded by twin-screw extruder melt mixing, while specimens were shaped by injection molding. SEM analyses revealed that 15 wt% GF and 10 wt% TPU domains, alone and together, could be uniformly distributed in ...
Effect of surface treatment on electrical conductivity of carbon black filled conductive polymer composites
Koysuren, Ozcan; Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2007-06-05)
Two different types of surface modifiers, 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane and formamide, were applied to carbon black (CB) particles to lower electrical resistivity of polymer composites prepared by treated CB. Two different matrices, low-density polyethylene and nylon 6, were chosen to compound with surface modified CB. Surface energy of CB was increased by adding amine or amide functional groups during surface treatment of CB. According to electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA), chemical modifica...
