Polyolefin Foams by N.J. Mills

By N.J. Mills

Polyolefin Foams are a comparatively fresh improvement in comparison to the opposite different types of foam. issues lined during this overview contain: processing and the houses required for profitable foam creation, the molecular buildings worthwhile, the mechanical and thermal homes and the way those can be utilized to most sensible virtue, markets and purposes. The evaluation is followed through round four hundred abstracts from the Polymer Library database.

5, CD-ROM, 012 EFFECT OF VISCOSITY ON LOW DENSITY FOAMING OF POLY(ETHYLENE-CO-OCTENE) RESINS Vachon C; Gendron R Canada,National Research Council (SPE) Poly(ethylene-co-octene) copolymers with differing melt flow indices, crosslinked using dicumyl peroxide (DCP), were characterised by dynamic rheology and elongational viscosity studies. 54 wt% DCP and azodicarbonamide blowing agent were evaluated in relation to the polymer rheological properties. It was concluded that to obtain a good foam required a balance between polymer viscosity and branching, and also that crosslinking is required to maintain expansion and to prevent collapse.

Increasing the saturation pressure increased cell nucleation, so that samples processed at high pressures had higher cell densities and reduced cell sizes. Foaming was promoted by increasing the time of polymer exposure to carbon dioxide prior to extrusion, attributed to the dependence of cell nucleation on the mount of dissolved gas. Dissolution of carbon dioxide in LDPE at higher temperatures restricted foaming and resulted in gas bubbles on the extrudate surface. The thermal properties of HDPE were not modified by foaming, attributed to the high crystallisation rate.
