Optimisation of the effect of colemanite as a new synergistic agent in an intumescent system
An intumescent system including ammonium polyphosphate (APP) as an acid source and blowing agent, pentaerythritol (PER) as a carbonific agent and colemanite as a synergistic agent is used to enhance flame retardancy of ...
Synergistic effect of natural zeolites on flame retardant additives
The thermal degradation and flammability of intumescent fire-retardant polypropylene matrix composites consisting of ammonium polyphosphate (APP) as an acid source and blowing agent, pentaerythritol (PER) as a carbonisation ...
Dye adsorption behavior of Luffa cylindrica fibers
Using natural Luffa cylindrica fibers as adsorbent removal of methylene blue dye from aqueous solutions at different temperatures and dye concentrations was investigated in this study. Thermodynamics and kinetics of ...
Influence of surface modification of fillers and polymer on flammability and tensile behaviour of polypropylene-composites
An intumescent system consisting of ammonium polyphosphate (APP) as an acid source and blowing agent, pentaerythritol (PER) as a carbonific agent and natural zeolite (clinoptilolite, Gördes II) as a synergistic agent was ...
The effect of fiber surface treatments on the tensile and water sorption properties of polypropylene-luffa fiber composites
The effects of coupling agents on the mechanical, morphological, and water sorption properties of luffa fiber (LF)/polypropylene(PP) composites were studied. In order to enhance the interfacial interactions between the PP ...
Effect of additives on flexible PVC foam formation
In this study, effects of Ca/Zn stearate and organotin heat stabilizers and zeolite, CaCO3, cellulose and luffa flours fillers, and their concentrations (2.5, 5, 10 and 20% by weight) on production of flexible PVC foams ...
