Influence of Processing Induced Morphology on the Performance of PP Injected Intricate Pieces Modified with MWCNT as a Painting Aide

Alejandra Costantino; Leandro Ramajo; Julio Viana; Caren Rosales; Antonio Pontes; Valeria Pettarin

Volume 12, Issue 4 , April 2021, , Pages 1-10


  Carbon nanotubes are currently added to polymers to avoid extra-stages in the electrostatic painting process. However, the attained particle network after processing a final part could affect the mechanical properties and thermal stability of nanocomposites. It is then important to evaluate not only ...  Read More

Influence of Different Copolymer Based Compatibilizers on Performance of Pristine and Recycled PP/PE blends

C. Rosales; A. Costantino; G. Palazzo; C. Bernal; R. Defacio Dutra; V. Pettarin

Volume 11, Issue 11 , November 2020, , Pages 1-8


  One of the big engineering challenges in recycling thermoplastics is to manufacture competitive products in terms of mechanical properties such as toughness or strength. This process by which recycled waste is transformed into materials with improved performance, adding value and widening their application ...  Read More

Morphology/tensile Performance Relationship for LLDPE/PP Double Gated Injected Blends

Caren Rosales; Diego Brendstrup; Celina Bernal; Valeria Pettarin

Volume 11, Issue 2 , February 2020, , Pages 22-27


  Due to the large volume consumption of plastics, the treatment of the resulting solid waste is becoming a major concern. Polyethylene and polypropylene are two of the most abundant polymers in waste. Recycling them as a blend is an attractive way to reduce the impact of plastic wastes. This work is focused ...  Read More
