By Marino Xanthos

A accomplished and updated assessment of the most important mineral and natural fillers for plastics, their creation, constitution and homes, in addition to their functions by way of basic and secondary capabilities. Edited and co-authored through Professor Marino Xanthos with contributions by way of overseas specialists from and academia, this publication provides tools of mixing/incorporation applied sciences, floor remedies and variations for superior performance, an research of parameters affecting filler functionality and a presentation of present and rising functions. also, the unconventional class in accordance with amendment of particular polymer homes instead of filler chemical composition offers a greater knowing of the relationships among processing, constitution and houses of goods containing useful fillers and the identity of recent markets and applications.For engineers, scientists and technologists taken with the real area of polymer composites.

Sample text

Parameters affecting composite strength sc are the ultimate strength of the fibers or ribbons sfu, the ultimate strength of the matrix smu, or the stress borne by the 0 matrix, s m , when the fibers or ribbons fail, volume fractions, the shear strength of the matrix or bond strength t, and the angle between the direction of stress and the fiber axis. Maximal strength in the fiber composites is obtained in the longitudinal case, that is, at an angle of 0 in the case of perfect adhesion. Under these conditions, the composite efficiently utilizes the strong reinforcement, and the overall failure is by fiber or ribbon fracture.

The need to minimize contact angle to maximize the work of adhesion Wa is shown by the following Young–Dupre equations: Wa ¼ c1 þ c2 Àc12 ð2:2Þ Wa ¼ c2 ð1 þ cos qÞ ð2:3Þ The need to minimize unfavorable interfacial interactions by minimizing the interfacial tension c12 can also be inferred from the following simplified Good– Girifalco equations: c12 ¼ c1 þ c2 À2W ðc1 c2 Þ0:5 Wa ¼ 2W ðc1 c2 Þ 0:5 ð2:4Þ ð2:5Þ where W is the interaction parameter that depends on polarity. Polarity is defined as the ratio of the polar component of the surface tension to the total surface tension.

As described by Heinold [9], the first generation of fillers soon after the commercialization of polypropylene included talc platelets and asbestos fibers for their beneficial effects on stiffness and heat resistance. The search for an asbestos replacement due to health issues led to calcium carbonate particles and mica flakes as the second-generation fillers. Mica was found to be more effective than talc for increasing stiffness and heat resistance, whereas calcium carbonate was less effective in increasing stiffness but increased the impact resistance of PP homopolymers.
