In this paper, a kind of surface treatment agent and its application on the functional wall fabrics that can produce negative ion was reported. This surface treatment agent was prepared by using nano tourmaline powder dispersion with water as solvent produced by sand milling. The parameters of sand milling process, as well as powder diameter and its distribution, and the negative ion releasing behavior of the functional wall fabrics were discussed. The results showed that nano tourmaline had good dispersity stability with the number average diameter (d50) achieved 190nm and the polydispersity index reached to 0.220. The treated wall fabrics showed good performance in high adsorption with nano powder and high negative ions releasing ability. The negative ions releasing amount changes depending on the different surface treatment process of tourmaline dispersion and three-proofing agent. This facility technics could be widely used as industrial application. © The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2016.

In this work, we investigate the creep and recovery behaviours of polystyrene (PS) composites filled with two-dimensional chemically reduced graphene oxide (CRGO) sheets. Incorporation of CRGO into PS polymer is found to significantly improve the creep resistance and recovery properties. The results are compared with the creep and recovery of the corresponding composites with carbon black (CB) and carbon nanotube (CNT) nano-additives, and it is observed that both the CB/PS and CNT/PS systems present worse efficiencies in reducing the creep and unrecovered response. The CRGO sheets with corrugated structures possess higher specific surface area and display better dispersion in the PS matrix compared to the CB or CNT nano-additives, which should produce strong sheet/matrix interfacial interaction to restrict the mobility of polymer chains. The formation mechanisms are further interpreted based on the analysis from the dynamic mechanical properties and thermo-gravimetric results. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

The attainment of both high toughness and superior electrical conductivity of epoxy composites is a crucial requirement in some engineering applications. Herein, we developed a strategy to improve these performances of epoxy by combining the multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and spherical particles. Two different types of spherical particles i.e. soft submicron-rubber and rigid nano-silica particles were chosen to modify the epoxy/MWCNT composites. Compared with the binary composites with single-phase particles, the ternary composites with MWCNTs and spherical particles offer a good balance in glass transition temperature, electrical conductivity, stiffness and strength, as well as fracture toughness, exhibiting capacities in tailoring the electrical and mechanical properties of epoxy composites. Based on the fracture surface analysis, the complicated interactions between multiscale particles and the relative toughening mechanisms were evaluated to explain the enhancement in fracture toughness of the ternary composites. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Fibers and Polymers | Year: 2014

The introduction of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) into conventional fiber to construct a hierarchical structure in polymer composites has attracted great interest owing to their merits of performance improvement and multiple functionalities. However, there is a challenge for realizing the scalable preparation of the multi-scale CNT-glass fiber (CNTGF) reinforcements in practical application. In this work, we present a simple and continuous method of the mass production of multiscale CNT-glass fiber (CNT-GF) reinforcements. Scanning electron microscopy and thermo gravimetric analysis indicated ~1.0 wt% CNTs were highly dispersed on the whole fiber surface through a facile surfactant-assisted process. Such hybrid CNT-GF fillers were found to effectively enhance the stiffness, strength and impact resistance of polypropylene polymer. Increased storage modulus, glass transition temperature and crystallization temperature of the composites filled with the CNT-GF fillers were also observed in the differential scanning calorimetry and dynamic mechanical analysis compared with the composites containing the pristine GF fillers. Fracture surface analysis revealed enhanced interfacial quality between CNT-GF and matrix, which is likely responsible for improved performance of the hierarchical polymer composites. © 2014 The Korean Fiber Society and Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

A low dielectric constant glass fiber, in mass percentage, includes 50%60% of SiO_(2), 10%20% of Al_(2)O_(3), 12%20% of B_(2)O_(3), 04% of CaO, 4%10% of MgO, 0.1%0.5% of Na_(2)O+K_(2)O, 00.5% of Li_(2)O, 0.2%3% of F_(2 )and 00.2% of Fe_(2)O_(3). Compared with the related art, the glass composition contains higher content of SiO_(2), which can greatly reduce dielectric properties of the glass fiber. Meanwhile, a small amount of F_(2 )is added thereto, which not only can effectively improve the fiberizing temperature of the glass fiber but also can reduce glass viscosity and density and reduce glass refractive index and dielectric properties. In addition, lower content of CaO is further contained, but almost no alkali metal particles such as Na_(2)O+K_(2)O are contained, which further reduces the dielectric properties of the glass fiber.
