This work presents the syntheses of PU nanocomposites, by in situ polymerization technique, using different synthetic talcs as inorganic filler. The fillers were obtained from two different hydrothermal treatments and composition (talc-Mg and talc-Ni). For nanocomposites syntheses 3% w/w of synthetic talc were added related to the weight of pure...

Preparation of Polyurethane Foams Based on Maltodextrin and Their Potential Use in Methyl Ester...

Biodiesel can be obtained by transesterification of the triglycerides present in the vegetable oil and animal fat. After the reaction it is necessary to purify the alkyl esters. One way to obtain this is making the dry wash. Thus, this study proposes the preparation of polyurethane foams with maltodextrin as sorbents for use in the biodiesel...

Surface degradation and nanoparticle release of a commercial nanosilica/polyurethane coating under...

Many coating properties such as mechanical, electrical, and ultraviolet (UV) resistance are greatly enhanced by the addition of nanoparticles, which can potentially increase the use of nanocoatings for many outdoor applications. However, because polymers used in all coatings are susceptible to degradation by weathering, nanoparticles in a coating...

The effects of surface roughness on varnish adhesion strength of wood materials

In this study, the effects of surface roughness of wood material on the adhesion strength of varnish layers have been tested. For this purpose, test samples of beech (Fagus orientalis L.), Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.), and cherry (Prunus cerasus) wood species were prepared and sanded with 80, 120, and 180 grit abrasives. The surface roughness...

Influence of Gamma Irradiation on the Change of the Characterization of Elastomeric Polyurethane

Using gamma radiation technique, four characteristic changes were investigated to determine their effect on the surface morphology and physical properties of isocyanate-terminated polyurethane prepolymers. The four samples of polyurethane put in flask vacuumed from air and exposure to four gamma irradiation doses from 0 kGy up to 150 kGy as...
