Synthesis and Application of Jatropha Oil based Polyurethane as Paint Coating Material

Recently, the use of renewable sources in the preparation of various industrial materials has been revitalized in response to environmental concerns. Natural oils are considered to be the most important genre of renewable sources. Jatropha curcas oil (JPO) based polyol is an alternative material that may possibly replace petrochemical-based polyol...

Newly Developed Epoxy-Polyol and Epoxy-Polyurethane From Renewable Resources

Bio-polyols are important component in polyurethane industries. The preliminary studies into the synthesis of bio-polyol products (epoxy-polyol and epoxyl-polyurethanes) from Jatropha curcas were investigated. The reactions were followed by both Infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance. Infrared analysis was performed on a Nicolet 380...

Effect of Different Nanoparticles on Mechanical Properties and Curing Behavior of Thermoset...

Three different kinds of nanoparticles (nano-Al2O3, nano-SiO2, and nano-CaCO3) were incorporated into a thermoset polyurethane adhesive. The influence of the type of nanoparticle and concentration on nanoadhesives mechanical, rheological properties, and dispersion degree was analyzed. It was found that as nanoparticle concentration increases...

Bending Characteristic of Polyurethane Soft Actuator: Dependence on Film Thickness

A polyurethane elastomer film that bends by an applied voltage attracts much attention in the hope of the application to robotic hands. In order to investigate the relationship between the bending degree and the electric field across the film, we have performed bending experiments about three kinds of thickness of 100, 200 and 400 μm. We found...

In an effort to increase road vehicles' structural strength, cellular materials, such as foam, have been utilised and installed in vital parts of the vehicle. The limited structural crush zones in side-impact collisions, when compared to frontal impacts, have shown to cause higher deformation to the passenger compartments that will lead to severe...
