Synthesising polythioether and heat resistance of polythioether sealants

Polythioether sealants are considered as new generational aeronautical sealants.First, by changing molecular structure, the feasibility of forming certain molecular weight of polythioethers was studied. Experiment show that most terminal dienes can react with dithiol generating certain molecular polythioethers. Then, analysis show that the linear...

Flexible Aerogels from Hyperbranched Polyurethanes: Probing the Role of Molecular Rigidity with...

Flexible and foldable aerogels have commercial value for applications in thermal insulation. This study investigates the molecular connection of macroscopic flexibility using polymeric aerogels based on star-shaped polyurethane-acrylate versus urethane-norbornene monomers. The core of those monomers is based either on a rigid/aromatic, or a...

Multiblock copolymers composed of crystallizable poly(ω-pentadecalactone) (PPDL) and poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) segments, which are linked via an aliphatic urethane unit, named PDLCL, have been recently introduced as temperature-memory materials. In this work, we studied the effect of different PCL weight content on the crystallization...

WEAR TESTING
Abrasive wear of selected plastics in solvent/corundum suspensions

A screening program to investigate the stability of plastics against wet abrasion was conducted. Plastic discs were spun in solvent/corundum suspensions at high speed and their wear was determined. Nine different plastics were investigated in water/corundum suspensions, and the three most stable were chosen for further studies in other liquids....
