Assessment of extrusion-sonication process on flame retardant polypropylene by rheological characterization

Research paper, published: 25 May 2016

Abstract: In this work, the rheological behavior of flame retardant polypropylene composites produced by two methods: 1) twin-screw extrusion and 2) ultrasound application combined with a static mixer die single-screw extrusion is analyzed in detail; results are related to the morphology of the composites. The flame retardant polymer composites are composed of a polypropylene matrix, an intumescent flame retardant system and functionalized clay. Scanning electron microscopy revealed that the combination of the static mixer die and on-line sonication reduced particle size and
