Five PEBAX foams provided by Arkema and obtained by mold-opening foam injection process has been studied. One one side, the microstructures have been characterized by
Why are we playing with rubber bouncing balls when we are kids ? Can metal or ‘plastic’ balls bounce as well ? And why do squash players warm
In a previous post, I have presented some of our results obtained during stress-free shape memory recovery of amorphous polymer networks submitted to large deformation torsion
The shape memory property of amorphous polymer networks is the result of two intrinsic properties of these materials: 1) The viscoelasticity and 2) the
I started working on the shape memory property of polymers at CU Boulder thanks to Professor Ken Gall who introduced me to the topic.
The linear viscoelasticity of several carbon-black filled SBRs were characterized by DMA tests on a DMAQ800 dynamic uniaxial tension machine from TA. Figure 1. Storage
