Performance characteristics of polylactide-talc composites

The influence of the filler - talc, its content, additional heat treatment and temperature on the physical-mechanical and thermophysical properties of polylactide materials, in particular on the surface hardness, heat resistance according to Vick and thermomechanical characteristics has been studied. The influence of filler and temperature on the resistance of polylactide materials to the action of the aqueous medium is revealed. The diffusion coefficient of water in polylactide materials and the activation energy of the diffusion process were determined.

UV Curable Heat Resistant Epoxy Acrylate Coatings

Polymeric materials are exposed to high temperatures that results in lowering of the film integrity. A blend of an epoxy resin with the silicone acrylate resin was developed to provide high heat resistance UV cured coatings. Earlier siliconized epoxy coatings had been developed by conventional curing. But due to environmental awareness, high productivity rate, low process costs and energy saving UV curable coatings are enjoying considerable growth.
