Poly(Vinyl Chloride)-Polystyrene Materials with Polymer-Silicate Fillers

The features of obtaining and modifying Ba- and Zn-containing polymer-silicate fillers have been researched. The influence of polystyrene modifiers (suspension and impact-resistant polystyrene) and finely dispersed Ba- and Zn-containing polymer-silicate fillers on the gelation process, view of flow curves, rheological properties: flow index, flow limit, thermal stability, surface hardness and elasticity of plasticized poly(vinyl chloride) have been discovered.

Influence of Initiators on the Adhesion Properties of Bitumen Modified by Natural Origin Epoxide

The article is presenting a modification of bituminous binder with ecological epoxidized rapeseed oil (BERO) in the presence of the initiator (hardener). Adipic acid (AA), maleic anhydride (MA) and polyethylene polyamine (PEPA) were used as the initiators. The effect of modification temperature and, as well as initiator nature, on the bitumen properties was determined. Bitumen modified with BERO was evaluated by the following indicators: softening temperature, penetration, ductility, and adhesion to the glass.


The technology for producing montmorillonite modified with polyionenes has been developed. It was shown that macromolecular polymer intercalation of the quaternary ammonium salt of montmorillonite intercrystalline space is accompanied by an increase in interlayer distances from 1.08 to 1.67 nm. A method for the synthesis of montmorillonite modified with polyionenes is proposed.

Research of the influence of modified polyethyleneaminoguanidine derivatives on composites properties on polypropylene based

 The properties of the filled polymer compositions largely depend on the nature and surface properties of the fillers- basalt fiber. The possibility of modifying the surface of the basalt fiber with commercial polyhexamethyleneguanidinehydrochloride and non-commercial polydiethyleneaminoguanidine - appretes, were demonstrated for the first time.

Іnfluence of acoustic radiation of ultrasonic range on modification of natural clinoptilolite by ions of argentums

It was found that under the action of acoustic vibrations of the ultrasonic (US) range, the rate of sorption of Argentum ions and the static capacity of clinoptilolite are much higher than for the original natural zeolite. Pre-activation of the zeolite at 350 °С allows to increase the content of Argentum ions.An increase in both the power of the US-radiation and the modification temperature makes it possible to increase the static capacity of the zeolite.It is shown that the process of modification of clinoptilolite occurs mainly in the transition region.


Today there is a problem of rational use of coal coking by-products, which can be partially solved by obtaining a variety of polymeric materials on their basis. The presence of valuable reactive substances (indene, coumarone, styrene, etc.) in this type of raw materials contributes to the solving of the problem. An important aspect is the area of application of the resulting polymers.

Rheological properties of melts and x-ray method of study of cross-linked polyethylene

In the paper, the X-ray study of cross-linked polyethylene with isopropenyl styrene or acrylonitrile was carried out. It is shown that cross-linking leads to a significant decrease in the area of the exothermic peak, an increase in the resistance of the structured system to thermal oxidation. These data confirm that the increase in resistance to thermal aging of polyethylene cross-linked with acrylonitrile or isopropenyl styrene fraction.

Modification of the Impregnating Pitch by Phenolic Fraction of Coal Tar

The paper presents the investigation results of the organic mass modification of the impregnating pitch of coal tar with low pyrolysis degree. The processes that form the pitch operational properties in the impregnation technology of graphitized electrodes were studied. Specific features of the modifying additive effect on the quality characteristics of the pitch and its group composition were established. Such technological approach makes it possible to intensify the impregnation process of blanks for graphitized electrodes.

The Role of Polyvinylpyrrolidone in the Formation of Nanocomposites Based on a Compatible Polycaproamide and Polypropylene

The interrelation of physico-mechanical and technological characteristics of newly created nanocomposites on the basis of polypropylene (PP)/polyamide (PA-6) mixture with PVP-modified montmorillonite has been investigated. The significant impact of modified polyamide on technological, physical and mechanical properties and heat resistance of polypropylene has been determined. It has been established that the melt flow index of the resulting composites increases by more than 2 times, compared with pure PP.
