  • Evaluation of the role of carbon nanotubes on the electrical properties of poly(butylene terephthalate) nanocomposites for industrial applications 2019

    Dorigato, A.; Freitas, V.; Covas, J. A.; Paiva, M. C.; Brugnara, M.; Pegoretti, A., "Evaluation of the role of carbon nanotubes on the electrical properties of poly(butylene terephthalate) nanocomposites for industrial applications" in THE JOURNAL OF ELASTOMERS AND PLASTICS, v. 51, n. 1 (2019), p. 3-25. - DOI: 10.1177/0095244318768634

    In this article, innovative electrically conductive polymer nanocomposites based on poly(butylene terephthalate) (PBT) filled with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) at different concentrations, to be used in the automotive field, have been investigated. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) analysis revealed how a good nanofiller dispersion was obtained, especially by using surface treated nanotubes and by processing these materials using a more restrictive screw configuration. Melt flow index measurements highlighted that the processability of these nanocomposites was reduced at elevated filler amounts, even if CNT surface treatment promoted a partial retention of the fluidity of the neat PBT. Thermal degradation stability was improved upon the addition of CNT, even at limited filler amounts. Differential scanning calorimetry measurements evidenced how the presence of CNT slightly increased both the crystallization temperature and the crystalline fraction of the materials. The additivation of CNTs promoted a stiffening effect at elevated CNT contents, associated to an evident embrittlement of the samples. Electrical resistivity measurements showed that the most interesting results (i.e. 2.6 × 101 Ω·cm) were obtained for nanocomposites with a total filler content of 3 wt%, processed using the more restrictive screw configuration. For these materials, it was possible to obtain a rapid surface heating through Joule effect at applied voltages of 12 V.

  • Application of the thermal energy storage concept to novel epoxy–short carbon fiber composites 2019

    Dorigato, A.; Fredi, G.; Pegoretti, A., "Application of the thermal energy storage concept to novel epoxy–short carbon fiber composites" in JOURNAL OF APPLIED POLYMER SCIENCE, v. 136, n. 21 (2019), p. 47434. - URL: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)1097-4628 . - DOI: 10.1002/app.47434

    For the first time, multifunctional epoxy-short carbon fiber reinforced composites suitable for thermal energy storage technology were developed. Paraffin microcapsules (MC) and short carbon fibers (CFs) were added at different relative amounts to an epoxy matrix, and the microstructural and thermomechanical properties of the resulting materials were investigated. Scanning electron microscopy images of the composites showed a uniform distribution of the capsules within the matrix, with a rather good interfacial adhesion, while the increase in the polymer viscosity at elevated CF and MC amounts caused an increase in the void content. Differential scanning calorimetry tests revealed that melting enthalpy values (up to 60 J/g) can be obtained at high MC concentrations. The mixing and thermal curing of the composites did not lead to breakage of the capsules and to the consequent leakage of the paraffin out of the epoxy matrix. The thermal stability of the prepared composites is not negatively affected by the MC addition, and the temperatures at which the thermal degradation process begins were far above the curing or service temperature of the composites. Flexural and impact tests highlighted that the presence of MC reduces the mechanical properties of the samples, while CF positively contributes to retaining the original stiffness and mechanical resistance.
