  • Polyethylene-based single polymer laminates: Synergistic effects of nanosilica and metal hydroxides 2019

    Dorigato, Andrea; Fredi, Giulia; Fambri, Luca; Lopez Cuesta, Jose Marie; Pegoretti, Alessandro, "Polyethylene-based single polymer laminates: Synergistic effects of nanosilica and metal hydroxides" in JOURNAL OF REINFORCED PLASTICS AND COMPOSITES, v. 38, n. 2 (2019), p. 62-73. - URL: http://jrp.sagepub.com/content/by/year . - DOI: 10.1177/0731684418802974

    This work aims to investigate the fire performance of novel polyethylene-based single polymer composites. Fumed silicananoparticles and magnesium hydroxide microfiller were added at an optimized concentration to a linear low-densitypolyethylene matrix, which was then reinforced with ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers. Through theoptimization of the production process, it was possible to limit the porosity inside the single polymer composites,thus retaining the pristine mechanical properties of the fibers. The addition of SiO2 and magnesium hydroxide determinedan increase in the elastic modulus in both the longitudinal and transversal direction, but it concurrently led to areduction in ductility, especially in the transversal direction. The fillers were proved to bring interesting improvements ofthe thermal degradation resistance and of the flame behaviour. Thermogravimetric analysis tests highlighted an increasein the onset degradation temperature and in the temperature associated to the maximum degradation rate. Moreover,both the oxidation onset temperature and limiting oxygen index were considerably improved. Cone calorimetry testsevidenced that filled single polymer composites were characterized by lower peak heat release rate and total heatreleased with respect to neat single polymer composites.

  • Thermo-mechanical and adhesive properties of polymeric films based on ZnAl-hydrotalcite composites for active wound dressings 2019

    Perioli, Luana; Dorigato, Andrea; Pagano, Cinzia; Leoni, Matteo; Pegoretti, Alessandro, "Thermo-mechanical and adhesive properties of polymeric films based on ZnAl-hydrotalcite composites for active wound dressings" in POLYMER ENGINEERING AND SCIENCE, v. 59, n. S1 (2019), p. E112-E119. - URL: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)1548-2634 . - DOI: 10.1002/pen.24877

    Composite films based on sodium carboxymethyl cellulose(Na-CMC) loaded with a ZnAl(OH)2CO3yH2O hydrotalcite(ZnAl-HTlc), were developed and characterized. Thecomposites were mechanically more stable than thematrix alone: the noticeable enhancement of elastic modulus,creep resistance and failure properties, all proportionalto the filler content, came at the expenses of acertain embrittlement. The filler tended to aggregate inthe composites and the size of the aggregates increasedwith ZnAl-HTlc amount. Contact angle measurementshighlighted how ZnAl-HTlc introduction in the polymericmatrix could strongly modify the wettability conditions ofthe films increasing their hydrophilicity. Bioadhesion testsshowed that the adhesion behavior of the compositesdecreased as ZnAl-HTlc amount increases, testifying theinfluence of the filler on the ability of the film to bind skinsurface. Therefore, the developed films may find applicationas active wound dressings since ZnAl-HTlc can beeasily intercalated with an active pharmaceutical ingredientto be progressively released on the wound.
