  • Heat transfer in polyolefin foams 

    Sousa Pais Antunes, Marcelo de; Velasco Perero, José Ignacio; Solórzano Quijano, Eusebio; Rodríguez-Pérez, Miguel Ángel (Springer, 2011)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    This chapter is dedicated to the study of heat transfer in polyolefin-based foams, particularly thermal conductivity, as a function of their structure and chemical composition. A small review of the main experimental ...
  • Heat Transfer of Mineral-Filled Polypropylene Foams 

    Sousa Pais Antunes, Marcelo de; Redondo Realinho, Vera Cristina de; Martínez Benasat, Antonio; Solórzano Quijano, Eusebio; Rodríguez-Pérez, Miguel Ángel; Velasco Perero, José Ignacio (2010)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The thermal conductivity of unfilled polypropylene foams produced using different foaming processes has previously been demonstrated to be mainly affected by the foam’s bulk density [1]. The influence of adding inorganic ...
  • Optical expandometry: a technique to analyze the expansion kinetics of chemically blown thermoplastic foams 

    Solórzano Quijano, Eusebio; Sousa Pais Antunes, Marcelo de; Saiz-Arroyo, Cristina; Rodríguez-Pérez, Miguel Ángel; Velasco Perero, José Ignacio; Saja, José Antonio de (2012-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A novel technique to determine in situ the free expansion kinetics of chemically foamed thermoplastic foams, so-called optical expandometry, is presented in this work. This technique is based on the camera monitoring ...
  • Study of the cellular structure heterogeneity and anisotropy of polypropylene and polypropylene nanocomposite foams 

    Sousa Pais Antunes, Marcelo de; Velasco Perero, José Ignacio; Redondo Realinho, Vera Cristina de; Solórzano Quijano, Eusebio (2009)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This article presents the analysis of the processing parameters influence on the foaming behavior and cellular structure of PP-montmorillonite foams. Polypropylene nanocomposites containing 5.0 phr of an organically- modified ...
  • Thermal conductivity anisotropy in polypropylene foams prepared by supercritical CO2 dissolution 

    Sousa Pais Antunes, Marcelo de; Redondo Realinho, Vera Cristina de; Velasco Perero, José Ignacio; Solórzano Quijano, Eusebio; Rodríguez-Pérez, Miguel Ángel; Saja, José Antonio de (2012-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Different relative density polypropylene foams were prepared by means of two foaming processes: chemical foaming by compression moulding and physical foaming by high pressure CO2 dissolution. By controlling the foaming ...
  • Thermal Conductivity of Carbon Nanofibre-Polypropylene Composite Foams 

    Sousa Pais Antunes, Marcelo de; Redondo Realinho, Vera Cristina de; Solórzano Quijano, Eusebio; Rodríguez-Pérez, Miguel Ángel; Saja, José Antonio de; Velasco Perero, José Ignacio (2010)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Carbon nanofibre-reinforced polypropylene nanocomposites containing from 5 to 20 wt.% of carbon nanofibres and a chemical blowing agent were melt-compounded and later foamed using compression-moulding. Alongside their ...
