  • Polypropylene foams: production, structure and properties 

    Sousa Pais Antunes, Marcelo de; Velasco Perero, José Ignacio; Redondo Realinho, Vera Cristina de (Nova Science Publishers, 2011-11-01)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    It is well known the relevance given to the study of heat transfer in polymer foams, as one of the main applications is as lightweight thermal insulating elements. Alongside some of the possible strategies for improving ...
  • Application of layered nanoparticles in the micromechanical reinforcement and flame retardancy of polymer foams 

    Redondo Realinho, Vera Cristina de; Sousa Pais Antunes, Marcelo de; Velasco Perero, José Ignacio (Studium Press LLC, 2013)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A great deal of attention has been given in the last years to the study of the influence of incorporating nanosized particles and particularly nanoparticles with a flat-like morphology such as nanoclays or layered double ...
  • Polymer/clay aerogel composites with flame retardant agents: mechanical, thermal and fire behavior 

    Wang, Liang; Sánchez Soto, Miguel; Maspoch Rulduà, Mª Lluïsa (2013-12)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Aerogel is a class of material characterized by its high void content and extreme lightness. Different polymer/clay aerogels have been prepared by a simply freeze–thaw process from a suspension with poly(vinyl alcohol) ...
