    • Assessment of microstructure, physical and thermal properties of bitumen modified with LDPE/GTR/elastomer ternary blends 

      Formela, Krzysztof; Sulkowski, Michal; Reza Saeb, Mohammad; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Haponiuk, Josef T (2016-03-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      LDPE/GTR/elastomer ternary blends with variable LDPE/GTR ratio and constant elastomer content were prepared via melt-compounding. Obtained LDPE/GTR/elastomer blends were applied as thermoplastic modifiers into bitumen. ...

      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      As a consequence of massive production and consumption of rubbers, rubber blends, and rubber composites for myriad applications, elastomeric products have enormously accumulated and become an environmental threat. The ...
    • Investigating the impact of curing system on structure-property relationship of natural rubber modified with brewery by-product and ground tire rubber 

      Zedler, Lukasz; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Cañavate Ávila, Francisco Javier; Saeb, Mohammad Reza; Haponiuk, Josef T; Formela, Krzysztof (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-03-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      The application of wastes as a filler/reinforcement phase in polymers is a new strategy to modify the performance properties and reduce the price of biocomposites. The use of these fillers, coming from agricultural waste ...
