Abstract

The aim of the study was to define the composition and methodology for manufacturing laminated composites of polypropylene and continuous fiber reinforcement. These composites are designed with the aim of being integrated into high mechanical performance lightweight parts obtained [...]

Abstract

The use of different stereospecific metallocene catalysts: isotactic (iPP, C2-symmetry) and syndiotactic (sPP, [...]

Abstract

Due to the rapid growth in the use of composite materials, environmental concerns have become an increasingly influential topic, making recyclability of composite materials a key issue. Furthermore, several related European laws have been passed to minimize the environmental impact [...]

Abstract

Modification of polymer matrices has a great insterest in the field of new materials, based on the possibilities offered by the additivation, being able to modulate the properties of the base material depending on the incorporated aggregates. Among the improvements searched include [...]

Abstract

Polymer-based multifunctional materials reinforced with graphene represent a step forward due to the combination of good structural properties with others of different nature such us electrical conductivity. These new systems are good candidates for applications in the transportation [...]

Abstract

The family of polyolefins are materials with a high demand, due to thermoplastics are structurally simpler and economical in their production and processing. Within the polyolefins, the commercial use of polypropylene began with the rise of the catalyzed reactions, in this way [...]
