It is necessary to know the amount of species when grafted copolymers are prepared. Sarraf et al.61 and Serdani et al.34 have set up a method which allows one to follow the amount of free radicals formed as a function of time. The amount of peroxides and hydroperoxides, Nt, in the PE and PVDF samples, kept at a given temperature, was titrated by colorimetry using DPPH as a function of time. Without distinction between the two species, they deduced the amounts of non-decomposed peroxides or...

ease of handling and installing compatibility with existing complete fittings programs ease of cutting and of connecting to existing pipe systems flexibility in the number and locations of connections to houses. In this paper, we have shown that recycled PVC bottles can be processed to form a foamed layer of coextruded light-weight pipes. Properties of the pipes produced with recycled PVC are at least as good as those achieved when foamed layer consists of virgin PVC. The pipes with recycled...

Dipartimento di Ingegneria Chimica dei Processi e dei Materiali, Universita di Palermo, Viale delle Scienze, 90128 Palermo, Italy Mechanical properties of secondary plastic materials obtained by recycling of post-consumer plastic containers for liquids are very poor. This is due to the incompatibility between component polymers PET, PVC, and PE and degradation of components during the heterogeneous reprocessing. The use of different classes of additives, such as stabilizers, inert fillers,...

Heterogeneous Homogeneous Mixtures

Dipartimento di Ingegneria Chimica dei Processi e dei Materiali, Universita di Palermo, Viale delle Scienze, 90128 Palermo, Italy The main problems in post-consumer plastics recycling are due to the degradation of polymers during processing steps and during lifetime. In the recycling of heterogeneous waste, the incompatibility among the different phases also poses substantial difficulty. The influence of both degradation and incompatibility on the structure and on the properties of the recycled...

VEKAAG, Postfach 1262, Sendenhorst, Germany Three basic materials are used for window frames wood, aluminum, and PVC. For approximately 30 years window frames of PVC have been used in Germany. Even if the products of the first generation were not absolutely perfect, PVC windows have still achieved a substantial percentage in the marketplace because of their advantages they are long-lasting, have low maintenance requirements, and use only small amounts of material. In Germany, they have a market...

Degradation Pvc

ChemTec Laboratories, 38 Earswick Dr., Toronto, Ontario MIE 1C6, Canada Several decades of UV degradation studies gave sufficient evidence to make the following statements all polymers degrade when exposed to UV light products of thermal degradation typically accelerate UV degradation.1 From these two statements, it is obvious that strategy of recycling must consider material durability as very important factor. Recycling would still be a relatively simple process if materials for recycling...

Deutsches Kunststoff-Institut, Schlo gartenstra e 6, 64289 Darmstadt, Germany With a present world-wide annual production of approximately 19 million tones, poly vinyl chloride PVC is the second largest volume thermoplastic only to polyethylene as volume leader in the plastics industry.1 Its ability to be compounded with many additives to a wide range of flexible and rigid forms constitutes the major factor responsible for the versatility of PVC. Because of a low cost and the processability by...

Compatibilization of heterogeneous blends is thus a primary aim of the research on recycling. Blends...

Degradation Polymethylmethacrylat Co2

Aston University, Birmingham B4 7ET, UK PVC presents particular difficulties in disposal due to the potential environmental hazards associated with the chlorine content of the polymer. In principle materials recycling provides an ecologically acceptable way of re-utilising the energy content of the polymer but the processing operation is damaging to the durability of recycled artifacts unless the provenance of the waste is known. The principles involved in the protection of PVC against the...

Only the two last reactions lead to stable products. or a deactivation on the bitumen occurs with grafting of bituminous product onto the polymer backbone. The probability for the second hypothesis is higher because the reaction medium mainly contains bitumen and the Ro '99 free radicals have far more chances to deactivate on bitumen. Furthermore, molecules constituting the bitumen have low molecular weight lt 1500 , as verified by GPC analysis Table 9 . GPC data also indicate that the number...

Solvay Research amp Technology, Rue de Ransbeek 310, B-1120 Brussels, Belgium In our increasingly affluent society, concern for the environment as well as for the quality of life is growing. A fraction of the public opinion is not far from imagining that suppressing plastics would definitely solve the waste problem. There is no doubt that mankind has to care for the future of this, his foster earth, but this must be done scientifically and realistically, and not emotionally. Nevertheless, in...
