A surface treatment technology was developed for PP/mica composites that produces a diffuse interlayer with excellent adhesion between the components. The interlayer is created by the silane treatment of the filler and the chemical modification of the polymer components, and its polarity gradually decreases from the surface of the filler to the matrix. Properties of the composites depend on the characteristics of the interphase. With changing chemical composition, the characteristics of the interphas…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
