Thermally Conductive Modified Polymers - Part 1: experimental analysis and modelling description of a process dependent part property
Adding thermal conductive fillers to polymers the thermal conductivity can be raised significantly. Using non-isometric fillers leads to the highest thermal conductivities. The correlation of anisotropic mechanical properties and fiber orientation in the injection molding process is well investigated. Additionally it is shown if processing of polymers filled with thermal conductive, platelet-shaped fillers leads to a comparable filler orientation and layer distribution, and to what extent thermal properties in parts are influenced. By modifying an analytical model for predicting the thermal conductivity of multiphase materials a quantitative effect analysis is shown.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
