Abstract

▶ PP nanocomposite (no strain hardening) resulted in foams with av. cell size of 132.7μm and cell density of 0.6×10 6 cells/cc compared to open cell foam of neat PP displaying the importance of nucleating sites for bubbles. ▶ Average cell size dropped by 35% and cell density increased by 116% when the strain hardening PP nanocomposite was foamed compared to PP nanocomposite that shows no strain hardening. ▶ Average cell size dropped by 22% and cell density increased by 500% when PP nanocomposite with slower rate of crystallization was foamed compared to PP nanocomposite having faster rate of crystallization.
