Abstract

One of the greatest barriers in transitioning new or altered polymers to commercial application is the cost of new equipment for processing or the cost of developing parameters for the new material. One solution is developing "drop-in" modifiers that alter the properties of presently used materials without altering the processing parameters or requiring exotic equipment. Over the last decade the Air Force Research Laboratory has studied how the Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxanes (POSS) can be incorporated as blendables in industrial polymers like polypropylene to improve properties without sacrificing the ease of processing. This talk will detail the processing method (drying, blending, extruding and molding) of Octamethyl POSS/ polypropylene nanocomposites. The degree of compatibility was established with visual methods.
