  • Case study of water vapour transmission properties of EPDM façade membranes

    This research aimed to investigate the water vapour transmission properties of chosen EPDM membranes applied in façade and window systems under laboratory tests. The applied procedure included in national and international standards utilized for the laboratory tests of water vapour transmission properties of EPDM membrane is described. Two main types (outside and inside types) of EPDM membranes are laboratory tested. The authors...

    - POLYMER DEGRADATION AND STABILITY - Year 2021

    Ethylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM) is a elastomer widely used in common industrial applications. EPDM can be shaped into sheets and employed as isolating material for roofing systems. In this study, scraps of EPDM from commercial, industrial and residential roofing systems were treated by combined thermo-mechanical and microwave devulcanization processes including peroxide of benzoyl (BPO). The devulcanized EPDM (Dev-EPDM)...

    - Express Polymer Letters - Year 2022

    Novel materials with neutron shielding property were fabricated by incorporating boron compounds into highdensity polyethylene (HDPE)/Ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber (EPDM) blends. A detailed investigation on the morphological, thermal, mechanical, and neutron attenuation properties of suitable proportion of HDPE/EPDM blend with boric acid (BA), boron carbide (BC), and nano boron carbide (NBC) were performed. Morphology...

    - Materials - Year 2021

    Due to growing restrictions on the use of halogenated flame retardant compounds, there is great research interest in the development of fillers that do not emit toxic compounds during thermal decomposition. Polymeric composite materials with reduced flammability are increasingly in demand. Here, we demonstrate that unmodified graphene and carbon nanotubes as well as basalt fibers or flakes can act as effective flame retardants...

  • Zastosowanie analizy wielokryterialnej do oceny i wyboru rozwiązania pokrycia dachowego

    Publication

    Celem artykułu jest wskazanie optymalnego rozwiązania materiałowego do wykonania pokrycia dachowego w budynku biurowym. Wykorzystując wywiady z ekspertami oraz badania ankietowe, dokonano oceny trzech wariantów materiałowych. W badaniu zastosowano analizę wielokryterialną MCE z uwzględnieniem jedenastu kryteriów oceny. Badania wskazały, iż najkorzystniejszym rozwiązaniem jest zastosowanie membrany EPDM. Pomimo największych nakładów...

    - Year 2018

    This chapter deals with the study of different approaches to improve the compatibility of waste rubber with polymeric matrixes of high density polyethylene (HDPE) by using surface treatments to increase adhesion. Different surface treatments such as etching with sulphuric and nitric acids, the use of a silane as a coupling agent and chlorination with trichloroisocyanuric acid (TCI) have been applied. The modification of waste rubber...
