    Scale effect of the tensile strength of flax-fabric-reinforced polymer composites2011In: Journal of reinforced plastics and composites (Print), ISSN 0731-6844, E-ISSN 1530-7964, Vol. 30, no 23, p. 1969-1974Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The development of UD natural fiber composites, considered for application as structural materials, necessitates evaluation of the scale effect of their strength. Alignment of the fibers in flax bast fiber composites can be achieved by employing textile reinforcement, such as yarns and fabrics. Cutting specimens for mechanical tests out of such textile-reinforced composite plates results in a complex non-uniform reinforcement structure at their edges, which may affect the strength of specimens. Scale effect of the tensile strength in the fiber direction of flax-fabric-reinforced composites is studied in the current work. A model accounting for both volume and edge effect of the specimens on their tensile strength is proposed. © The Author(s) 2011.

    Development of polyethylene/nanoclay masterbatch for use in wood-plastic composites2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this work, organoclay reinforced high density polyethylene (HDPE) nanocomposites were prepared at laboratory scale using a batch mixer. Processing conditions, maleic anhydride modified polyethylene (MAPE) type and MAPE/clay weight ratio were optimised. The microstructure of the resultant nanocomposites was analysed by X-ray diffraction and melt rheology tests, and flexural properties and thermal stability were evaluated. Three types of MAPEs with different melt flow indices (MFI) and maleic anhydride contents all improved the interaction between HDPE and clay and promoted clay dispersion. Nanocomposites where the MAPE with MFI most similar to HDPE was used showed the best exfoliation of clay and the strongest HDPE/clay interface. Mechanical properties were slightly improved, while thermal stability was distinctly enhanced in these HDPE nanocomposites compared with neat HDPE and HDPE nanocomposite without MAPE. The prepared HDPE nanocomposites show the potential to improve the thermal stability of wood-plastic composites for structural applications. © 2013 Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.

    Enhanced thermal stability and flame retarding properties of recycled polyethylene based wood composites via addition of polyethylene/nanoclay masterbatch2013In: Plastics, rubber and composites, ISSN 1465-8011, E-ISSN 1743-2898, Vol. 42, no 6, p. 244-255Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Barrier and mechanical properties of wood powder composites based on recycled polyethylene (RPE) were modified using a commercial nanoclay masterbatch. X-ray diffraction, dynamic rheology and thermogravimetric analysis measurements showed that nanoclay from the selected masterbatch was well dispersed and formed a percolation network in both virgin and RPEs. The resulting nanocomposites promoted the thermal stability of matrix significantly. Modification efficiency of nanoclay, however, was evidently influenced by the type of matrix, where the strongest effect was achieved in a low viscosity virgin high density PE. The masterbatch was incorporated into an industrial formula designed extrusion quality RPE/wood flour composite. Processing procedures, mainly compounding cycles, and material composition, mainly clay content and type of coupling agent, were optimised. Two extrusion cycles led to higher uniformity of resulting composites than one cycle. Addition of a coupling agent, which has medium viscosity and plenty functional groups, led to enhanced tensile strength. The twice compounded composites were well stiffened and strengthened via combination of 6 wt-% clay and medium viscosity coupling agent. All composites without the addition of nanoclay burned faster after ignition and dripped much earlier and more compared to the composites containing nanoclay even with as small amount as 3 wt-% and being compounded once. The material with 6 wt-% clay showed the best sample integrity and burned slowest of all the tested composites. Furthermore, no dripping during combustion was seen for this material. This study shows that the incorporation of nanoclay using the selected masterbatch can effectively improve the flame retarding properties of RPE based wood composites. © Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining 2013.

    Development of electrophoretic deposition prototype for continuous production of carbon nanotube-modified carbon fiber fabrics used in high-performance multifunctional composites2018In: Fibers, ISSN 2079-6439, Vol. 6, no 4, article id 71Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An electrophoretic deposition (EPD) prototype was developed aiming at the continuous production of carbon nanotube (CNT) deposited carbon fiber fabric. Such multi-scale reinforcement was used to manufacture carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites. The overall objective was to improve the mechanical performance and functionalities of CFRP composites. In the current study, the design concept and practical limit of the continuous EPD prototype, as well as the flexural strength and interlaminar shear strength, were the focus. Initial mechanical tests showed that the flexural stiffness and strength of composites with the developed reinforcement were significantly reduced with respect to the composites with pristine reinforcement. However, optical microscopy study revealed that geometrical imperfections, such as waviness and misalignment, had been introduced into the reinforcement fibers and/or bundles when being pulled through the EPD bath, collected on a roll, and dried. These defects are likely to partly or completely shadow any enhancement of the mechanical properties due to the CNT deposit. In order to eliminate the effect of the discovered defects, the pristine reinforcement was subjected to the same EPD treatment, but without the addition of CNT in the EPD bath. When compared with such water-treated reinforcement, the CNT-deposited reinforcement clearly showed a positive effect on the flexural properties and interlaminar shear strength of the composites. It was also discovered that CNTs agglomerate with time under the electric field due to the change of ionic density, which is possibly due to the electrolysis of water (for carboxylated CNT aqueous suspension without surfactant) or the deposition of ionic surfactant along with CNT deposition (for non-functionalized CNT aqueous suspension with surfactant). Currently, this sets time limits for the continuous deposition.

    SCALING-UP PRODUCTION OF CNT-COATEDFIBRE REINFORCEMENT USING CONTINUOUS EPDFOR HIGH-PERFORMANCE ANDMULTIFUNCTIONAL COMPOSITES2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Itis important within the composite community to improve out-of-plane performance ofcomposites dominated by polymer matrix and properties of matrix-rich regions formed in the gapsbetween the interlaced fibre bundles. These properties are difficult to modify with traditional fibrereinforcement. Various nanoscale materials have been explored for such purpose, among which carbonnanotube (CNT) has been suggested as an ideal candidate because of its outstanding mechanical,electrical and thermal properties (1). Electrophoretic deposition (EPD) is considered as a cost-effectivemethod to deposit CNTs onto substrates with mild working conditions, requiring relatively simpleequipment and being amenable to scaling up (2,3). Due to the shortcoming of existing laboratory setupwhich corresponds to a non-continuous process, EPD has not been used at even a pilot plant scale fornano-coated fibre reinforcement. The current work presents the development of a prototype andmethod for continuous EPD process. Geometric defect of fibre reinforcement introduced during thedeposition, which can shadow the reinforcing effect of CNT deposit, was discovered. Enhancement ofcomposite properties by the CNT deposit was hence shown.

    Service life assessment and moisture influence on bio-based thermosetting resins2014In: Journal of Materials Science, ISSN 0022-2461, E-ISSN 1573-4803, Vol. 49, no 10, p. 3687-3693Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, three different types of bio-based resins are compared to a conventional oil-based epoxy in terms of moisture uptake, long-term properties and its influence of moisture and glass transition temperature, T g. Moisture uptake is determined by means of gravimetric method, time temperature superposition (TTSP), and T g data obtained in dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA). Moisture uptake show Fickian diffuison behavour for all resins, saturation level and diffusion coefficient however differ. The long-term properties is characterised by creep compliance master curves created by means of TTSP. The examined bio-based resins are compatible to the reference epoxy in term of stability up to 3-10 years. Comparison between master curves for virgin, wet, and dried material show that moisture present in the specimen increases creep rate, and that some of this increase remains after drying of samples. T g measurements show that moisture inside the specimen decreases T g; this is anticipated because of the plasticizing effect of water. The overall conclusions are that the bio-based resins of polyester, and epoxy type are comparable in performance with oil-based epoxy, LY556 and they can be used to develop high-performance composites. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

    Abstract [en]

    A race towards a more sustainable society is going on worldwide, and decreasing dependence on fossil resources in energy and transport sectors are main goals. One path to decreased oil usage is development of lightweight materials from renewable resources like bio-based composites. However, these new bio-based materials not only have to compete in mechanical performance but also have to restrain environmental loads like moisture and temperature over time. In this study, two bio-based composites have been compared to an oil-based composite in terms of long-term properties and water absorption behaviour. The long-term behaviour is determined by dynamic mechanical thermal analysis, DMTA and time temperature superposition, TTSP. The water uptake is determined by submersion of specimens into water and tracking their weight change over time. The moisture influence is characterised in form of water uptake and change in the master curves created by TTSP procedure. The results show that there is a significant difference in long-term performance between the bio-based and oil-based composites. It is realised that the bio-based composites can be a good alternative for some applications especially when taking their eco-friendly nature into account. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

    Microstructure and strength of injection molded natural fiber composites2007In: Journal of reinforced plastics and composites (Print), ISSN 0731-6844, E-ISSN 1530-7964, Vol. 26, no 6, p. 579-599Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Injection molded short natural fiber composites (NFC) are studied in this article. Micromechanical models are employed to investigate effects of fiber length distribution, fiber orientation, and fiber/matrix adhesion on mechanical performance of NFCs. A parametric study showed that length/diameter ratio strongly affects the composite strength, whereas fiber strength has very little influence on strength of the composites when fiber/matrix adhesion is poor. In order to verify conclusions based on theoretical predictions, modeling results are compared with experimental results of wood powder-, flax-, pulp-, and glass fiber composites. Recommendations on improvement of strength of NFC through change of the internal structure of the materials are formulated based on results of this investigation. © 2007 SAGE Publications.

    The influence of fibre microstructure on fibre breakage and mechanical properties of natural fibre reinforced polypropylene2009In: Composites Science And Technology, ISSN 0266-3538, E-ISSN 1879-1050, Vol. 69, p. 1847-1853Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of fibre morphology of different natural fibres on the composites mechanical properties and on the fibre breakage due to extrusion process. The composite materials were manufactured using LTF (long fibre thermoplastic) extrusion and compression moulding and the used fibres were sisal, banana, jute and flax, and the matrix was a polypropylene. The results showed that sisal composites had the best impact properties and the longest fibres after the extrusion. Generally, the composites flexural stiffness was increased with increased fibre content for all fibres, being highest for flax composites. The flexural strength was not affected by the addition of fibres because of the low compatibility. The addition of 2 wt.% maleated polypropylene significantly improved the composites properties. Unlike the other three fibres, flax fibres were separated into individual elementary fibres during the process due to enzymatic retting and low lignin content. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.

    Development of constitutive model for composites exhibiting time dependent properties2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Regenerated cellulose fibres and their composites exhibit highly nonlinear behaviour. The mechanical response of these materials can be successfully described by the model developed by Schapery for time-dependent materials. However, this model requires input parameters that are experimentally determined via large number of time-consuming tests on the studied composite material. If, for example, the volume fraction of fibres is changed we have a different material and new series of experiments on this new material are required. Therefore the ultimate objective of our studies is to develop model which determines the composite behaviour based on behaviour of constituents of the composite. This paper gives an overview of problems and difficulties, associated with development, implementation and verification of such model.

    Micromorphology, moisture sorption and mechanical properties of a biocomposite based on acetylated wood particles and cellulose ester2007In: Wood Material Science & Engineering, ISSN 1748-0272, E-ISSN 1748-0280, Vol. 2, p. 106-117Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the major issues in a long-term perspective for the use of wood-plastic composites (WPCs) in outdoor applications is the moisture sensitivity of the wood component and the consequent dimensional instability and susceptibility to biological degradation of the composite. In this work, the effects of using an acetylated wood component and a cellulose ester as matrix on the micromorphology, mechanical performance and moisture uptake of injection-moulded WPCs have been studied. Composites based on unmodified and acetylated wood particles, specially designed with a length-to-width ratio of about 5-7, combined with both cellulose acetate propionate (CAP) and polypropylene (PP) matrices were studied. The size and shape of the wood particles were studied before and after the processing using light microscopy, and the micromorphology of the composites was studied using a newly developed surface preparation technique based on ultraviolet laser irradiation combined with low-vacuum scanning electron microscopy (LV-SEM). The water vapour sorption in the composites and the effect of accelerated weathering were measured using thin samples which were allowed to reach equilibrium moisture content (EMC). The length-to-diameter ratio was only slightly decreased for the acetylated particles after compounding and injection moulding, although both the unmodified and the acetylated particles were smaller in size after the processing steps. The tensile strength was about 40% higher for the composite based on acetylated wood than for the composite with unmodified wood using either CAP or PP as matrix, whereas the notched impact strength of the composite based on acetylated wood was about 20% lower than those of the corresponding unmodified composites. The sorption experiments showed that the EMC was 50% lower in the composites with an acetylated wood component than in the composites with an unmodified wood component. The choice of matrix material strongly affected the moisture absorptivity of the WPC. The composites with CAP as matrix gained moisture more rapidly than the composites with PP as matrix. It was also found that accelerated ageing in a Weather-Ometer® significantly increased the moisture sensitivity of the PP-based composites.

    Interfacial shear strength of flax fibers in thermoset resins evaluated via tensile tests of UD composites2012In: International Journal of Adhesion and Adhesives, ISSN 0143-7496, E-ISSN 1879-0127, Vol. 36, p. 39-43Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A method of interfacial shear strength evaluation, based on the length distribution of fibers pulled out from the tensile fracture surface of an oriented flax-reinforced composite, is applied to composites with vinyl ester and acrylated epoxidized soy oil resin matrices. Two approaches for characterizing the strength of fibers with modified Weibull distribution, fiber fragmentation tests and fiber tension tests, are compared in the analysis of pull-out data. Interfacial shear strength is found to increase by a few percent when loading rate is increased from 1.33% to 8%/min. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
