Preparation and characterization of polymer blends based on the wastes from automotive coverings (in English)
Polimery 2020, No 3, 232
This paper presents the results of the mechanical recycling of post-production automotive coverings. Shredded carpet waste was used to obtain new systems based on thermoplastic polymer materials, in this case linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). As automotive carpet waste, we used a material composed mainly from polyamide 6, chalk, polypropylene. Optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy characterized the structure of both the automotive lining and finished materials. The dependence of the mechanical properties and thermo-oxidative stability on the mutual content of the components was investigated.
