Rapeseed oil-based rigid polyisocyanurate foams modified with nanoparticles of various type (in English)
Polimery 2014, No 3, 207
Polyisocyanurate foams have been developed using a polyol system partially derived from rapeseed oil (RO). The effect of nanofillers with iso-dimensional geometry (zinc oxide), nanofibers (carbon nanotubes), and nanoplatelets (organically modified montmorillonite) on stiffness and strength of the foams has been studied. It was demonstrated that the tensile properties of the filled foams are enhanced by roughly the same proportion as the stiffness and strength of monolithic filled polymers.
