Thermal properties of porcelain reinforced polyester resin composites
Keywords:Composites, Polyester resin, Thermo-mechanical analysis, Thermo-gravimetric analysis, Thermal conductivity
Porcelain reinforced polyester resin composites (PPCs) having different compositions have been prepared by compression molding. Thermal properties of PPCs were studied by means of TG-DTA and TMA. The influence of porcelain content on thermal properties of PPCs was studied in detail. Thermal conductivities of PPCs decreased from 0.00068 cal/cm sec°C to 0.00030 cal/cm sec°C by the addition of porcelain from 10 to 60%. The results of this study reveal their good thermal stabilities. The 50% degradation temperature of pure Polyester resin was 401.5°C, but that of the PPC-1, PPC-2 and PPC-4 were 406.3°C, 407.8°C, and 417.3°C respectively. The morphology of the composites was studied with scanning electron microscopy (SEM).Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 52(2), 147-152, 2017
