30 non-isothermal vulcanization, respectively, have been developed. For isothermal vulcanization, the model developed by (Lopez-Manchado, et al. 2003) can be used: where dα / dt is the vulcanization rate, with α, degree of curing, and t, the time. K is the specific rate constant at temperature T and m and n are both the order of reaction . For non-isothermal vulcanization, the reaction can be quantified by Kissing er’s theory (Kissinger 1957): where q is the heating rate, Tp is the exothermic peak temperature, Ea is the activation energy, R is the gas constant, and A is a pre-exponential factor. A plot of ln(q/T 2 p ) versus 1/T p should be linear and the apparent activation energy can be obtained from the

Unformatted text preview: slope of the straight line. In this study, non-isothermal kinetic model was used to study the vulcanization kinetics of the FC2260 nanocomposites. DSC analysis of those materials mixed by the Haake mixing head (i.e. after initial vulcanization) was performed using a Mettler-Toledo 822e DSC. Each sample was tested using four different heating rates, i.e. 8, 10, 15, and 20 o C/ min. The collected data was used to analyze vulcanization kinetics of FC2260 in the nanocomposites. 2.3.4 Other Characterizations dα / dt = K(T)α m (1-α) n-ln(q/ T p 2 ) =E a / RT p-ln(AR/E a )...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
