Blended Polypropylene Fiber of Various MFR via a Melt-Blowing Device for Oil Spill Cleanup

Abstract:

Article Preview

PP fibers are commonly used for oil spill cleanup. In order to improve the oil-sorption capacity of the PP fibers, the blended PP fiber of various MFR and unblended PP fiber of certain MFR were fabricated as sorbents by a swirl die melt-blowing device in this study. The material properties of the PP fibers were examined by scanning electron microscopy and contact-angle measurement. The oil sorption and sorption-desorption tests show that the blended PP fibers have a much higher oil-sorption capacity than the unblended PP fibers and an excellent reusability.
