Evaluation of Recycled Far-Infrared/Impact-Resistant Poly(propylene) Composite Plates
In recent year, the environmental consciousness is awakening; hence, the plastic recycling and reusing techniques have drawn much attention. In this paper, impact-resistant polypropylene(IRPP) chips were mixed with nano far-infrared master batches polypropylene(NFMPP) chips in different weight ratios. Then the polypropylene composite plates were formed by using a single screw extruder. Afterward, this study also simulated the plastics recycling procedure from 1 to 6 times, respectively. The results shown the average far-infrared emissivity of polypropylene composite plates were 0.90±0.02ε. In the IZOD measurement, the impact strength of polypropylene composite plate which processed for six times dropped by 20% comparing to the composite plate processed only once.
