Nonisothermal Crystallization Kinetics of HDPE/UHMWPE/n-HA Composites
The influence of compatibilizer and dispersant on the nonisothermal crystallization behavior of HDPE/UHMWPE/HA is investigated here by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). It has been analyzed by Jeziorny method. For different composites, the Jeziorny plots shows the linear portion. The small deviations from linearity only appear at higher relative crystallinity because of the secondary crystallization. The value of Avrami parameter n is between 2.7 and 3.5. At the same temperature, Zc and Si become bigger after adding compatibilier and dispersant while tmax is decreasing. The activation energy of crystallization also have been studied by Kissinger equation. The result shows that the addition of compatibilizer and dispersant can decrease the activation energy. In addition, the compatibilizer and dispersant also improve the mechanical properties of composites.
