Preparation and Properties of PS/PSEG Composite Materials


Article Preview

Polystyrene(PS)/Polystyrene-expanded graphite(EG)(PS/PSEG) composites were prepared by melt blending, using a variety of PSEG. The electrical and mechanical properties of the PS/PSEG were measured. Mechanical property measurements of composites indicated higher impact strength and lower tensile strength with increasing content of PSEG. Exfoliated graphite has seen a significant reduction for composites in electrical resistivity.
