Studies on the Mechanical Properties of Foam CB-PVC Composite


Article Preview

In our study, a new kind of foam composite was prepared by melt blending with PVC as the matrix and carbon black (CB) as the filler, the standard-spline was made in the dumbbell system prototype. Tensile strength and elongation at break were measured at 25°C。When the CB was added greater than 2.0%, with the increase of CB added, the determination of sample mechanical index began to decline, when the CB content was greater than 9%, tensile strength and elongation at break of the composites remained basically unchanged.
