The Strain Rate Sensitivity of Plasma Treated Nano TiOx Particles/PP/PLA Nano-Composites Filaments
In the current study the role of plasma treated nano titanium dioxide particles and strain rate on the tensile properties of plasma treated nano TiO2 particles/PP/PLA nano-composites filaments (PTNTOPPCF) was studied. The experiments included tensile tests and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The addition of the plasma treated nano titanium dioxide particles into PP/PLA caused a change in Young's modulus and yield stress of the composites. Strain rate sensitivity of the PTNTOPPCF changed as plasma with and without oxygen treated nano titanium dioxide particles was added to it with different percentage of weight. It was increased with more PLA, MAH, and higher flow rate of oxygen. Activation volumes ranged in 4−40(nm)3 for true nanocrystalline material estimated by the Eyring equation, which were changed un-monotonically with oxygen plasma treatment.
