Study of the influence of sand content and modifying additives on the properties of polymer-concrete compositions                                                   Novak D.S.1, Bereznenko N.M.2, Seredenko A.A.1, Pishchulin O.H.1                                     1Kyiv National University of Technologies and Design                                                 2State Research Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Kyiv

The aim of this work was to determine the effect of sand content and modifying additives on the hardness, compressive strength and toughness of polymer concrete compositions.

Polymer concrete compositions based on CHROMOPLAST GP 2000 polyester resin, Luperox K1 hardener (organic peroxide for cold curing), cobalt stearate (cobalt salt of stearic acid), styrene and river sand in the form of round pancakes were used for the research. Samples of polymer concrete composites were obtained by mixing resin with sand with the gradual addition of hardener, styrene and cobalt stearate. Metal molds with bent sides were used to obtain the cured polyester composition; ceramic molds (not enameled); metal molds 2 cm high. Hardness, compressive strength and toughness of the developed compositions were investigated by standard methods.

The increase in sand content to 90% of the mass in the polymer-concrete composition leads to an increase in the hardness index by ~ 466%, as well as a decrease in the compressive strength by ~ 62% and toughness by ~ 50%. This is due to the fact that the sand has a higher hardness than polyester resin, and accordingly, increasing its content leads to an increase in the hardness of the composition. The decrease in compressive strength and toughness is due to a decrease in the amount of binder, which makes the composition more brittle. The developed polymer-concrete compositions can be used in construction, and also for repair of the damaged concrete surfaces and elimination of cracks.

Based on the above materials, it was possible to increase the cathode specific power by tens of times (up to 2 kW per 1 kg of polyfluorocarbon) and to reach a record discharge specific capacity of polyfluorocarbon of more than 800 mA*h/g.

Hydrolysates from chromed shavings for leather finish                                  Karolis Kubilius, Violeta Valeikiene, Virgilijus Valeika                                                    Kaunas University of Technology,  Kaunas, Lithuania

Leather’s finishing coatings were produced using collagen hydrolysate (CH) obtained from chromed shavings by alkali and enzymatic hydrolysis. The addition 5% collagen hydrolysate into finishing compositions increases tensile strength and relative elongation of films obtained from the compositions. Further increase of the collagen hydrolysate content in the films leads to worse mechanical properties of the films.

The influence of a classic surfactant: palmitoyl-glycylglycine and bola amphiphilic: bis[2-butyl(sodium bis-thioacetate) sodium dicarboxylate 1,10 decanediyl ester] upon the elastin membrane preparation and separation technologies for removing organic pollutants (dyes) was studied by: UV-VIS and FT/IR-ATR spectroscopy, dynamic light scattering, optical and scanning electron microscopy, contact angle, microbiological tests and the separation rates. Elastin is a fibrous connective tissue, and has elasticity comparable to rubber, arteries and some tendons. Like other biopolymers, elastin are composed of simple amino acids, especially: leucine, glycol and proline.   In this paper, the biomembranes were produced by a casting-solvent evaporation technique. The elastin powder was dissolved in a water- acetic acid (80:20 v/v) solution with and without plasticizer: glycerol and surfactant (classic or bola), constant continuous stirring for 4-6 hrs. at 60ºC, then degassed the solution for 2 hrs. The solution was poured and afterwards maintained in the oven at 40-50°C for 4-8 hrs.  Biomembranes were obtained with different surfactants which influenced the separation properties of membranes. Ecological biomembranes are obtained from a biodegradable biopolymer and can be used successfully in removing dyes from wastewaters.

The aim of this work is to determine the effect of organomodified  montmorillonite clay and thermally expandable graphite on the mechanism of thermodestruction and the flame retardant properties of the intumescent system of ammonium polyphosphate/ melamine/ pentaerythritol/ polymer (nanocomposite). The structure, physico-chemical and thermal properties of polymers and nanocomposites obtained from copolymers of ethylene vinyl acetate, styrene butyl acrylate, and nanomaterials – modified benzalkonium montmorillonite (MMT) and thermally expanded graphite (EG) have been investigated. It has been proved that nanoclay and nanographite in the composition of nanocomposites enhance the thermal characteristics of the original polymers. It has been established that the thermal stability of the investigated compounds increases in a number: polymer<polymer-EG <polymer-MMT <polymer-MMT-EG. It has been shown that graphite systems are characterized by low swelling temperature (<200 °C), small length of stabilization region for swelling coefficient and significant mass loss of coke residue in the temperature range of 200–400 °C. It has been determined that the main positive action of nanographite is the barrier effect.  In turn, systems with MMT are characterized by a slowing of the onset of swelling, as well as a decrease in the swelling coefficient during thermal destruction of the intumescent system in the temperature range 200–700 °С. It has been shown that polymer-MMT nanocomposites have a positive effect on the formation of a coke layer with increasing its strength, density and adhesion to metal substrates. It has been found that the simultaneous presence of nanoclay and nanographite in the hybrid nanocomposite exhibits synergistic effects in the intumescent system: polymer-nanographite. Based on the obtained results, an intumescent basis of fire retardant paint was developed for steel structures, which can be applied to increase the limit of metal fire resistance.

Electrochemical capacitor technology is on the verge of carrying the revolution in road transport and energy storage of renewable energy. However, to fully succeed in the latter, many hurdles still need to be taken. This research was focused on the intensification of electrode fabrication processes. In particular, studies were conducted on the effect of calendering of polymer-carbon composition on its characteristics.  Activated carbon-based electrodes, composed of 4-6% PVDF and 5% carbon percolator, were coated on current collectors. The electrodes were calendered differently. A comparison of the electrochemical performance of uncalendered and calendered electrodes was made. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy analysis of electrochemical capacitors and analysis of resistance measurements showed that hot calendering of the electrodes resulted in a large decrease (about 10 times) in contact resistance at the current collector — electrode interface.

The influence of nanoparticles of metal oxides on the formation of microfibrile polypropylene in the copoliamide matrix                                                   Rezanova N. M., Budash Yu. O., Plavan V. P.                                                          Kyiv National University of Technologies and Design

The effect of nanoparticles of different metal oxides on the formation of a dispersed phase component of in situ microfibrils in a thermodynamically incompatible polypropylene/copolyamide (PP/SPA) mixture was studied. It is shown that the introduction of 1.0 wt.% nanoadditives contributes to improving the morphology of the system — the average diameter of PP fibrils decreases, and their mass fraction increases. On the example of mixtures filled with aluminum oxide nanoparticles, a decrease in the surface tension (γαβ) and an increase in the resistance of liquid PP jets to decay into droplets were found. It was found that increasing the degree of deformation of the dispersed phase droplets and the formation of thinner microfibrils is facilitated by changing the values ​​of the viscosities and elasticities of the melts of the nano powered PP and the matrix and converging them to unity. The results demonstrate the ability to obtain microfiber materials with improved filtering characteristics by adjusting the phase morphology of the initial blend.
