5, 6), where the lower yield stress of compounds containing decanoic acid coated Mg[(OH).
1, 2) but the impact resistance of MDPE composites modified by decanoic acid coated fillers is particularly high.
First, MDPE compounds modified by decanoic acid coated fillers exhibit ductile-mode impact failure and high energy absorption, regardless of the level of reversion.
Property maxima are observed at coating levels close to the theoretical monolayer coverage, and ductile mode impact failure (similar to unfilled MDPE) can be retained when using short-chain decanoic acid coatings.
1] wavenumbers were measured, and demonstrated a continued increase when plotted against the decanoic acid coating addition level.
There are fewer visible agglomerates for the compound containing 11% decanoic acid coated filler (Fig.
Coated fillers studied were modified by decanoic acid (6%) and by behenic acid (6% and 14%), together with control compounds containing uncoated filler and unfilled MDPE.
