Article title

Reducing Creep Rate of polypropylene's by Soaking Solid solutions of CaCO3

Title variants
Languages of publication
The creep behavior of Polypropylene and Polypropylene/Calcium Carbonate were investigated by tested them at different concentration of Calcium carbonate filler (filler addition is done by soaked pp samples in CaCO3 solution) at different temperatures. A dramatically changed in the FTIR was observed when pp soaked in CaCO3 solution comparing with pristine one. It was found that the creep rate was lowered comparing to the pure Polypropylene. The Creep behavior of the polymer formed was observed to increase with increase in temperature and stress, Calcium carbonate enhanced creep rate and rapture time.
