Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMTA) of Polypropylene (PP) Containing Decabromodiphenyl Ether (DBDE) and Glycerol

S. Hamdan, D.M.A. Hashim , M. Ahmad and C.C. Khei

Abstract:
Three series of Polypropylene (PP) specimens, namely series A (without glycerol), B (with 5% glycerol) and C (with 10% glycerol) with various percentage of Decabromodiphenyl Ether (DBDE), were studied using Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analyzer (DMTA). For series A specimen, pure PP (0% glycerol and 0% DBDE) yield the highest storage modulus E’, and the 2% of DBDE gave the lowest (most degradable) E’. 5% DBDE in series B specimen (5% glycerol) produced the lowest E’ while in series C specimen (10% glycerol) 5% DBDE yield the highest E’. For series C specimen, 0.5% DBDE yield the lowest E’ (the most degradable blend). Below the transition temperature E’ did not necessarily decreased systematically with increasing percentage of DBDE for C series specimen.
