Introduce a kind of high performance antibacterial glass fiber reinforced PP material

- May 29, 2019-

Zhuzhou times new material science and technology co., LTD. (zhuzhou times new material science and technology co., LTD.) blends a new composite antibacterial agent based on powder rubber nanometer technology and glass fiber reinforced polypropylene (PP) to produce high-performance antibacterial reinforced PP material.The effects of composite antibacterial agent VP101KJ and extrusion process on the antibacterial and mechanical properties of the material were studied.

1. Influence of different antibacterial agents on material properties

The effect of inorganic antibacterial agent RHA - 2 and compound antibacterial agent VP101KJ on the antibacterial rate, mechanical properties and material appearance of glass fiber reinforced PP was studied when the addition amount of both was 0.4%.Adding compound antibacterial agent VP101KJ material, after 50℃ water 350 h test antibacterial rate reached 99.1%, much higher than inorganic antibacterial agent rha-2 antibacterial rate of 56.5%.No matter adding inorganic antibacterial agent RHA - 2 or compound antibacterial agent VP101KJ, the mechanical properties of the materials changed little.

2. The influence of antibacterial agent content on material properties

The study found that, with the increase of compound antibacterial agent content, the antibacterial performance of the material is more and more strong, when the addition of VP101KJ is 0.2%, the antibacterial rate of the material rapidly increased to 88.7%, when the addition of the amount of 0.4%, the antibacterial rate of the material has reached more than 99%.Obviously, the higher the content of antibacterial particles is, the more antibacterial particles are distributed on the unit surface area of the material, so the more antibacterial ions are precipitated, the stronger the killing effect on fungi is, and the better the antibacterial performance is.

3. Influence of extrusion process on material properties

The amount of fixed compound antibacterial agent VP101KJ was 0.4%, and it was extruded and blended with glass fiber reinforced PP material.Through research and comparison, the comprehensive properties of glass fiber reinforced PP material prepared by screw combination with both disperse mixing and distributed mixing are better.

4. Influence of blending process on material properties

Through the study, first the composite antibacterial agent and other auxiliaries and 10% PP blends, and then through glass fiber loading port upstream of weightlessness JiLiangCheng join, the other main ingredient from the main feeding mouth to join, in this method, the material performance than PP and antibacterial agent and compatibilizing agent and other additives and mixing system of material performance well.According to the research, the properties of the materials obtained by the first method are as follows: the antibacterial rate of glass fiber reinforced materials reaches 99.6%, the tensile strength reaches 82.9mpa, the bending strength reaches 96.7mpa, and the notch impact strength reaches 15.3kj /m2.

Conclusion: the new compound antibacterial agent based on powder rubber nanometer technology is more effective than the ordinary silver antibacterial agent.Compound antibacterial agent VP101KJ has a good antibacterial effect. When the dosage is 0.4%, the antibacterial rate of glass fiber reinforced PP material is more than 99%.Under the optimal extrusion process conditions, the antibacterial rate of the reinforced PP material reached 99.6%, the tensile strength reached 82.9mpa, the bending strength reached 96.7mpa, and the notch impact strength reached 15.3kj /m2.The high performance antibacterial PP material has been applied in the fan blades of a Japanese automobile brand.
