• 3D Printable Filaments Made of Biobased Polyethylene Biocomposites 

      Filgueira, Daniel; Holmen, Solveig; Melbø, Johnny K; Moldes, Diego; Echtermeyer, Andreas; Chinga-Carrasco, Gary (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Two different series of biobased polyethylene (BioPE) were used for the manufacturing of biocomposites, complemented with thermomechanical pulp (TMP) fibers. The intrinsic hydrophilic character of the TMP fibers was ...
    • Mechanism of Yellowing: Carbonyl Formation during Hygrothermal Aging in a Common Amine Epoxy 

      Krauklis, Andrejs; Echtermeyer, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Epoxies are often exposed to water due to rain and humid air environments. Epoxy yellows during its service time under these conditions, even when protected from UV radiation. The material’s color is not regained upon ...
    • Time-Temperature-Plasticization Superposition Principle: Predicting Creep of a Plasticized Epoxy 

      Krauklis, Andrey; Akulichev, Anton; Gagani, Abedin; Echtermeyer, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Long-term creep properties and the effect of water are important for fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials used in offshore applications. Epoxies are often used as a matrix material in such composites. A typical ...
