Effect of Shear Rate and Nanoparticles in Extrusion Foaming of Polystyrene in the Presence of Nitrogen Gas

This study was an effort to control foam structure with controlled shear rate in a slit die with addition of nanosilica in the extrusion process. We used general purpose polystyrene as the matrix, nanosilica as a nucleating agent and nitrogen gas as the blowing agent. For better dispersion of nanopa...
