FERREIRA, Eduardo da Silva Barbosa et al. Properties and Morphology of Polypropylene/Big Bags Compounds. Mat. Res. [online]. 2019, vol.22, suppl.1, e20180850.  Epub 05-Set-2019. ISSN 1516-1439.

In this work, compounds based on two grades of polypropylene (PP), i.e., PP H503 or PP H103 with residues of Big bag fabrics (RBB) were processed in a corrotational twin screw extruder with RBB content ranging from 10% to 50% of the weight. Then, their thermal properties were investigated through Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Thermogravimetry (TG); mechanical by tensile and impact; thermomechanic by heat deflection temperature (HDT); and their morphology by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). With the aim to add maximum RBB content without considerable damage to the properties of neat PPs, it was observed that addition of 10%, 30% and 50% of RBB did not significantly interfere in the PP matrices, being the compound PP + 30% RBB which one presented more successful properties, leading to reused compounds with higher performance and lower costs at same time.
