  • Chemical treatment of sisal fiber using alkali and clay method 

    Mohan, T. P.; Kanny, Krishnan (Elsevierhttp://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1359835X12002138, 2012-07-24)
    In this study the chemical treatment of sisal fiber using the combined alkali (NaOH) and clay is discussed. The purpose of this fiber treatment is to improve the fiber–matrix compatibility, interface strength, mechanical, ...
  • Effect of nanoclay in HDPE–glass fiber composites on processing, structure, and properties 

    Mohan, T. P.; Kanny, Krishnan (Taylor and Francishttp://dx.doi.org/10.1080/09243046.2012.736348, 2012-10-23)
    Natural Na+ montmorillonite (MMT) microclay and organo-treated MMT nanoclay were independently filled in a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) polymer and HDPE–glass fiber (GF) composite and the rheological and mechanical ...
  • Infrared heating assisted thermoforming of polypropylene clay nanocomposites 

    Mohan, T. P.; Kanny, Krishnan (Springer-VerlagDOI 10.1007/s12289-014-1183-x, 2014-06-18)
    The objective of this work is to study the influence of nanoclay addition in PP sheet during infrared (IR) heating assisted thermoforming process. The effect of nanoclay on viscoelastic, friction and dimensional characteristics ...
  • Melt blend studies of nanoclay-filled polypropylene (PP)–high- density polyethylene (HDPE) composites 

    Mohan, T. P.; Kanny, Krishnan (Springerhttp://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10853-013-7642-9, 2013)
    The objective of this work is to study how the rheological factors of unfilled and nanoclay-filled HDPE– PP blend series influence the structure, morphology, and mixing characteristics. For this study, a series of HDPE–PP ...
  • Reuse of cured epoxy as a reinforcement in an epoxy composite 

    Mohan, T. P.; Kanny, Krishnan (Wileyhttp://dx.doi.org/10.1002/pen.23444, 2013)
    This article discusses the reuse of a thermoset-based epoxy polymer. In this method, cured epoxy polymer is ground to powder of particle size ranging from 1 to 30 μm. The ground epoxy is then filled in an epoxy polymer to ...
