  • Improvement of PLA-PVA/chitosan nanocomposite laminate film for packaging
           via crosslinking with electron beam irradiation: Mechanical, thermal and
           antimicrobial analysis

      Abstract: Journal of Plastic Film & Sheeting, Ahead of Print.
      This research investigated and developed a laminate packaging film of poly(lactic acid) (PLA) and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) containing modified chitosan nanoparticles (MCSNPs) treated with 3-(trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate silane (TMSPM) which functioned both as a reinforcement and as an antimicrobial filler. Electron beam irradiation caused crosslink between the PVA and MCSNP molecules via the free radical of carbonyl in the methacrylate group of TMSPM-grafted chitosan nanoparticles and the free radical of hydroxyl group in poly(vinyl alcohol). This improved the PVA hydrophobicity. In addition, the laminate with PVA-g-MCSNPs film irradiated with a 30 kGy electron beam showed the best performance properties due to improved interfacial adhesion between PLA and PVA-g-MCSNPs. As a consequence, the mechanical and thermal properties improved. The 30 kGy irradiated film also had better antibacterial activity against both Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus.

  • Developing a novel konjac flour/poly-vinyl alcohol composite film:
           Preparation, properties and characterization

      Authors: Shuang Lang, Xin Zhang, Guowei Liu, Liangjun Xiao, Hui Wang, Xiaojian Zhou, Guanben Du
      Abstract: Journal of Plastic Film & Sheeting, Ahead of Print.
      Developing bio-based plastic has become an important strategy for solving environmental pollution. In this study, konjac flour (KF) and poly-vinyl alcohol (PVA) as main film-forming substances with added citric acid (CA), glutaraldehyde (GA) and glycerin, were used to prepare bio-based composite films via solution casting. How the PVA polymer amount affected the composite films including mechanical performance, structural properties and morphology was investigated. The results revealed that PVA polymer could obviously improve the mechanical property of the films, and the addition of 25% PVA based on KF mass when CA, GA and glycerin were fixed, was demonstrated as the optimal amount, maintaining an excellent tensile strength (TB) and elongation at break (EAB). Fourier transform infrared spectra (FT-IR) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) results indicated the successful cross-linking reaction between PVA and KF, and some further proofs could be confirmed from scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and thermogravimetry (TG). After modification with PVA, the cross section of the KF/PVA composite film was more dense and uniform, implying that PVA was well fused with KF system. Meanwhile, the films modified with PVA presented a good thermal resistance ability. This work provided an effective pathway for preparing KF/PVA composite films with improved mechanical properties, which may be an alternative way for using konjac flour.

  • Bioplastic from empty fruit bunch cellulose/chitosan /starch: Optimization
           through box-Behnken design to enhance the mechanical properties

      Abstract: Journal of Plastic Film & Sheeting, Ahead of Print.
      This investigation was centered on the intricate processes of fabricating and fine–tuning the concentration of microcellulose derived from oil palm empty fruit bunch (OPEFB). The objective was to employ it as a reinforcing agent, with sorbitol serving as a plasticizer, and chitosan acting as both a plasticizer and a strengthening agent for the formulation of bioplastic films to gain higher value mechanically. The cellulose extraction involved a methodical delignification approach, extracting lignin and hemicellulose from OPEFB to yield brown pulp. Subsequent double peroxide bleaching was employed to reduce the lignin concentration in the pulp. Leveraging the Box–Behnken experimental within a response surface methodology framework, the study scrutinized the influence of independent parameters (additive concentrations) on the ultimate tensile strength and Young’s modulus of the fabricated bioplastic films. Noteworthy variations in ultimate tensile strength and Young’s modulus were discerned, underscoring the impact of microparticle loading on the mechanical attributes of the bioplastic films. The quadratic polynomial model derived from experimental data exhibited coefficients of determination (R2) of 0.8690 for ultimate tensile strength and 0.6793 for Young’s modulus, affirming the adeptness of the models in navigating the optimization space. Microcellulose was isolated (30 – 40) wt.% of OPEFB as the white pulp which revealed a homogenous dispersion with chitosan in the corn starch matrix. The superior tensile strength and Young’s modulus were observed at 6.84 MPa and 21.94 MPa respectively.

      Authors: Ayesha Kausar, Ishaq Ahmad
      Abstract: Journal of Plastic Film & Sheeting, Ahead of Print.
      Recent research is shifting towards adopting recyclable and sustainable plastics instead of traditionally used thermosetting materials. Accordingly, vitrimers behave both as thermoplastics as well as thermosetting polymers. Inimitable vitrimer polymers have been developed with dynamically crosslinked structures enhancing the durability, reprocessing, and mechanical and chemical stability features. This state-of-the-art review discusses vitrimer nanocomposites reinforced with carbonaceous (carbon nanotube, graphene, and graphene oxide) and inorganic (silica, halloysite nanotube) nanofillers has been particularly emphasized. Beneficial structural, microstructural, mechanical strength, modulus, thermal, conducting, reprocessing, engineering, shape memory, self-healing, kinetic, and theoretical topographies have been observed with vitrimers or modified vitrimers (disulfide or ether functional) matrices along with nano-reinforcements towards multifunctional architectures. High-tech vitrimeric nanocomposites show potential regarding electromagnetic shielding, anticorrosion coatings, sensors, joints welding, adhesives, and other sectors. Versatile design compensations, degradability, reprocessability, and methodological features/applications point towards next-generation sustainable materials for modern industries. Hence, this article presents advancements in the field of high performance vitrimeric nanocomposites.

  • Controlling factors of coating thickness of Sisko fluid in blade coating
           process

      Authors: Alia Hanif, Zaheer Abbas, Sabeeh Khaliq
      Abstract: Journal of Plastic Film & Sheeting, Ahead of Print.
      Blade coating is a technique for coating the moving substrate with a protective fluid layer through the blade as a common smoothing device. The heat transfer and slip effects of the rheological Sisko fluid model for plane coater are considered under blade coating process. This model combines the power-law and Newtonian fluids and taken as the limiting behavior of a blade coating in the stiff blade limit. The flow of greases is the most significant example of this type of fluid, which is easily found in nature and has many practical uses. To solve the non-linear expressions, LAT (Lubrication Approximation Theory) is applied, and a shooting technique is used for numerical solutions. The impacts of several parameters on flow characteristics, particularly the velocity ratio K, the Sisko fluid parameter b, the power-law index n, and the slip parameter α are investigated. The effects of both shear-thinning and shear-thickening behaviors are also investigated. The lubrication pressure and temperature increase with the Sisko fluid parameter b and decrease with the slip parameter α. As material parameter b increases from (0.001–1), 20.7% reduction in coating thickness and a 53.2% pressure reduction is noted as compared to the Newtonian case.

  • Mathematical study of viscoelastic polymer during roll-over-web coating

      Authors: Hafiz Muhammad Atif, Fariha Jabeen, Muhammad Asif Javed
      Abstract: Journal of Plastic Film & Sheeting, Ahead of Print.
      Roll-coating, also known as roll-to-roll coating or web coating is a continuous and high-speed method used in various industrial applications to apply a thin and uniform layer of material onto a substrate. This process is commonly employed in industries such as electronics, photovoltaic, printing, packaging, and other fields where precise and consistent coating is essential. Here we present an asymptotic analysis of forward roll coating over a rigid substrate for low Weissenberg number viscoelastic fluids. The analysis uses lubrication theory coupled with regular perturbation theory assuming a simplified Phan-Thien-Tanner (SPPT) constitutive equation and small values of the extensibility parameter ε. The analytical expressions of velocity fields, pressure gradient and pressure fields are obtained while the load carrying force, and power input are estimated by numerical solutions (4th order Runge-Kutta). Increases in both Wi and ε increases the pressure gradient in the nip region and increases in viscoelasticity reduce the overall force on the roll. Further, SPTT model predicts 14% lower pressure for [math] in the nip region when compared to Newtonian model.

  • Evaluation of solubility parameters and relative energy difference (RED)
           on the preparation of polysulfone/polyethylene glycol membrane: A study on

      Abstract: Journal of Plastic Film & Sheeting, Ahead of Print.
      Solubility parameters are effective factors for controlling membrane preparation based on hydrophilic/hydrophobic polymers. Hansen solubility parameters (HSPs) of a polysulfone/polyethylene glycol (PSU/PEG) in increasing PEG molecular weights and binary coagulation bath of solvent/non-solvent mixtures are investigated. The results revealed that with increased PEG molecular weight in the casting solution, the relative energy difference (RED) of the solution increases, and subsequently its instability increases too. On the other hand, by increasing the solvent in the coagulation bath, RED decreases. Findings demonstrated that by increasing PEG molecular weight to 15,000g/mol and increasing solvent to 60 wt% in the coagulation bath, an interconnected sponge-like structure with maximum mean pore size (120 nm) was achieved. With increased PEG molecular weight, membrane morphology tended toward to a sponge-like structure due to delayed demixing in the phase inversion stage. Furthermore, pure water permeability and rejection capability of membranes exhibited that with increasing RED of casting solution and reducing RED of coagulation bath, the highest permeability (2199 L/m2h and the lowest rejection capability (33%) of the membrane were attained. This study confirmed that, for the PSU/PEG system, by controlling the solubility parameters, RED value of casting solution and coagulation bath, membrane characteristics can be controlled.
