Prof. Drs. Suminar Pratapa M.Sc., Ph.D.


Abstract

Data in this article presents the dynamic thermomechanical properties of PEG/amorphous-silica composites with different silica content, i.e. 0, 20 and 40% by weight. These composites were prepared using a solid-state method. The morphology of the amorphous-silica filler powder was determined using the transmission electron microscopes (TEM). Furthermore, the storage modulus (G’) data as a function of temperature were determined from the dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) data in a shear mode. Moreover, the melting temperature and the activation energy for the degradation of each sample were also reported.
