Developing the chemical formulae for production of EVA Buoy using Reversed Engineering Method
MetadataShow full item record
A series of chemical and instrumental analyses was employed using final buoy samples in a Reversed Engineering Method to develop the formulation for production of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) buoys. To accomplish the goal, FTIR, DSC, and TGA and chemical analyses such as Furnace Test were conducted on the samples. The formulation was found to be composed of Co-P01ymer Ethylene Acetate PHR 84, LDPE 16 PER, ADCA 6 PER, Zinc oxide 3 PHR, Kaolin Clay 3 PER, Dicumyl Peroxide 1.7 PHR, and Stearic Acid 2 PHR......
