Title: TECHNOLOGICAL VISIBILITY OF FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE FOAM WITH TEN PERCENTCASTRO-OIL BLEND
Authors: UNUNU, EMUAN LEVITE
Issue Date: 16-Jul-2013
Abstract: This, project ~ork was qone to know the technological viability and performance of flexible polyutethane fO,am produced when 10 pbw of polyol is replaced with castor oil. If i 1f 11 ~ the experime~~ was per1]'ormed in a standard laboratory in Mouka Foam Industry Lagos. t ' four major ph~~ical properties - density, indentation hardness, tensile strength and il i ii i" compressibilitY were tested and characterized. all the tests proved satisfactory when If ' compared wi~ those of (Nigerian Industrial Standard (NJS). h The bl~riding of castor oil into foa.m' formulation is an economic way of producing high densit}{ soft Foam From the exothentpc reading it was observed that the sample with castor oil gave a peak temperal of 87.30c while the control sample gave 120oc., this showed that the icinooleic acid content bf castor oil is a heat absorber
