Abstract:

Thermal analysis of various materials can be done by Thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA). TGA gives valued data which can be used to select neat and composite materials for certain applications and to determine parts-performance with better part quality. In this paper, thermal analysis of injection moulded Polypropylene-filler compounds were performed by TGA Analyzer. For TGA analysis, 3 compounds viz. Alumina compounds (PPA-series), TiO2 (PPT-series) and micro-Marble-dust (PPM-series) compounds were made by injection moulding process with 5, 10,15 and 20 weight percentages of the fine fillers with Polypropylene (PP).
