For comparison with these results, Arthur D. Little, Inc. [1981] reported Lockport dolomite‐tetrachloroethene contact angle measurements in air of 171° and in water of between 16° and 21°. Owing to their extremely low solubilities in water, NAPLs are able to travel substantial distances through the subsurface as a separate liquid phase and create complex multiphase cleanup problems [Feenstra and Cherry, 1988; Hunt et al., 1988a, 1988b]. While surface modification might be needed in some cases, typically it will add cost, Gently warming your casting top/mold/bezel with a heat gun is an easy way to warm up the area. 5 Howick Place | London | SW1P 1WG. The inlet is closed and the bell jar is briefly returned to a pressure of between 10 and 15 mtorr. [3] Over the past decade a substantial body of work has been done on characterizing the behavior of NAPLs in various geologic media [Kueper, 1989; Schwille, 1988] (see Pankow and Cherry [1996] for an overview). in Modeling Earth Systems (JAMES), Journal of Geophysical Research and Chemical Oceanography, Physical ... Epoxy - typical rubber toughened Epoxy - typical amine-cured Phenol-resorcinol resin Urea-formaldehyde resin Styrene-butadiene rubber Acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber Carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) abraded: 12.4 Two commercially available amine-cured epoxy resin formulations were studied under different environmental conditions with regard to the surface tension evolution using axisymmetric drop shape analysis (ADSA). The present invention also relates to a method for producing a fibre reinforced composite material, and a fibre reinforced composite material when produced by the method. The coating was inspected to ensure complete, uniform coverage, and additional coatings were applied if necessary. The ESCA measurements were preformed by Richard Nowak, of the University at Buffalo Surface Chemistry Group, on a PHI 5100 ESCA with a hemispherical analyzer and a Matteson FTIR with an ATR attachment. Surface Energy Data for Epoxies and epoxy resins Source (a )Mst.Type b Data(c) Comments(d) Wu, 1971 (41) Critical ST γ c = 44 mJ/m 2; 20 oC Test liquids not known.Amine-cured epoxy resin. viscosity and surface tension of the resin, thus increasing the overall level of dispersion of the particles in the epoxy matrix15,30,36-38. Not only do fractures provide both horizontal and vertical conduits for extensive NAPL migration, they also allow NAPL migration to occur in pathways entirely unassociated with the local groundwater flow [Reitsma and Kueper, 1994]. [1994], was chosen for use. Two different techniques were used to characterize the cured epoxy surface properties: wetting … The water vapor inlet is then opened slowly and the water vapor supply release adjusted until the meter reads a constant 200 mtorr. The Lifshitz-van der Waals components of the surface tension were found to be similar for both epoxy systems, while the acid-base components were found to be slightly different. By experimentally determining surface tension, dissolved gas concentration, and the gas diffusion coefficient, they were able to predict time-dependent changes in bubble radii. One of the major unresolved issues of this study is the relationship between “clean” laboratory measurements and the actual behavior of “dirty” flow systems. However, the existence of oil‐wet reservoirs, particularly those in limestones and dolomites, is well documented in the petroleum literature [Nutting, 1934; Benner and Bartell, 1941; Leach et al., 1962; Craig, 1971; Salathiel, 1973]. [32] Certainly, the contact angles measured when the fluid interface is fresh will not be the same as the contact angles found when the fluids dissolve into one another as interface ages. Certainly, this behavior is significantly different from the behavior demonstrated by both the untreated polystyrene and epoxy surfaces. Related to Geologic Time, Mineralogy While this leaves an obvious area for further research, the methodology discussed in this paper provides a way to quantify end‐member surface chemical systems. While frequently described as immiscible fluids, the solubilities of NAPL in water are, in fact, sufficiently high to create significant groundwater contamination [Pankow and Cherry, 1996]. HELOXY™ modifiers are epoxy functionalized alcohols, diols, polyols and acids. Analysis of mechanism, Nonaqueous phase liquid transport and cleanup: 2. The FC‐75 wicks directly into the rock. The sample was stored in a glass petri dish with a loose cover and reexamined periodically with each of the measurement liquids. Recoating Epoxy & Urethane. Some resins have a low viscosity (thin) and some have a high viscosity (thick). [39] The importance of the effects differences in wettability on flow behavior can be demonstrated by a visual evaluation of the simple flow shown in Figure 8. This situation is complicated even further when considering the fluids interfaces found in active systems, where one or both of the liquids is in motion. Ledru et al. However, the highly hydrophilic behavior of the dolomite chip indicated by the low, but nonzero, contact angle measurement at the dolomite‐water‐FC‐75 triple‐point, which was measured on a water‐saturated chip of dolomite, is probably a good indication of the potential behavior of a saturated dolomite aquifer prior to contamination, i.e., a low but nonzero water contact angle with respect to the invading NAPL. Physics, Comets and 3. WEST SYSTEM epoxy is also an excellent moisture barrier, stabilizing the surface so … The liquid was poured into the paint cup of a metal compressed air gun (any high‐quality metal paint sprayer which can achieve a uniform spray can be substituted), and a thin coating of polystyrene applied to the model using broad, even, slightly overlapping strokes. Addition of GNPs to epoxy increased the surface tension to 32.7 mN/m. For this study, a commercially available perfluorocarbon that has low toxicity, would not damage the polymers used in model creation, and has properties similar to common DNAPL contaminants was selected (Material safety data sheet for perfluorocompound FC‐75, 8 pages, 3M, St. Paul, Minnesota, 2003, hereinafter referred to as 3M, 2003) (Table 4).
