Sealing system activated by magnetic induction polymerization

Sealing system activated by magnetic induction polymerization
Fernanda Davi Marques, Fernando Gomes de Souza, Marcio Nele de Souza
This work describes the one-step production of glycerin based polyurethane/magnetite nanocomposites. The polymerization was performed in a nonaqueous dispersion containing the magnetic nanoparticles and the polar monomers under alternating magnetic field. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and crosslink degree tests were useful to conclude that the use of magnetic induction (∼3 min at 9300 W) produced results similar to the ones obtained by the conventional polymerization (∼3 h at 80 °C) in a fraction of the required time. A lost circulation fluid control test also was performed under magnetic induction heating and the system containing 5 wt % of the nanoparticles showed the highest reduction of the fluid flow rate. Scanning electron microscopy and probability density function tests of the best material allowed inferring that composite prepared by magnetic induction presents a non-Gaussian distribution of the diameter, which is directly related to the observed sealing effect. These results showed that proposed polymer/polymerization system can be very useful to the sealing applications. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J. Appl. Polym. Sci. 2017, 134, 45549.
