Title Jamming in filled polymer systems

Abstract After an introduction into the general characteristics of the jamming behavior, two filler flocculation experiments on a polycarbonate melt filled with multi-walled carbon nanotubes and on a silica-filled ethylene propylene diene monomer elastomer are presented. We propose that these experiments can be regarded as jamming phenomena. The experimental data are successfully modeled using the power saturation equation. Further insights into the physics of such jamming processes have been obtained with the help of X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy experiments.
