Title

Preparation of soy hull augmented rigid and flexible polyurethane films and assessment of their mechanical and thermal properties

Author

Abstract

"Recently polyurethane foams have been successfully prepared from renewable and inexpensive natural resources such as the soy hulls. These soy hull based foams are of considerable interest because of their low cost, good mechanical properties and biodegradability. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the mechanical and thermal properties of soy hull augmented polyurethane films"--Abstract, leaf iii.
