Abstract:

The blending of hydrophobic silica additives with preground powders was studied. Drum type and twin-shell blenders were used with and without additional energy sources to aid in deagglomeration and blending. Resorcinol and o-chlorobenzilidene malononitrile CS powders were used. The resultant powder blends were characterized by a variety of techniques. Properties studied included particle size, density, flowability, aerosolizability, reaerosolizability, and spreading rate on water. In addition, the resorcinol samples were examined in an electron microscope.
