Porvair Filtration group produces an extensive variety of porous materials such as porous sintered metal, laminated wire mesh, metal foam, porous ceramics and porous plastics
to offer optimum solutions for a huge variety of applications.
Typical applications for Vyon sintered porous plastics
include filtration, solids handling, sound attenuation, battery venting and vacuum tables in markets that range from general engineering, aerospace and electronics to pharmaceuticals and food and beverages.
As recently shown by Chang and Pan (20), the load-carrying capacities of porous plastics and rubber-modified plastics are quite similar when cavitation in rubber particles occurs early in the deformation history and a failure criterion under large deformation is assumed for the rubber material.
As shown by Chang and Pan (20), the load-carrying capacities of porous plastics and rubber-modified plastics are quite close to each other when cavitation takes place early in the deformation history [at the mean stress of a few MPa, see Gent and Lindley (31)].
