Abstract

In this work five different kind of PE-based materials are presented and characterized: neat PE, PE with nano-silica particles, PE with AO in the amorphous phase, PE with AO-grafted nano-silica particles and the combination of the two latter. Initially, the chemical properties of the materials have been characterized by means of Oxidation Induction Time (OIT) and Fourier Transform InfraRed Spectroscopy (FTIR), in order to investigate their oxidability performances and their resulting chemical composition, respectively. Moreover, electrical performance of these materials has been analyzed through dielectric spectroscopy measurements in order to keep into account the actual suitability of the resulting material for electrical applications. In conclusion, materials with AO-grafted nanoparticles resulted to be convenient in terms of both chemical and electrical property evolution over time.
