AbstractParticle suspensions are used in a variety of material processes including powder injection molding, polymer composite molding and metallic foam production. The flow behavior of the suspensions is critical for the adequate processing of such materials. It is well known that particle characteristics have a significant impact on the flow behavior of these solid-liquid systems. In order to better understand the effect of particle characteristics on the rheology of these filled systems, the elastic and viscous moduli G' and G'' of suspensions prepared with particles of different chemical natures (Ni, Cu, Ti, Ti6Al4V, Fe, bronze, SS316L) in molten low-density polyethylene were evaluated under stress sweep using a plate-plate dynamic controlled-stress rheometer (DSR). Correlations between the moduli, and several particle properties (size, shape, surface area, apparent and tap density) were evaluated and hypotheses on the mechanisms of suspension deformation are proposed.
