Nylon 6 has been toughened by rubber particles that were dispersed within the matrix via additives that physically interact with the elastomer phase but chemically react with the polyamide phase. To disperse a core‐shell impact modifier having a poly(methyl methacrylate) or PMMA shell, most of the work presented is based on the use of a styrene/acrylic acid copolymer containing 8 wt% acrylic acid, SAA8. SAA8 is miscible with PMMA and should located in the PMMA grafted chains of the impact modifier wh…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
