Abstract: Abstract Development of crystallinity in NEW‐TPI semicrystalline polyimide has been studied using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), wide (WAXS), and small angle X‐ray scattering (SAXS). Crystallinity of the fully imidized powder, pellet, or film processed NEW‐TPI can occur from the melt, and depends upon the holding temperature of the melt. Repetitive exposure to elevated temperatures supresses the development of crystallinity from the melt state. In amorphous pellets and film, crystallinity can also d…
