Compatibilization of polyamide 6/isotactic polypropylene blends was investigated by mechanical, morphological, thermal, and rheometrical methods. The primary objective was to obtain blends combining the desirable properties of the two components. Four compatibilizers including maleic anhydride, fumaric acid, or glycidyl functionalities were applied at two concentrations (5 and 10%). Maleic anhydride grafted styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene block copolymer (SEBS-g-MAH) was observed to give excellent mechanica…
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.
