Abstract: Abstract The fracture mode of poly(vinyl chloride)/methyl methacrylate/butadiene/styrene (PVC/MBS) polymer blends can change from ductile to brittle in accordance with the changes in shape of the test specimen or test conditions. Therefore, the mechanisms of impact energy absorption and the main cause of stress whitening are complicated. The following results on PVC/MBS blends were obtained by carrying out fracture experiments at different test speeds and temperatures: The ductile/brittle fracture mode of th…
