A series of liquid crystal polymer/polyethylene (LCP/PE) blends have been studied to determine the potential of such a system to produce a high modulus film material which retains fabrication and low temperature characteristics of some current PE films. The subject of liquid crystalline polymer blends has been the focus of significant attention for the last decade due to the novel rheological and mechanical properties of this class of polymers. It has been demonstrated that if an LCP blend is processed under …
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.
