Blends of an amorphous polyamide (PA) and a liquid crystalline copolyesteramide (LCP), polytnaphthoate-aminophenoterephthalate) were prepared in a twin-screw extruder. Specimens for mechanical testing were prepared by injection molding. Morphological, thermal, mechanical, and rheological properties were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffractometry, capillary rheometry, and a tensile tester, respectively. The tensile mechanical behavior of th…
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.
