This study focuses on the effect of various processing and cooling conditions upon the subsequent melting and solidification behavior of blends of poly(butylene terephthalate) (PBT) and high density polyethylene (HDPE). Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measurements have shown that the crystallization of reprocessed PBT is different from the crystallization behavior of virgin samples. Two melting endotherms for PBT were observed for reprocessed PBT and for PBT‐PE blends. The nature of each PBT …
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.
