Abstract: Abstract The rheological properties of polystyrene (PS) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) composites filled with monodisperse sized crosslinked polymeric particles are sensitive to processing history and chemical composition. Particles compatible with the matrix, such as PMMA or copolystyrene‐vinylphenol in a PMMA matrix, are randomly dispersed on mixing, yielding (almost) Newtonian fluids. Particles incompatible with the matrix, such as PS or copolystyrene‐acetoxystyrene in PMMA, produce composites whose …
