The morphology and the properties of polymer blends are closely related to processing conditions. A skin/core morphology, with a minor phase undergoing variations in orientation and aspect ratio from the surface to the core of the material is observed in processes such as the injection molding of blends. The use of optical inspection to control the stability and the quality of the product on-line is an interesting tool. In this paper, polymer composites made from glass fibers and glass microspheres embedded i…
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.
