Melt blends of nylon-6/modified ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene terpolymer) have been prepared using a single screw extruder. Electron microscopic observations revealed that the rubber particles are as finely dispersed as in ABS. Both the heat of fusion and the dynamic storage modulus of the blends were linear functions of the blend composition. The melting point of nylon crystallites and glass transition temperatures of poly(acrylonitri1e-co-styrene) (AS) and the rubber phase in ABS and the amorphous ph…
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.
