A ternary alloy of polyamide-6 (PA), poly(pheny1eneether) (PPE), and rubber has a three-phase structure, in which PPE particles with rubber inclusions are dispersed in a PA matrix. This is an excellent thermoplastic with high impact strength and high heat resistance. To understand the morphology-properties relationship, we undertook a two-dimensional finite element method (FEM) analysis on the deformation mechanism of the ternary alloy. A three-phase model was constructed so that five hybrid particles of PPE-…
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.
