Abstract: 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-…
