Several polymer blend compositions of LaRC-TPI 1500 and New TPI 450 (Mitsui Toatsu) with Xydar SRT 900 LCP (Amoco Performance Products) were extrusion processed. In addition to binary blends containing one TPI with an LCP, ternary blends consisting of an alloy containing both TPIs as the matrix were also p r e cessed. By varying the ratio of the polyimides in the matrix, the blends' thermal behavior could be tailored. This paper addresses both processing issues and film properties of these blends. Rheological…
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.
