Thermal, rheological, morphological, and mechanical properties of a thermctropic liquid crystalline polymer, TLCP (copolyester Vectra A-950 from Hoechst), blended with a polycarbonate (PC), a polyethylene glycol terephthalate (PETG), and a blend of PC and PETG (20/80) are presented and discussed. Important supercooling effects are observed for the TLCP. For the blends the glass transition temperature of the matrix is shown to decrease slightly, suggesting partial miscibility of the components. A finer disper…
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.
