Abstract: Ternary blends of polyarylate (PAR) U-Polymer 100, thermotropic liquid crystalline copolyester (LCP) Vectra A950, and a block copolyesterether Hytrel 7246 were investigated in terms of rheological properties, morphology, and mechanical properties. The PAR/Hytrel blend exhibited melting point depression and gave a unique single Tg over the entire range of blend compositions. Addition of Hytrel to the PAR/LCP blend decreased both dynamic viscosity and storage modulus over the normal processing temperature range…
