Abstract: In this study, styrene-(ethylene-co-butylenel-styrene (SEBS) triblock copolymer (Kraton G-1652) was modified with maleic anhydride (MA). The maleated SEBS was used as compatibilizer for the blends of Nylon 6 (PA6) and SEBS. The morphology and impact strength of the blends were measured as functions of concentration and MA graft ratio of maleated SEBS. The compatibility and fracture mechanism of the blends were evaluated from the SEM micrographs of the xylene-etched surfaces and of fractured surfaces. Some of …
