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 …
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.
