The microstructure and the thermal and mechanical properties of injection molded samples of different blends of Vectra (LCP) and poly(butylene terephthalate) (PBT) have been studied. Differential scanning calorimetry and hot‐stage polarized light microscopy showed that the crystallization of PBT was unaffected by the presence of LCP. X‐ray diffraction showed that the PBT component was always unoriented in the injection molded samples. Blends with less than 28 vol% LCP exhibited the same stiffness and…
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.
