Abstract: Abstract Injection molded samples of binary blends of Vectra (LCP) and the three amorphous polymers polyethersulfone (PES), polycarbonate (PC), and aromatic poly(ester carbonate) (APEC) have been subjected to morphological and rheological characterization, and coefficients of linear thermal expansion and Young's moduli have been determined. The Young's modulus of the PES/LCP blends exhibited a near lower‐bound behavior that could be predicted by the one‐adjustable‐parameter equations of Halpin‐Tsai (ζ = 0.18)…
