Abstract: Abstract Effects of hydrostatic extrusion on the thermal properties of polycarbonate (PC) and of high‐impact polystyrene (HIPS) were studied using differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) measurements. A glass transition temperature (Tg) and a peak temperature were determined from the DSC curves for both PC and HIPS extrudates. The Tg values of the PC extrudates, with a percentage reduction in area, R, from 40 to 50%, change appreciably from the value for the as–received PC. The results of the hydrostatic extr…
