Thermodynamics of high temperature polymer blends

M.T. DeMeuse,     MTD Polymer Consulting, USA

Abstract:

The performance and subsequent properties of polymer blends are highly dependent on the blend’s phase structure. For example, a miscible mixture of two polymers will have different features to an immiscible mixture of the same two polymers. Additionally, the manner in which a transformation from a miscible blend to an immiscible blend occurs will affect the ultimate properties. These features can be categorized under the topic of thermodynamics of polymer blends. This chapter discusses some features of the thermodynamics of blends that contain high temperature polymers, highlighting those which are most important in defining the blend ...
