Abstract

The influence of the graft copolymer, the styrene-ethylene-butadiene-styrene rubbery components, and the free polystyrene on the degree of compatibilization, morphology and properties of the actual and model analogs of polypropylene-polystyrene blends was examined. Mixing experiments were conducted on a twin screw mixing element evaluator at Stevens Institute of Technology-Polymer Processing Institute. Observations were confirmed by results from dynamic mechanical analysis, transmission electron microscopy, and the impact properties of the blends.
