Introduction to high temperature polymer blends

M.T. Demeuse,     MTD Polymer Consulting, USA


A review of definitions and the overall rationale for the production of high temperature polymer blends is provided. The discussion is divided essentially into two parts: miscible and immiscible blends. It is pointed out that one concern with miscible polymer pairs is that of processing in the miscible state. This phenomenon is dependent on the position of the phase separation temperature relative to the glass transition temperature of the polymer blend. In the case of immiscible blends, the issue of adhesion of the polymers is discussed. Finally, the need for better theoretical models for the prediction of miscibility in polymer blends ...
