Studies on Mechanical, Thermal, Eletrical Properties and Characterisation of Recycled PET with ABS Compatibilized By Glycerol

Author Name: P.Udayakumar and S.Soundararajan | Format: Paperback | Genre : Educational & Professional | Other Details
Abstract: The present study includes compounding of RPET with ABS and evaluation of the properties of the blends. Recycled PET was melt mixed with ABS (10, 20, 30 wt%) using a Twin-screw extruder and Glycerol as compatibilizer (2%). The RPET/ABS blended materials were tested to find their mechanical, thermal and electrical Properties. In mechanical properties impact strength was improved and flexural strength & flexural modulus were lowered as ABS concentration increases. HDT also increased. The electrical properties were increased for 10% & 20% ABS and then decreased for 30% ABS blended with RPET. The SEM results show the ABS is found to be partlially miscible in the RPET in presence of glycerol for all compositions.
