Abstract
The main goal of this study is to investigate the influence of draw ratio on morphology and properties in microfibrillar composites (MFCs). In situ MFCs based on polypropylene (PP) and poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) have been prepared at the weight ratio of 80/20 by twin-screw extrusion, followed by cold drawing and injection moulding. In order to study the differences in MFCs caused by draw ratio, the samples were prepared at different ratios and subjected to extensive characterization in each step of the MFC preparation process. The morphology of MFC and influence of draw ratio were investigated by using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The thermal decomposition of the polymers in MFCs was studied by Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), the melting and crystallization behaviour by Dynamic Scanning Calo-rimetry (DSC).
