Abstract

The morphology of PMMA blends with different polyamides (PA-6, 6/9 and 12) was investigated by transmission electron microscopy, recognizing PA-6/PMMA as the most miscible pair. Blends of these polymers were prepared from solutions in m-cresol and formic acid and the morphology was highly dependent on the solvent. The morphology and the segregation degree of extruded PA-6/PMMA blends was investigated by scanning electron microscopy and dynamic-mechanical analysis. The compatibilization succeeded by the introduction of a block copolymer of polyamide and poly(ethylene oxide).
