Summary

Two series of reactive polymer blends based on post-consumer glycol-modified poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PETG) and poly(tetramethylene oxide) (PTMO) were prepared in order to investigate the possibility of utilization of waste PETG foils from the packaging industry. The resulting copolymer consisted of hard segments based on PETG and soft segments of PTMO, the latter accounted for 25, 35 or 50 percent of the total mass. The effects of the content and length of the soft segments derived from poly(oxybutylene) glycol, with molecular weights of 1000 or 2000, on the structure and thermal properties of the resulting materials were investigated.
Keywords: reactive blend, post-consumer glycol-modified poly(ethylene terephthalate) foil, glass transition temperature, thermal stability
