New higher added value polymeric materials made of fabrics wastes containing

poly(ethylene terephthalate) (in English)

Polimery 2005, No 6, 468




Summary

The post-production PET-containing fabrics wastes were recycled in order to produce new higher added value polymeric materials using reactive extrusion. These wastes were melt blended with polyamide 6 (PA6) and reactive modifier (M) elaborated in Industrial Chemistry Research Institute in Warsaw. The modifier acts as compatibilizer in the structurally heterogenous initial PA6/PET blends. PA6-block-M-block-PET copolymers formed during the reactive extrusion and located at the interface resulted in good interfacial adhesion, improved tensile properties and high impact strength of these blends.


Key words: PA6/PET blends, recycling, reactive extrusion, modification, structure, mechanical properties
