Summary

Blends of poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) and polyamide 12 (PA 12) were prepared by melt mixing technique in Brabender Plastograph. The samples have been studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and Charpy impact strength was tested. PVC/PA 12 blends were compatibilized with chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) and investigeted using the same methods. It was shown that such compatibilization is one of the possibilities how to get desired properties starting from brittle and immiscible PVC/PA 12 blends.


Key words: poly(vinyl chloride), polyamide, compatibilization, blend
