Abstract

Model ABS compounds have been used to investigate the effect of graft frequency and rubber particle size on microstructure and mechanical properties. Graft frequency was found to have a marked effect on the microstructure of ABS polymers and increasing the graft frequency resulted in an improvement in the dispersion of the rubber phase.
