The effect of copolymerization on transition temperatures of polymeric materials
- 41 Downloads
The relationship between transition temperatures and copolymer composition was studied by DSC. Three types of copolymers were studied: styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN), vinyl chloride-vinyl acetate (VC-VA), and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA). SAN's and VC-VA's are amorphous copolymers, whereas EVA's are semi-crystalline copolymers. The variation of the glass transitions and the crystalline melting are discussed in this study.
