AbstractThe effects of various compatibilizers on thermal, mechanical and morphological properties of 50/50 polypropylene/polystyrene blends were investigated. Various compatibilizers, polystyrene-(ethylene/butylenes/ styrene) (SEBS), ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), polystyrene-butylene rubber (SBR) and blend of compatibilizers SEBS/PP-g-MAH, EVA/PP-g-MAH, and SBR/PP-g-MAH were used. Differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetric analysis, wide-angle X-ray scattering, scanning electron microscopy, microhardness, and Izod impact strength were adopted. It was found that the influence of various compatibilizers was appeared on all the properties studied. The properties of the blends compatibilized with SEBS, EVA, and SBR are very distinct from those of blends compatibilized with blend of compatibilizers. Results show that compatibilized blends with the blend of compatibilizers EVA/PP-g-MAH, SBR/PP-g-MAH, and SEBS/PP-g-MAH or SBR were relatively more stable than the uncompatibilized blend and blend compatibilized with SEBS or EVA. The compatibilizer does not only reduce the interfacial tension or increase the phase interfacial adhesion between the immiscible polymers, but greatly affects the degree of crystallinity of blends.© Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. 2016
