Abstract In-situ hybrid composites containing matrix polycarbonate, glass fiber and LCP are prepared. The morphology of LCP and the rheological behavior of the composites are described. The relationship between flowability and morphology is discussed. It is interesting to find that in some hybrid systems, composites containing more glass fiber have better flowability than composites containing less glass fiber. Glass fiber aspect ratio is an important factor that determines the flowability… 
Rheological hybrid effect in dually filled polycarbonate melt containing liquid crystalline polymer
Polycarbonate (PC)/liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) blends dually filled with glass fiber and nano-SiO2 were prepared by melt blending, with the use of a commercial Vectra A130 as the source of LCP
A gradient structure formed in injection-molded polycarbonate in situ hybrid composites and its corresponding performances
Three polycarbonate (PC) composites that were reinforced, respectively, with liquid crystalline polymer (LCP), glass fibers, and both of them were prepared by a single injection-molding process. The
Mutual influence of the morphology and capillary rheological properties in nylon/glass‐fiber/liquid‐crystalline‐polymer blends
Nylon-6/glass-fiber (GF)/liquid-crystalline-polymer (LCP) ternary blends with different viscosity ratios were prepared with three kinds of nylon-6 with different viscosities as matrices. The
