Structure development during flow-induced crystallization (FIC)influences to a high degree the final propertiesof the material and, therefore, it is important to understand this process. The aim of this work is to studyexperimentally the influence of the deformation and the thermal history on FIC of isotactic polypropylenes(iPP’s). For our investigations we use x-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS) combined with DSC, optical andelectron microscopy. A Linkam shear cell device is used to apply a well… CONTINUE READING
