  • PBT is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic polymer whose deformation behavior highly depends on processing parameters. This makes it a model polymer for investigating morphological changes caused by deformation on the spherulitic and lamellar level. In the neck region all states of deformation of the spherulites are observed. Even in the fibrillar phase the borders of the spherulites remain visible. The spherulitic structure is not totally destructed in the neck.The lamellar structure of the… CONTINUE READING
