Phase structure and tensile creep of recycled poly(ethylene terephthalate)/short glass fibers/impact modifier ternary composites

Abstract

Binary and ternary composites of recycled poly(ethylene terephtalate) (rPET), short glass fibres (SGF) and/or impact modifier (IM) were prepared by melt compounding and injection moulding. SEM images of rPET/IM fracture surfaces indicated that IM particles of about 1–2 μm in diameter were uniformly distributed in the rPET matrix, but with a poor adhesion… (More)
