The use of reactive solvents offers an interesting and flexible route to extend the processing characteristics of thermoplastic polymers beyond their existing limits. This holds for both intractable and tractable polymers. The first mainly applies for amorphous high-T g polymers where processing may be limited due to the high temperatures required which can cause problems related to degradation and where the solvent helps to decrease the processing temperature considerably. A prime example here…
