The optimal range for interfacial temperature is found to be just under the melting temperature for semicrystalline thermoplastic materials.
Thermal-responsive semicrystalline polymers must be subjected to a constant stress to yield a two-way SME.
In this article, the semicrystalline polyimides containing bridged linkages were synthesized using different monomers, and their properties were characterized.
For this reason, those polymers are commonly referred to as semicrystalline. Polymers, which because of their structure, cannot crystallize substantially are designated as amorphous (Fig.
The colorants are soluble in organic solvents and are highly suitable for coloring amorphous and semicrystalline plastics such as PS, PET, PC, ABS and PMMA.
These are amorphous and semicrystalline polymers, polymer blends, rubber-toughened polymers, composites, nanostructured polymers, and special forms and applications.
Strobl and Hagedorn [7] first proposed using Raman spectroscopy to characterize the three-phase morphological structure of semicrystalline polyethylene.
The next four chapters treat physical structures in the solid state: in the amorphous state, in semicrystalline polymers, in mesophases, and polymer molecules in and at interfaces.
When it is heated above the glass transition temperature for PEEK, 143[degrees]C, it will revert to semicrystalline form.
PTT semicrystalline polyester is closely related to the more common thermoplastic polyesters, PET and PBT, by typically less expensive.
Because of its semicrystalline structure, SPS is inherently more dimensionally stable and warpage-free than alternative materials, thus requiring less reinforcement.
Although semicrystalline polymers also showed great potential in functional microstructure devices and systems, few publications had paid attention on the micro fabrication process for them.
