Title Blends of hyperbranched poly(ether amide)s and polyamide-6
Date 01.09.2000
Abstract Blends of polyamide-6 <B>PA6</B> as matrix and a hyperbranched poly(ether amide) <B>P1</B>, based on 2-(3,5-dihydroxyphenyl)-1,3-oxazoline, were prepared. The content of the hyperbranched polymer was varied between 0.1 and 10 wt.-%. The blends were prepared in order to investigate the influence of the hyperbranched material on the rheological behavior of the new material. The mixed systems exhibit a homogeneous morphology even at high concentrations of the poly(ether amide). The complex viscosity of the new materials was reduced already at a small amount of the hyperbranched polymer whereas the mechanical properties of the blends remained nearly constant compared to the pure <B>PA6</B>.
