Abstract

The addition of liquid crystalline polymers to thermoplastics leads to the formation of in-situ composites with improved mechanical properties (in the flow direction) and easier processing than those obtained with the addition of rigid fillers. In this work the influence of the LCP content on the morphological, rheological and mechanical properties of LCP/thermoplastic blends will be presented.
