Paper Title:
Crystallization Behavior of Polypropylene (PP)/ Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Composite Fibres
  Abstract

Polypropylene (PP)/ polyethylene terephthalate (PET) composite fibres modified by PP-g-AA as a compatilizer were prepared by melt extrusion in a twin screw extruder. The crystallization and melting behavior of PP fibre and PP/PET composite fibres were investigated with differential scanning calorimeter (DSC)[1]. The results indicate that addition of PET acts as nucleating agent on the PP/PET composite fibres and increases the crystallization temperature of PP. [2,3]The crystallization peak temperature (Tp) increased first and decreased afterwards with the increase of PET, indicating that small amount of PET would promote the crystallization of PP, but excessive would reduce the crystallinity.
