Thermal Properties of Ester-Type Easy Cationic Dyeable Poly(ethylene Terephthalate) (ECDP) Polymers
This study investigated the thermal properties of ester-type easy cationic dyeable poly(ethylene terephthalate) (ECDP) polymers using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), therogravimetric analysis (TGA). The mass ratios of 5-sodium sulfo bis(-hydroxyethyl) isophthalate(SIPE) for ECDP polymers were 2.8%, 5.5%, 6.8%, respectively. The fourth monomers were diethylene glycol adipate (DGA), diethylene glycol succinate (DGS) and diethylene glycol subacate (DES) with different contents. The results suggested that the Tg of ester-type ECDP decreased with the increasing the molecule weight of the fourth monomer at fixed SIPE and fourth monomer contents. The Tch of ECDP polymer to be lower than that of the CDP polymer with the same SIPE content. And it decreased as SIPE and fourth monomer contents increased, it also decreased with the increasing of the molecule weight of the fourth monomer given the same SIPE content. The effect of the ester-type soft segments reduced the Tm of ECDP. The thermal stability of ECDP polymer was less than PET and CDP polymers, and it decreased with increasing SIPE content, but increased with the ester-type fourth monomer content increasing.
