A Novel Nanocomposite Based on Recycled Poly(Ethylene Terephthalate)/ABS Blends and Nano-SiO2
Recycled PET is an important resource of waste, which reused with polar or crystallization polymers, such as PC, PA and PE, by melting blend method have been well studied. But the study of rPET blend with nonpolar and amorphous polymer is still inadequate. In the present work, nano-SiO2 particles were introduced to recycled PET/ABS/AES (55/40/5) blends by extrusion processing. It has been investigated how nano-SiO2 particles influences the morphology and mechanical properties of rPET/ABS blends by the use of AES as compatibilizer. It showed a uniform dispersion of the nano-SiO2 components, and the two-continuous phase of rPET/ABS was more evenly when the content of nano-SiO2 particles at a low level. The tensile strength and beam impact strength of rPET/ABS/AES blends were increased at the same time by adding nano-SiO2 particles..
