Preparation of Polypropylene Graft Maleic Anhydride (PP-g-MA) via Twin Screw Extrusion

Article Preview

Polypropylene (PP) samples grafted with Maleic Anhydride (MA) were prepared by reactive blending via co-rotating twin screw extrusion. The PP was functionalized in the presence of an optimized amount of precursor, Dicumyl Peroxide (DCP) and MA. The amounts of MA grafted on PP were checked by standard test method for acid number. Maleated PP as a compatibilizer with the highest acid number was added to PP/Polyamide 6 (PA6) and blended in the twin screw extrusion. It was found that the PP-g-MA enhanced tensile properties as well as the izod impact properties of notched samples of PP/PA6/PP-g-MA blends compared to neat polypropylene. The scanning electron microscope confirmed the good adhesion of PA6 on PP matrix.
