Crystallization Behavior of Polypropylene/Syndiotactic1,2-Polybutadiene Blends
The melting and crystallization behaviors of Polypropylene/Syndiotactic1,2-polybutadiene (PP/s-PB) blends and neat PP were studied by using DSC, the results showed that the presence of s-PB in PP would have a strong impact on the crystallization capacity of PP. The presence of s-PB in PP could increase the crystallization temperature(Tc) of PP, and the s-PB could obviously lower supercooling temperature(Tm-Tc) of PP, but the s-PB in PP have a Slightly influence on the melting temperature(Tm) of PP. The proposed reason for those are that the crosslinking s-PB in high temperature is a nucleator for PP’s crystallization and increases PP’s crystalline rate. However, the s-PB lowers PP’s crystallinity. At the same time, the presence of PP in blends lowers s-PB’s crystallinity, but the PP in blends have a Slightly influence on the melting temperature(Tm) and crystallization temperature(Tc) of s-PB.
