Investigation of Morphology of Recycled PET by Modulated DSC

Abstract:

Article Preview

During research injection molded samples were made from recycled poly (ethylene terephthalate) (PET). Morphological properties of samples were investigated by modulated differential scanning calorimetry (MDSC). Total heat flow was separated in two parts, reversing and non-reversing heat flow during measurements. Relationships were found between crystallization and melting processes: the initial crystallinity equals to the non-reversing melting, and the post-crystallization processes equals to reversing melting.
