The Effect of Several Kinds of Oils on the Oil Resistance Behavior of Polystyrene Thermoplastic Vulcanizate

The Effect of Several Kinds of Oils on the Oil Resistance Behavior of Polystyrene Thermoplastic Vulcanizate


The oil resistance behavior of polystyrene thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) such as polypropylene (PP)/polystyrene block copolymer (SBC) systems were investigated using a dynamic mechanical spectrometer (DMS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Testing oils used were paraffinic oil, ASTM oil #3, an automobile grease and petrol, into which all specimens were immersed at 1 00 0 C for 72 hrs. Dynamic mechanical spectra showed that non-crosslinking segments of SBC were subjected to damage by testing oil properties. Particularly their segments seemed to be more soluble and swelled by paraffinic oil or ASTM oil #3. TEM photomicrographs of immersed specimens showed similar results.
