Promotion of poly(vinylidene fluoride) on thermal stability and rheological property of ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene copolymer

Promotion of poly(vinylidene fluoride) on thermal stability and rheological property of... AbstractIn this work, the thermal stability, rheological properties and mechanical properties of ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene copolymer (ETFE)/poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) blends were investigated by thermogravimetric analysis, rheometer and the tensile test. Thermal results indicated that blends had better thermal oxidation resistance than pure ETFE. Particularly, the initial thermal decomposition temperature (Td0) and the temperature at maximum decomposition rate (Tdmax) of PVDF/ETFE (10/90 wt%) blends were at 374.49°C and 480°C, which were 52.6°C and 34°C higher than pure ETFE. The activation energy of thermal degradation (Ed) of ETFE was 66 kJ/mol, while the PVDF/ETFE (10/90 wt%) blends presented a higher Ed, near 187 kJ/mol. Furthermore, rheological measurements demonstrated that the shear-thinning tendency of blends became stronger with increasing PVDF content. PVDF/ETFE (10/90 wt%) blends had somewhat lower mechanical properties than ETFE, which was still high enough for various applications. Blends with PVDF provided an efficient method to extend the application area of ETFE. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png e-Polymers de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractIn this work, the thermal stability, rheological properties and mechanical properties of ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene copolymer (ETFE)/poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) blends were investigated by thermogravimetric analysis, rheometer and the tensile test. Thermal results indicated that blends had better thermal oxidation resistance than pure ETFE. Particularly, the initial thermal decomposition temperature (Td0) and the temperature at maximum decomposition rate (Tdmax) of PVDF/ETFE (10/90 wt%) blends were at 374.49°C and 480°C, which were 52.6°C and 34°C higher than pure ETFE. The activation energy of thermal degradation (Ed) of ETFE was 66 kJ/mol, while the PVDF/ETFE (10/90 wt%) blends presented a higher Ed, near 187 kJ/mol. Furthermore, rheological measurements demonstrated that the shear-thinning tendency of blends became stronger with increasing PVDF content. PVDF/ETFE (10/90 wt%) blends had somewhat lower mechanical properties than ETFE, which was still high enough for various applications. Blends with PVDF provided an efficient method to extend the application area of ETFE.
