Abstract

A series of poly(vinyl alcohol)/poly(butyl acrylate-co-methyl methacrylate) [PVA/P(BA-co-MMA)] blend films with different P(BA-co-MMA) content were prepared by the solution casting method. Surface morphologies of the PVA/P(BA-co-MMA) blend films were studied by scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy. Thermal, mechanical, and chemical properties of PVA/P(BA-co-MMA) blend films were investigated by differential scanning calorimeter, thermogravimetric analysis, tensile tests, and surface contact angle tests. It was revealed that the introduction of P(BA-co-MMA) could affect the properties of the PVA films. The results also showed that, when P(BA-co-MMA) mole content is 3 %, the tensile strength and the surface contact angle of the polymer blend film are 20.4 MPa and 43.5°, respectively, suggesting that the polymer blend film holds both a better mechanical property and a better chemical property.
