31. The amorphous polymers retain the rigid rod characteristics and are self-reinforcing which results in very high, isotropic mechanical properties. They are the stiffest unreinforced thermoplastics that are commercially available and provide exceptional strength and stiffness without fillers. Indeed, it exhibits 2e4 times the stiffness and 2e3 times the strength of other thermoplastics. In addition, there are no issues in the orientation of glass- or carbon-fibers within the plastic matrixdand the resulting directional differences in strength.
These impact properties depend on the EPR rubber dispersion, composition and particle sizes, and on the matrix crystallinity. However, such modifications to improve the impact properties are often detrimental to other desired properties such as high stiffness and HDT. The development of these new systems shows an improved balance between properties and therefore represents one of the major challenges within the PP industry. For instance, an improved balance between impact strength and stiffness, impact strength and transparency as well as impact strength and stress whitening is desired and are therefore areas of continuous research.
The progress of civilization was literally determined by man’s ability to modify natural metals, allowing mankind to induce the properties necessary for increasingly sophisticated tools. Indeed, societies that learned to exploit blends of metals developed distinct advantages over their monometallic neighbors; this was exemplified by the advent of bronze and later steels. Metal alloying probably made the transition from art to science in the past century. The basic ingredients are essentially known and fixed in number.
