Abstract  

Multiblock terpolymers -(PBT-b-PTMO-b-PA12.10)n- comprising the polymer systems in which one of the three blocks (PBT) is not soluble in the hard phase of PA12.10 blocks but is slightly soluble in the soft phase of PTMO blocks have been obtained. The DSC and DMTA method was applied to investigate the thermal properties of these polymers and it was found that the PBT block acts as an element that produce stiffness of -(PBT-b-PTMO-b-PA12.10)n- structure. The terpolymers were compared with the previously described [5] -(PBT-b-PTMO-b-PA12)n- elastomers, in which the rigid PBT block (DP > 7) dissolves in the hard phase of PA12 blocks and partly dissolves in the soft phase. It was found that even a small change in the chemical structure of the amide block influences significantly on the structure, phase separation and the properties of terpolymers.

Abstract  

Two series of multiblock copolymers, poly(ester-block-amide)s (PEA) and poly(amide-block-amide)s (PAA), with the same type of oligoamide soft block were obtained. Oligoamide soft block was prepared from dimerized fatty acid and 1,6-hexamethylenediamine. Oligo(butylene terephthalate) (PBT) was used as oligoester hard block in the first series and oligolaurolactam (PA12) was oligoamide hard block in the second one. The thermal and mechanical properties of these copolymers have been investigated as functions of temperature and the hard/soft block ratio. DSC and DMTA revealed that the copolymers behaved as thermoplastic elastomers.
