|Title:||Nonisothermal crystallization of reprocessed poly(ethylene terephthalate)|
De Paoli, MA
|Abstract:||Poly(ethylene terephthalate) was submitted to five reprocessing cycles by extrusion. The materials were analyzed with oligomer and after oligomer extraction. The nonisothermal crystallization of the five samples was investigated by differential scanning calorimetry. Samples with oligomer content and carboxylic end group concentrations between 44 and 98 eqw X 10(6) g presented a nonlinear correlation with the crystallization temperature. After the oligomer extraction of the polymer, this correlation is linear. The nonisothermal crystallization results were analyzed using the Ozawa model. The polymers containing oligomers obey the Ozawa model for the first reprocessing cycle. After oligomer extraction, the polymers obey the Ozawa model from the first to the third reprocessing cycle. In both cases, the exponential n values are close to 2.0. For the other cycles, deviations from this model occur. The activation energy was calculated using the Kissinger and Varma models. The values obtained for the five reprocessed samples were inversely proportional to the molar mass when analyzed by both models. (C) 2003 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polyrn Sci 91: 525-531,2004.|
