MARCONCINI, José M.  e  RUVOLO FILHO, Adhemar. Thermodynamic analysis of mechanical behaviour in the elastic region of blends of recycled poly (ethylene terephthalate) and recycled polyolefins. Polímeros [online]. 2006, vol.16, n.4, pp.323-331. ISSN 1678-5169.

This work describes the study using mechanical tests with the blend of recycled poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) and recycled polyolefin with and without the addition of polypropylene grafted with maleic anhydride and poly(ethylene-co-octene-1). A thermodynamic approach based on the Helmholtz work function was applied in the analysis of mechanical tests, correlating the effects of energy storage and from the compatibilizer on the elastic region of the materials. For the system studied, the polyolefin-rich region shows higher storage of elastic energy corroborating the morphology images obtained from SEM analysis. The thermodynamic analysis seems a useful tool to evaluate the compatibilizer effect in polymeric immiscible blends. In this work, more specifically, this method was used to analyze the mechanical behavior of different compositions of recycled polymeric commodity materials.

Palavras-chave : Blends PET [polyolefin recycled]; compatibilization; mechanical properties; thermodynamic analysis; SEM.
