The molecular weight distribution of a PEEK resin affects the crystallinity [26, 29], crystallization kinetics [37-41], rheology [29, 37, 41], and mechanical properties [41-43], but few studies have reported the molecular weight distribution of commercial PEEK resins.
Afterward, an FTIR spectrometer (Impact type 410, USA) and X-ray diffractometer (XRD-TTR3, Japan) were used to analyze the functional groups and the degree of cellulose crystallinity, respectively, of the treated and untreated samples.
For this study, 100 % cotton fabric of 110*110/ 60*60 was used and analysed in reference to crystallinity and tensile strength by using X-ray diffractometer and tensile strength tester.
Among the treated fibers FT1 exhibits higher degradation temperature as compared to FT2 due to its higher crystallinity index (CrI).
The crystallinity of PLA was enhanced by 114%, and the increase in crystallinity of PLA/PHO blend was 274%, indicating a strong nucleation effect.
Carbon fiber precursors produced by using the optimal conditions could obtain the highest crystallinity of 36.
Since these spectroscopic techniques are based on surface reflectance or absorbance, they are usually applied to films or thin samples (less than 2 mm) for which surface crystallinity is known to be representative across sample thickness (Pantani et al.
2] These materials were used because of their well characterized properties, including crystallinity and particle size.
The team also addressed TPO's less-than-stellar scratch resistance performance by modifying the material to have a higher surface crystallinity, which places it on par with the touchstone for such applications: polycarbonate ABS.
Their crystallinity also makes them more chemically durable
