Effects of Fillers on Properties and Performance
- 238 Downloads
A filler is defined as any material added to a polymer that is significantly different structurally or chemically from the basic polymer. By convention this exempts such materials as plasticizers or compatible resins which in effect become part of the continuous plastic phase. Even the addition of a rubbery second phase such as exists in high impact polystyrene is excluded although it can be distinguished from the polystyrene phase microscopically because the material acts in most respects as a homogeneous phase.
