A Novel High Temperature Thermoplastic

  • D. J. Sikkema


Amorphous fully aromatic polyamides can be prepared by multicomponent copolymerization. Injection mouldable products were polymerized via an acidolytic process, i.e. in the melt. The products show Tg > 250 °C, respectable mechanical properties and they do not absorb common organic solvents.
