Abstract
Poly(lactic) acid, (PLA) is a biodegradable polymer that has attracted interest as a potential substitute for some thermoplastic polymers. However, its advanced brittleness at room temperature represents one of the major drawbacks for its general use. In this work, PLA was modified by reactive extrusion (PLAREx) to enhance the rheological behavior and to limit its degradation. The modified material was melt blended with ABS, analyzing the resultant morphology, rheological, thermo-mechanical and ...
