Mechanical and Morphological properties of polyamide-6/ABS blend systems, compatibilized by styrene-maleic anhydride (SMA) copolymer, have been studied. The strength, modulus, and impact properties improved upon the addition of SMA. Morphological studies, using small angle light scattering, polarizing microscopy, and scanning electron microscopy, showed that SMA acts as a compatibilizer for the above system. © 1993 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
