Steady flow and dynamic viscoelastic behavior of nylon 1313 using parallel-plate rheometer and capillary rheometer



In this study, a novel nylon with long alkane segments (also called nylon 1313), which was synthesized using 1,13-tridecanedioic acid in our laboratory, has been characterized. Different rheological behaviors of nylon 1313 have been presented using steady shear, creep recovery, and dynamic tests. The time-temperature effects have also been investigated. © 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 98: 1643–1651, 2005
