Cover: Small amounts of organoclay are added to a PLA/PA11 blend at 70% wt. of PLA to turn the drop-matrix morphology into a co-continuous one. In such a way, a remarkable improvement of the high-temperature creep resistance is achieved owing to the clay-rich PA11 framework, which interpenetrates the PLA and contributes to bear stresses up to 160 °C. Further details can be found in the article by A. Nuzzo, S. Coiai, S. C. Carroccio, N. T. Dintcheva, C. Gambarotti, and G. Filippone on page 31.
