Abstract

Summary: The structure-property relationships of thermoplastic polymer blends based on poly(ether-urethane) ionomer (PEUI) and K+-Ion containing styrene-acrylic acid random copolymer (S-co-AA(K)) have been investigated by different methods. Convergence of the glass transition temperature values of the PEUI and the S-co-AA(K) components in the blends studied and improvement of end-use properties have been found.
