Abstract

The rheological, mechanical, morphological characteristics, and aging resistance in hot oil of thermoplastic elastomer based on multi-block thermoplastic copolyester elastomer (CPET)/nitrile rubber (NBR) have been investigated. The nitrile rubber is dynamically vulcanized during blending with thermoplastic copolyester elastomer. The etching technique was explored to conduct the SEM studies. The prepared thermoplastic elastomers possess excellent mechanical properties and good oil resistance.
