Toughening of Nylon 6,6/ABS Alloys
The addition of glass fibers is shown to dramatically alter the relationship of fracture resistance to blend composition found in unreinforced nylon 6.6/ABS blends. While ABS decreased the initiation toughness and greatly increased the crack-propagation toughness of pure nylon 6.6, glass fibers increased the initiation toughness of the alloys.
