Abstract

The use of the same thermoplastic polymer for both the matrix and the filler in the preparation of composites is very attractive, because such composites are in principle fully recyclable. Recently it has been reported the preparation of a mono-material composite (MMC) made of polypropylene to be used in automobile parts. In this work we report on the preparation and characterization of matrices for quasi MMC made of poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET). Particularly we found PET copolymers containing isophthalate (IPA) units adequate to be used as matrix.
