Syndiotactic polypropylene (sPP) was cast-extruded with a laboratory single screw extruder, obtaining a crystalline and still highly transparent film. The structural studies showed that the film crystallized at room temperature in the disordered helical form I, containing a fraction of a mesophase with the chains in trans-planar conformation. X-ray patterns, taken either along the extrusion direction (MD) or along the orthogonal directions (TD and ND), indicated a low orientation of the c axis parallel to the machine direction (MD) and a partial orientation of the a axis along the transverse direction (TD). Mechanical properties performed in either direction showed a very similar behaviour, but a different strain at the breaking point. The mechanical parameters were derived in both directions.

Abstract

Syndiotactic polypropylene (sPP) was cast-extruded with a laboratory single screw extruder, obtaining a crystalline and still highly transparent film. The structural studies showed that the film crystallized at room temperature in the disordered helical form I, containing a fraction of a mesophase with the chains in trans-planar conformation. X-ray patterns, taken either along the extrusion direction (MD) or along the orthogonal directions (TD and ND), indicated a low orientation of the c axis parallel to the machine direction (MD) and a partial orientation of the a axis along the transverse direction (TD). Mechanical properties performed in either direction showed a very similar behaviour, but a different strain at the breaking point. The mechanical parameters were derived in both directions.
