dc.description.abstract The main goal of this work is to correlate morphological parameters of the binary blend of polyamide 6 (PA6) and a polylactide (PLA) based biodegradable co-polyester blend (BioFlex) (scanning electron microscopy, solvent extraction method) with the solid-state mechanical properties (stress strain analysis) as well as thermal (differential scanning calorimetry) and selected physico-chemical characteristics (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and water uptake analysis). The blends of PA6/BioFlex were prepared in ratios of 100/0, 90/10, 75/25, 60/40, 50/50, 40/60, 25/75, 10/90 and 0/100 in wt.%. The occurrence of co-continuous morphology was observed within the range of 40 to 60 wt.% of BioFlex. Furthermore, the results show that the co-continuous morphology of PA6/BioFlex blends significantly affected both tensile (E modulus) and thermal properties (melting enthalpy) of the blends. In the case of the tensile properties, the effect of the morphological arrangement was strongly dependent on the deformation range. The presence of BioFlex in the blends reduced the crystallizability of PA6 noticeably. Co-continuous structure formation was observed to have a significant effect on the melting enthalpy of the blend. Composition morphology dependent responses were observed in the case of the FTIR and water uptake studies. en
