Soft segment free thermoplastic polyester elastomers with high performance

Author affiliations

Abstract

A soft segment free thermoplastic polyester elastomer is fabricated by controlling the stereochemical structure of molecular chains with the utilization of the cis 1,4-cyclohexylene ring moiety (cis-CHRM) in poly(butylene 1,4-cyclohexanedicarboxylate) (PBC). PBC with 71% cis-CHRM exhibits good elasticity with shape recovery rates of 64% at 200% strain and 92% at break, tensile modulus, strength and elongation at break at 111 and 18 MPa and 1230%, respectively.
