Abstract

This present study has been re-established to investigate failure mode and resistance characteristics of the PC/ABS blends and their ABS constituents under impact for a range of rubber contents. This present study has still been experimentally performed under an instrumented-drop weight impact test (DWIT) at a room temperature. It has been finally revealed that with a particular size of rubber particle, content of rubber significantly influenced impact failure modes and impact resistances of the PC/ABS blends and their ABS constituents as well. The test results showed that impact strength of the blends was improved about 23.22% and 155.33% due to increase in content of rubber up to 15 wt% and 20 wt%, respectively. There was also found that an increase in impact toughness of the blends for 57.48% and 239.23% was due to increase in content of rubber up to 15 wt% and 20 wt%, respectively. Whilst, impact strength of the ABS was improved about 392.98% and 190.12% due to increase in content of rubber up to 15 wt% and 20 wt%, respectively. An increase in impact toughness of the ABS for 308.20% and 172.56% was due to increase in content of rubber up to 15 wt% and 20 wt%, respectively.
