Abstract

Poly(lactic acid) (PLA) and poly(butylene succinate) (PBS) were blended in a twin screw extruder at various contents of PBS from 0-50 wt%. PLA/PBS blends were melt spun using a single screw extruder equipped with multifilaments spinnerette. The effect of PBS contents on morphology, thermal and mechanical properties of PLA/PBS blend fiber was investigated SEM micrographs indicated that the addition of PBS at 10 wt% was miscible with PLA while the other contents of PBS exhibited phase separation in the blends. The incorporation of PBS affected on the declination of crystallinity in the blends. It can be noted that the addition of PBS could enhance the elasticity of PLA/PBS blend fibers.
