Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Large amounts of stable ß-anhydrite II (AII), a specific type of dehydrated gypsum and a by-product of lactic acid production process, can be melt-blended with bio-sourced and biodegradable polylactide (PLA) to produce economically interesting novel composites with high tensile strength and thermal stability. To enhance their toughness, while preserving an optimal stiffness, selected low molecular weight plasticizers (bis(2-ethylhexyl) adipate and glyceryl triacetate) and polymeric adipates with different molecular weights have been mixed with a specific PLA (l/d isomer ratio of 96/4) and 40 wt% of AII using an internal kneader. Addition of up to 10 wt% plasticizer into these highly filled compositions can trigger a fourfold increase of the impact strength with respect to the compositions without any modifier, cold crystallization properties and a significant decrease of their glass transition temperature. Moreover, these ternary compositions (PLA–AII–plasticizer) are clearly characterized by easier processing, notable thermo-mechanical performances and good filler dispersion. This study represents a new approach in formulating novel melt-processable polyester grades with improved characteristic features using PLA as biodegradable polymer matrix.
