Abstract: The effects of particle size and polymer location (core or shell) on the mechanical properties of core/shell materials composed of polystyrene (PST) and poly(butyl acrylate) (PBA) made by a two-stage emulsion or microemulsion polymerization process are reported. Low-seed content (LSC) latexes were made by batch polymerization in microemulsions stabilized with DTAB in the presence of an organic salt (dibutyl phosphite). High-seed content (HSC) latexes were produced by microemulsion or emulsion polymerization in semi-continuous process. These latexes were subsequently used to form core/shell particles of PST/PBA or PBA/PST and their mechanical properties were examined and compared. Our results indicate that core/shell particle size and the location of the polymers have important effects on the mechanical properties. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
