which characteristics are found in polymers with high
degrees of crystallinity?
regular, complex structures
weak intermolecular forces
The good crystallinity polymers have simple regular chain structure like linear chains and slow cooling rate.
High degree of crystallinity polymers are rigid with high melting point, but their impact resistance is low. Whereas, amorphous polymers are soft and have lower melting points.
Crystalline polymers are usually opaque because of light scattering within the boundaries of the crystalline and amorphous solid .The transferency of crystalline solids are generally higher compare to amorphous solid.
