Abstract

Poly(styrene-co-acrylonitrile) (SAN) which is a random, amorphous, linear copolymer produced by copolymerising styrene and acrylonitrile was investigated experimentally. Specimens were supplied from a private company and they were analysed using a differential scanning calorimetry machine (DSC). The behaviour of the material in creep, tension and hardness experiments was investigated experimentally at several temperatures. The creep response of SAN was also evaluated.
