Abstract

There is general agreement that the observation of shear banding in well entangled polymer solutions and melts has strong implications for existing models of chain entanglement during large deformation. Understandably, observations of this phenomenon in numerous past measurements have been viewed by some as controversial because of the challenge that these observations raise for the current paradigm of nonlinear polymer rheology. We welcome independent measurements aimed at verifying or refuting the existing conclusions based on carefully prepared, well-characterized and strongly entangled polymer solutions. It is clear that measurements were based on solutions that were either only marginally entangled or polydisperse, which understandably did not exhibit shear banding under the weak shearing conditions that they chose stated “we agree that the sample MW is different from that specified by the supplier and has the Z=22 entanglement number”. But rather than making additional measurements on well entangled relatively monodisperse PB solutions following previous protocols, they continue to speculate that their former measurements were sufficient to demonstrate that shear banding does not exist in highly entangled polymer solutions under all conditions. We find position to be unconvincing and discuss in detail why we reject their conclusions, including a description of why the previous solutions researchers had the correct characterization.
