Abstract

An eco-friendly transparent blend for ultraviolet and visible light rays from polysulfone (PSF) and cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB) was prepared by melting and re-molding. Some optical, mechanical, thermal and morphological properties of the blend were studied by means of UV-Vis spectroscopy, dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The UV-Vis spectroscopy results showed that the blend became more transparent in the ultraviolet region with an increase in CAB concentration, especially at the damage threshold (268 nm). The preferable blend sample contained 0.2% w/w CAB in the PSF/CAB blend, signifying low ultraviolet light absorption while preserving the transparency of the blend. The results also demonstrated that the amount of 0.2% CAB in PSF increased the modulus and thermal stability while decreasing the value of the glass transition temperature.
