Abstract: Thermal studies (TGA and DSC) of various ABA and BAB copolymers have been made and the crosslinking and swelling behavior of the polymers have been reported in order to establish the suitability of these polymers for their application as thermoplastic elastomers. From the thermal recycling and outdoor stability studies it is concluded that the ABA copolymers having polyester as the hard block and butadiene based rubber as the soft block would be suitable for use as thermoplastic elastomers. Addition of appropriate antioxidants increases the outdoor stability and thermal recycle ability of these block co-polymers.
