Polymethyl methacrylate-phenoxy blends have been obtained in an injection machine at different injection temperatures in order to determine the possibility of direct blending in these processing machines and also the effect that different blending levels have in the mechanical properties of these miscible blends. High injection temperatures, but in the range used in production of the components, provided fairly well homogenized blends comparable both in transparency and mechanical properties to those obtained by kneading and subsequent compression molding. Very good mechanical properties, although less transparent, were obtained when processing at low injection temperatures.
