    Description

    Technical Field



    [0001] The present invention relates to a polyarylene sulfide resin molded article that contains a polyarylene sulfide resin and has, in particular, various excellent characteristics, e.g., rigidity, heat resistance, dimensional stability, chemical resistance, and temperature cycle resistance, of the polyarylene sulfide resin, excellent mold releasability, and in addition, excellent mechanical strength of the cured material and adhesiveness to a silicone resin and relates to a polyarylene sulfide resin composition for providing the molded article.

    Background Art



    [0002] The polyarylene sulfide (hereafter may be abbreviated as PAS) resin represented by a polyphenylene sulfide (hereafter may be abbreviated as PPS) resin has excellent mechanical strength, heat resistance, chemical resistance, moldability, and dimensional stability and is used as, for example, a material for forming electric·electronic parts and automobile parts by utilizing the above-described characteristics.

    [0003] However, the polyarylene sulfide resin has insufficient adhesiveness to a silicone resin compared with other resin engineering plastics. In this regard, in order to improve this defect of the PPS resin, mixing or alloying with a different type of resin has been investigated.

    [0004] In particular, mixing of a polyarylene sulfide resin having high heat resistance with a polytetrafluoroethylene resin (hereafter abbreviated as PTFE) has been investigated. For example, PTL 1 discloses a polyarylene sulfide resin composition in which a polyarylene sulfide resin is mixed with PTFE and a reinforcing material. It is mentioned that the polyarylene sulfide resin composition and a molded article thereof have excellent mechanical characteristics, electric insulation properties, and fluidity and further have excellent adhesiveness to an epoxy resin. However, if the molded article is sealed with a silicone resin, crystallization of the silicone resin excessively proceeds, the silicone resin whitens at the interface to the molded article and, as a result, the adhesion strength relative to the silicone resin is degraded. Therefore, it cannot be said that the adhesiveness to the silicone resin is always sufficient.

    [0005] Also, a polyarylene sulfide resin composition, in which a small amount of PTFE and a reinforcing material are added, and a molded article thereof are known (PTL 2). Regarding the polyarylene sulfide resin composition and the molded article thereof, the adhesiveness to silicone can be improved, however, the releasability is insufficient in the case of molding. For example, when a mold is opened after injection molding, a molded article frequently adheres to the mold (fix side) so as to cause breakage of a Z-shaped portion, which is provided to the molded article, due to a sprue lock pin (Z pin).

    [0006] JP 2013 082792 A relates to the problem to provide a polyarylene sulfide-based resin composition that excels in electrical property of tracking resistance or the like, especially excels in toughness, and further excels in mechanical strength, melt flowability, mold releasability, and molding appearance, thereby being useful for an electric part application of an electric or electronic part or an automobile electrical component or the like. As a solution to the problem, the document describes a polyarylene sulfide-based resin composition which includes, based on 100 parts by weight of polyarylene sulfide (A): 1-50 parts by weight of an ethylene-vinyl alcohol based copolymer (B); 1-25 parts by weight of a compatibilizer (C) of either one kind of a modified polysiloxane compound (C1) having at least one functional group selected from a group consisting of an amino group, an epoxy group, and a carboxyl group at both terminals and/or a polyisocyanate compound (C2) having at least two isocyanate groups in a molecular; 30-250 parts by weight of magnesium hydroxide (D); and 15-250 parts by weight of a fibrous filler (E).

    [0007] EP 0 292 275 A2 describes a polyarylene sulfide resin composition which is improved in heat resistance and comprises (A) 100 parts by weight of a polyarylene sulfide resin, (B) 0.01 to 5 parts by weight of a fatty acid ester represented by the following formula (1), wherein at least one of X1 through X4 stands for a group -O-R and the remainder stands for -H, -OH, an alkyl group or an allyl group, and R stands for an alkyl or alkenyl group having 2 to 30 carbon atoms, and (C) 0 to 400 parts by weight of an inorganic filler.



    [0008] JP H09 235468 A relates to the problem to obtain a highly tough nonreinforced PPS material excellent in elongation, Izod impact strength, and hot water resistance by melt mixing and kneading a polyphenylene sulfide resin with a specific alkoxysilane compd. As a solution to the problem, the document describes a polyphenylene sulfide resin composition which does not substantially contain a fibrous filler or a nonfibrous filler and which is obtained by melt mixing and kneading 99.7-97 wt.-% polyphenylene sulfide resin having a Soxhlet extractability with chloroform of 1.5 wt.-% or lower, a heat of crystallization by temperature fall with a differential scanning calorimeter of 40 J/g or lower, and a total ash content of 0.2 wt.-% or lower with 0.3-3 wt.-% alkoxysilane compound having a cyclohexylepoxy group [preferably d-(3,4-epoxycyclohexyl)ethyltrimethoxysilane] as a toughness improver and an amide compd. formed from a 12-40C aliphatic monocarboxylic acid, a 2-20 C polybasic acid, and a diamine.

    [0009] JP S62 197451 A relates to the problem to provide a resin composition for use in sealing electronic component having excellent moisture resistance and moldability, consisting of a polyphenylene sulfide resin, a specified inorganic filler and a mixture of an organosilane and (modified) silicone oil.

    [0010] As a solution to the problem, the document describes a composition comprising 100 parts by weight of polyphenylene sulfide resin (A) having a melt flow rate of 1,000 to 10,000g/10 min as measured by the method according to ASTM D 1238-74 (316 °C, load: 5kg) which is melt-kneaded with 25-400 parts by weight of an inorganic filler (B) having an aspect ratio of not higher than 9 (e.g., fused silica), 0.2-25 parts by weight of a mixture (C) of an organosilane (e.g., vinyltrimethoxysilane) and unmodified silicone oil (e.g., polydimethylsiloxane) and/or silicone oil modified with a functional group selected from the group consisting of hydroxyl, amino, carboxyl, epoxy, methacryloxy and mercapto groups and optionally other polymers and additives at 280 to 400 °C.

    [0011] JP 2008 069274 A relates to the problem to provide a polyarylene sulfide composition, excellent in adhesiveness to epoxy resins, etc., and also excellent in toughness, impact resistance, weld strength, resistance to heat cycle and mechanical strength and particularly useful for component applications such as electric/electronic components or equipment components for automobiles. As a solution to the problem, the document describes a polyarylene sulfide composition which is composed of (A) 67-98.9 wt.-% polyarylene sulfide, (B) 1-30 wt.-% at least one kind of polyethylene-based copolymer selected from the group consisting of specific modified polyethylene-based copolymers and (C) 0.1-5 wt.-% modified polysiloxane compounds each having at least one kind of functional group selected from the group consisting of an amino group, an epoxy group and a carboxy group at both ends.

    Description of Embodiments



    [0020] A polyarylene sulfide resin composition according to the present invention contains a polyarylene sulfide resin (A), a dimethylpolysiloxane (B), a fatty acid ester (C), and a silane coupling agent (D) as indispensable components. Detailed description will be provided below.

    Polyarylene sulfide resin (A)



    [0021] The polyarylene sulfide resin composition according to the present invention contains the polyarylene sulfide resin (A) as an indispensable component. The polyarylene sulfide resin used in the present invention has a resin structure, in which a structure formed by coupling an aromatic ring and a sulfur atom serves as a repeating unit, and is specifically a resin in which a structural part denoted by formula (1) below

    (in the formula, each of R1 and R2 represents a hydrogen atom, an alkyl group having a carbon atom number of 1 to 4, a nitro group, an amino group, a phenyl group, a methoxy group, or an ethoxy group) serves as a repeating unit.

    [0022] Here, regarding the structural part denoted by formula (1), in particular, each of R1 and R2 in the formula is preferably a hydrogen atom from the viewpoint of the mechanical strength of the polyarylene sulfide resin. In that case, bonding at a para-position, as shown in formula (2) below, is preferable.



    [0023] In particular, the coupling of the sulfur atom to the aromatic ring in the repeating unit is preferably a structure formed by coupling at a para-position, as shown in structural formula (2) above, from the viewpoint of the heat resistance and crystallinity of the polyarylene sulfide resin.

    [0024] In addition to the structural part denoted by formula (1) above, the polyarylene sulfide resin may also include structural parts denoted by formulae (3) to (6)

    to (6) in this order in a proportion of 30 percent by mole or less relative to the total of the structural parts denoted by formula (1) and formulae (3) to (6). In the present invention, in particular, the amount of the structural parts denoted by formulae (3) to (6) above is preferably 10 percent by mole or less from the viewpoint of the heat resistance and mechanical strength of the polyarylene sulfide resin. In the case where the structural parts denoted by formulae (3) to (6) above are included in the polyarylene sulfide resin, the bonding forms thereof may be any of a random copolymer and block copolymer.

    [0025] Also, the polyarylene sulfide resin may include, in the molecular structure thereof, a trifunctional structural part denoted by formula (7) below,

    a naphthyl sulfide bond, or the like, and the proportion is preferably 3 percent by mole or less and particularly 1 percent by mole or less relative to the total number of moles of the other structural parts and this.

    [0026] Meanwhile, the physical properties of the polyarylene sulfide resin are not specifically limited as long as the effects of the present invention are not impaired and are as described below.

    (Melt viscosity)



    [0027] There is no particular limitation regarding the melt viscosity (V6) measured at 300°C of the polyarylene sulfide resin used in the present invention as long as the effects of the present invention are not impaired. The melt viscosity (V6) is preferably within the range of 2 to 1,000 [Pa·s], more preferably within the range of 2 to 500 [Pa·s] because the balance between the fluidity and the mechanical strength is improved, and particularly preferably within the range of 2 to 200 [Pa·s]. In this regard, in the present invention, the melt viscosity (V6) is specified as a value of the melt viscosity measured after the polyarylene sulfide resin is maintained at 300°C, load: 1.96 × 106 Pa, and L/D = 10 mm/1 mm for 6 minutes by using a Koka type flow tester ("CFT-500C" produced by SHIMADZU CORPORATION).

    (Non-Newtonian index)



    [0028] The non-Newtonian index of the polyarylene sulfide resin used in the present invention is not particularly limited as long as the effects of the present invention are not impaired and is preferably within the range of 0.90 to 2.00. In the case where a linear polyarylene sulfide resin is used, the non-Newtonian index is preferably within the range of 0.90 to 1.50, and is more preferably within the range of 0.95 to 1.20. Such a polyarylene sulfide resin has excellent mechanical properties, fluidity, and abrasion resistance. In this regard, the non-Newtonian index (N-value) is a value calculated by using the following formula from the shear rate and the shear stress measured by using CAPILOGRAPH under the condition of 300°C and the ratio L/D of the orifice length (L) to the orifice diameter (D) = 40.
    [Math. 1]

    [where SR represents a shear rate (sec-1), SS represents a shear stress (dyne/cm2), and K represents a constant] As N-value approaches 1, the structure of PPS gets closer to a linear shape and as the N-value increases, the degree of branching increases in the structure.

    (Production method)



    [0029] There is no particular limitation regarding the method for producing the polyarylene sulfide resin (A). Examples thereof include (1) a method that involves polymerizing a dihalogenoaromatic compound, to which a polyhalogenoaromatic compound or another copolymerizable composition is added if necessary, in the presence of sulfur and sodium carbonate, (2) a method that involves polymerizing a dihalogenoaromatic compound, to which a polyhalogenoaromatic compound or another copolymerizable component is added if necessary, in a polar solvent in the presence of a sulfidizing agent and the like, and (3) a method that involves subjecting p-chlorothiophenol, to which another copolymerizable component is added if necessary, to self-condensation. Among these methods, the method of item (2) has general versatility and is preferable. In order to adjust the degree of polymerization during a reaction, an alkali metal salt of carboxylic acid or sulfonic acid may be added or an alkali hydroxide may be added. Regarding the method of item (2), polyarylene sulfide resins produced by a method for producing the polyarylene sulfide resin by introducing a hydrous sulfidizing agent into a heated mixture containing an organic polar solvent and a dihalogenoaromatic compound at a speed suitable for removing water from a reaction mixture, reacting the dihalogenoaromatic compound and the sulfidizing agent, to which a polyhalogenoaromatic compound is added if necessary, in the organic polar solvent, and controlling the amount of water in a reaction system to be within the range of 0.02 to 0.5 mol relative to 1 mol of the organic polar solvent (refer to Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No. 07-228699) and a method that involves reacting a dihalogenoaromatic compound, to which a polyhalogenoaromatic compound or another copolymerizable component is added if necessary, with an alkali metal hydrosulfide and an organic acid alkali metal salt in the presence of a solid alkali metal sulfide and an aprotic polar organic solvent, while the amount of organic acid alkali metal salt is controlled to be within the range of 0.01 to 0.9 mol relative to 1 mol of sulfur source and the amount of water in a reaction system is controlled to be within the range of 0.02 mol or less relative to 1 mol of aprotic polar organic solvent (refer to WO2010/058713) are particularly preferable. Specific examples of dihalogenoaromatic compounds include p-dihalobenzene, m-dihalobenzene, o-dihalobenzene, 2,5-dihalotoluene, 1,4-dihalonaphthalene, 1-methoxy-2,5-dihalobenzene, 4,4'-dihalobiphenyl, 3,5-dihalobenzoic acid, 2,4-dihalobenzoic acid, 2,5-dihalonitrobenzene, 2,4-dihalonitrobenzene, 2,4-dihaloanisole, p,p'-dihalodiphenyl ether, 4,4'-dihalobenzophenone, 4,4'-dihalodiphenylsulfone, 4,4'-dihalodiphenylsulfoxide, 4,4'-dihalodiphenylsulfide, and compounds in which an aromatic ring of each of the above-described compounds is provided with an alkyl group having a carbon atom number of 1 to 18. Examples of polyhalogenoaromatic compounds include 1,2,3-trihalobenzene, 1,2,4-trihalobenzene, 1,3,5-trihalobenzene, 1,2,3,5-tetrahalobenzene, 1,2,4,5-tetrahalobenzene, and 1,4,6-trihalonaphthalene. Also, it is desirable that the halogen atoms included in the above-described compounds be a chlorine atom and a bromine atom.

    [0030] There is no particular limitation regarding an aftertreatment method for the reaction mixture containing the polyarylene sulfide resin produced in the polymerization step. Examples thereof include (1) a method in which, after the polymerization reaction is finished, the solvent is removed by distillation under reduced or atmospheric pressure from the reaction mixture without being processed or after being mixed with an acid or a base, a solid resulting from solvent removal by distillation is washed at least one time with a solvent, e.g., water, the reaction solvent (or an organic solvent having the same level of solubility in a low-molecular-weight polymer as the solubility of the reaction solvent), acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, or an alcohol, and neutralization, water washing, filtration, and drying are performed, (2) a method in which, after the polymerization reaction is finished, the reaction mixture is mixed with a solvent (a solvent that is soluble into the polymerization solvent used and is a poor solvent relative to at least the polyarylene sulfide), e.g., water, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, an alcohol, an ether, a halogenated hydrocarbon, an aromatic hydrocarbon, or an aliphatic hydrocarbon, serving as a precipitating agent so as to precipitate solid products, e.g., polyarylene sulfide and inorganic salts, and these are subjected to filtration, washing, and drying, (3) a method in which, after the polymerization reaction is finished, the reaction mixture is mixed with the reaction solvent (or an organic solvent having the same level of solubility in a low-molecular-weight polymer as the solubility of the reaction solvent), agitation is performed, filtration is performed so as to remove low-molecular-weight polymers, washing is performed at least one time with a solvent, e.g., water, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, or an alcohol, and subsequently, neutralization, water washing, filtration, and drying are performed, (4) a method in which, after the polymerization reaction is finished, water is added to the reaction mixture, and water washing, filtration, addition of an acid in the water washing so as to perform acid treatment as necessary, and drying are performed, and (5) a method in which, after the polymerization reaction is finished, the reaction mixture is filtrated, washing is performed at least one time with the reaction solvent as necessary, and water washing, filtration, and drying are performed.

    [0031] In this regard, in the aftertreatment methods shown in items (1) to (5) as examples, drying of the polyarylene sulfide resin may be performed in vacuum, in air, or in an inert gas atmosphere such as nitrogen.

    Dimethylpolysiloxane (B)



    [0032] The polyarylene sulfide resin composition according to the present invention contains a dimethylpolysiloxane (B) as an indispensable component. The dimethylpolysiloxane used in the present invention is a polymer having a dimethylsiloxane bond (-Si(CH3)2-O-) in the main chain, and the silicon atom may have an organic group other than a methyl group. Examples of such organic groups include alkenyl groups having a carbon atom number of 2 to 8, e.g., a vinyl group, an allyl group, a 1-butenyl group, and 1-hexenyl group. A vinyl group and an allyl group are preferable, and a vinyl group is particularly preferable. Such an alkenyl group may bond to a Si atom at an end of a molecular chain or may bond to a Si atom in the middle of a molecular chain. Further, the above-described dimethylpolysiloxane (B) may be used after the molecular weight is increased by addition polymerization of the alkenyl group.

    [0033] An alkenyl-containing polyorganosiloxane, in which the alkenyl group bonds to only a silicon atom at an end of the molecular chain, is preferable from the viewpoint of the curing reaction rate. The dimethylpolysiloxane is preferably a straight-chain dimethylpolysiloxane.

    [0034] Meanwhile, the dimethylpolysiloxane (B) is preferably silicone rubber that has thermoplasticity and is in the form of solid rubber or a solid powder at ambient temperature (15°C to 35°C).

    [0035] In the case where the (B) component is included, there are advantages that the releasability of a molded article is significantly improved and, as a result, high surface smoothness and excellent adhesiveness to a silicone resin can be provided in combination.

    [0036] The dimethylpolysiloxane may be silicone rubber particles. In such a case, the average particle diameter is not specifically limited and can be appropriately selected in accordance with purpose. The volume average particle diameter is preferably 0.01 µm to 30 µm, and more preferably 0.1 µm to 15 µm. In the case where the volume average particle diameter is 0.01 µm or more, the surface smoothness may be improved because of enhancement of the dispersibility of the polyarylene sulfide resin (A), the fatty acid ester (C), and the silane coupling agent (D). The volume average particle diameter is preferably 30 µm or less because the impact resistance tends to be improved and is further preferably 15 µm or less. In this regard, the volume average particle diameter can be measured by, for example, a laser diffraction method.

    [0037] There is no particular limitation regarding the true specific gravity of the dimethylpolysiloxane (B) component. The true specific gravity can be appropriately selected in accordance with purpose and is preferably 0.90 to 1.5 and more preferably 0.95 to 1.4.

    [0038] There is no particular limitation regarding the number of siloxane bonds in the dimethylpolysiloxane (B) component. The number of siloxane bonds can be appropriately selected in accordance with purpose and is preferably 20 to 15,000, more preferably within the range of 500 to 12,000, particularly preferably within the range of 2,000 to 10,000, and most preferably within the range of 4,000 to 8,000. The dimethylpolysiloxane used in the present invention is preferably any one of a straight-chain dimethylpolysiloxane and a dimethylpolysiloxane having a structure in which straight-chain dimethylpolysiloxanes are cross-linked. In the case of the straight-chain dimethylpolysiloxane, the number of siloxane bonds is more preferably 20 or more because bleed out from the molded article surface tends not to occur easily and further preferably 2,000 or more because bleed out from the molded article surface does not occur easily and the mechanical strength, in particular, the TD direction tensile characteristics, e.g., TD bending strength and TD bending elongation, tend to be improved.

    [0039] In this regard, the number of siloxane bonds in the dimethylpolysiloxane (B) component can be determined by, for example, determining the molecular weight (Mw) of the dimethylpolysiloxane on the basis of the GPC measurement described below and dividing the molecular weight by the molecular weight (74) of a dimethylsiloxane bond unit (-Si(CH3)2-O-).

The content is preferably within the range of 0.01 to 2.0 parts by mass relative to 100 parts by mass of the polyarylene sulfide resin (A), and more preferably within the range of 0.1 to 1.0 parts by mass. It is preferable that the content be within such a range because the polyarylene sulfide resin composition has good releasability and, in addition, the molded article has excellent adhesiveness to a silicone resin.

    [0055] The polyarylene sulfide resin composition according to the present invention preferably contains a filler in addition to the above-described components for the purpose of further improving performance, e.g., the mechanical characteristics, in particular, the thermal shock strength, the heat resistance, and the dimensional stability. The filler used in the present invention is not an indispensable component.

These resins are not indispensable components. The amount of use when the resins are added differs on a purpose basis and, therefore, cannot be specified indiscriminately. The amount may be adjusted appropriately within the range of 0.01 to 1,000 parts by mass relative to 100 parts by mass of the polyarylene sulfide resin (A) in accordance with purpose and application as long as the effects of the present invention are not impaired.

    [0058] Further, when molding is performed, the polyarylene sulfide resin composition according to the present invention contains, as necessary, various additives, e.g., a colorant, a heat-resistant stabilizer, an ultraviolet stabilizer, a foaming agent, a rust inhibitor, a flame retardant, and a lubricant, as arbitrary components within the bounds of not impairing the effects of the present invention. The amounts of use of these additives differ on a purpose basis and, therefore, cannot be specified indiscriminately. The amount may be adjusted appropriately within the range of 0.01 to 1,000 parts by mass relative to 100 parts by mass of the polyarylene sulfide resin (A) in accordance with purpose and application as long as the effects of the present invention are not impaired.

    [0059] There is no particular limitation regarding the method for producing the polyarylene sulfide resin composition according to the present invention. The polyarylene sulfide resin (A), the dimethylpolysiloxane (B), the fatty acid ester (C), and the silane coupling agent (D), which are indispensable components, are melt-kneaded at a melting temperature of the polyarylene sulfide resin (A) or higher. More specifically, production can be performed by the steps of putting raw materials, that is, the polyarylene sulfide resin (A), the dimethylpolysiloxane (B), the fatty acid ester (C), and the silane coupling agent (D) which are indispensable components, and as necessary, other arbitrary components, e.g., the filler, in various forms of a powder, pellets, fragment, and the like into a ribbon blender, Henschel mixer, V-blender, or the like so as to perform dry blending and putting the resulting mixture into a known melt-kneader, e.g., Banbury mixer, a mixing roll, a single or twin screw extruder, or a kneader so as to perform melt-kneading in a temperature range in which the resin temperature becomes the melting point of the polyarylene sulfide or higher, preferably within the range of the melting temperature + 10°C or higher, more preferably within the temperature range of the melting temperature + 10°C to the melting temperature + 100°C, and further preferably within the temperature range of the melting temperature + 20°C to the melting temperature + 50°C. The addition of each component to the melt-kneader and mixing may be performed at a time or several.

    [0060] The melt-kneader is preferably a twin screw extruder from the viewpoint of the dispersibility and the productivity. For example, it is preferable that melt-kneading be performed while the amount of ejection of the resin component within the range of 5 to 500 (kg/hr) and the number of revolutions of a screw within the range of 50 to 500 (rpm) are adjusted appropriately, and it is further preferable that the melt-kneading be performed under the condition in which the ratio of these (the amount of ejection/the number of revolutions of the screw) is 0.02 to 5 (kg/hr/rpm). In the case where the filler and the additives, among the above-described components, are added, it is preferable that these be put into the twin screw extruder from a side feeder of the twin screw extruder from the viewpoint of the dispersibility. Regarding the location of such a side feeder, the ratio of the distance from a resin introduction portion of the twin screw extruder to the side feeder to a entire screw length of the extruder be 0.1 to 0.9. In particular, 0.3 to 0.7 is preferable.

    [0061] The polyarylene sulfide resin composition according to the present invention that is produced by melt-kneading as described above is a melt-kneaded material containing the polyarylene sulfide resin (A), the dimethylpolysiloxane (B), the fatty acid ester (C), and the silane coupling agent (D), which are indispensable components, arbitrary components added as necessary, and components derived therefrom. It is preferable that the resulting melt-kneaded material be processed into the form of pellets, chips, granules, a powder, or the like by a known method, be subjected to predrying at a temperature of 100°C to 150°C as necessary, and be subjected to various types of molding.

    [0062] The polyarylene sulfide resin composition according to the present invention can be subjected to various types of molding, e.g., injection molding, compression molding, extrusion molding into a composite, a sheet, a pipe, or the like, pultrusion molding, blow molding, and transfer molding, and is particularly suitable for an application related to injection molding because of excellent releasability. In the case where molding is performed by using injection molding, there is no particular limitation regarding various molding conditions, and the molding can be performed by a common method. For example, after the step of melting the polyarylene sulfide resin composition in an injection molding machine at a resin temperature within the temperature range of the melting temperature of the polyarylene sulfide resin or higher, preferably within the temperature range of the melting temperature + 10°C or higher, more preferably within the temperature range of the melting temperature + 10°C to the melting temperature + 100°C, and further preferably within the temperature range of the melting temperature + 20°C to the melting temperature + 50°C, molding may be performed by performing injection from the resin ejection outlet into the mold. At that time, the mold temperature may be set to be within a known temperature range, for example, within the range of room temperature (23°C) to 300°C, and preferably 120°C to 180°C.

    [0063] The thus produced molded article of the polyarylene sulfide resin composition has excellent adhesiveness to a silicone resin and, as a result, is suitable for bonding to the silicone resin. For example, in the case where a tabular or box-type molded article composed of the polyarylene sulfide resin composition is sealed with or bonded to a silicone resin and the silicone resin is cured, a composite molded article, in which the molded article produced by molding the polyarylene sulfide resin composition is bonded to a cured material of the silicone resin, is produced.

    [0067] The resulting pellets were supplied to an injection molding machine (SG75-HIPRO·MIII), which was produced by Sumitomo-Netstal, set at a cylinder temperature of 320°C, and injection molding was performed by using a mold for producing an ISO Type A dumbbell specimen while a mold temperature was controlled to be 130°C so as to produce an ISO Type A dumbbell specimen. The tensile strength and the tensile elongation of the resulting dumbbell specimen were measured by measuring methods in conformity with ISO 527-1 and 2.

    [Method for measuring tensile characteristics in TD direction]



    [0068] The resulting pellets were supplied to an injection molding machine (SG75-HIPRO·MIII), which was produced by Sumitomo-Netstal, set at a cylinder temperature of 320°C, and injection molding was performed by using a mold for producing an ISO D2 plate while a mold temperature was controlled to be 130°C, and cutting into the ISO D2 plate was performed so as to produce a test specimen.

The resulting ASTM No. 1 dumbbell specimen was divided at the center into two equal parts. A spacer (thickness: 1.8 to 2.2 mm, opening portion: 5 mm × 10 mm) formed so as to have a contact area with a silicone resin described later of 50 mm2 was interposed between the two equal parts produced by dividing the ASTM No. 1 dumbbell specimen, and fixing was performed by using a clip. Thereafter, a silicone resin ("SE-1714" produced by Dow Corning Corp.) was injected into the opening portion and was cured·adhered by performing heating for 3 hours in a hot-air drier set at 135°C. After cooling was performed at 23°C for 1 day, the spacer was removed. The tensile strength at break of the resulting test specimen was measured at a strain rate of 1 mm/min, a distance between supported points of 80 mm, and 23°C by using a tensile tester produced by Instron. The resulting value was divided by an adhesion area and was taken as an adhesion strength.
