Cover: Small amounts of organoclay are added to a PLA/PA11 blend at 70% wt. of PLA to turn the drop‐matrix morphology into a co‐continuous one. In such a way, a remarkable improvement of the high‐temperature creep resistance is achieved owing to the clay‐rich PA11 framework, which interpenetrates the PLA and contributes to bear stresses up to 160 C. Further details can be found in the article by A. Nuzzo, S. Coiai, SC Carroccio, NT Dintcheva, C. Gambarotti, and G. Filippone on page 31.
