Abstract

To obtain a broad spectrum of the controlled rheological and mechanical properties of polyolefin blends, various methods have been attempted such as the use of block or graft copolymers and modification through peroxide or irradiation. High energy radiation is also widely used in the polymer industry since the radiation can create free radicals from organic substance conveniently at room temperature and thereby initiate free radical reactions. This paper will attempt to present the structure/property relationships of LDPE/ PP blends prepared in a co-rotating twin screw extruder and further modified by: a) reaction with peroxide in the melt, and b) high energy electron beam radiation in the solid state.
