In our earlier publication , we reported the thermal and mechanical behaviors of the blends of MCPE with conventional polyolefins such as HDPE, PP, CoPP, and Ter-PP.
MCPE based on 1-octene comonomer (grade name of Engage 8200) is the product of DuPont Dow Elastomers, USA.
MCPE with each of HDPE, PP, CoPP, and TerPP were melt blended in the ratios, 95/5, 90/10, 80/20, 60/40, 50/50, 40/60, 20/80, 10/90, and 5/95.
Pure MCPE was cooled to 0[degrees]C, but the other parameters were identical.
1b), the complex melt viscosity of the blend up to 50% MCPE was higher than that of PP.
