In this work, blends of polycarbonate and a high density polyethylene were investigated through their morphology, mechanical properties, and the effect of compatibilizers: a copolymer styrene-butadiene-styrene and an ionomer. Blending was performed in the melt state at 220°C, and the concentration of the compatibilizers was vaned from 1% to 5% by weight. In the case of the copolymer modified blend, the results showed no change in the mechanical properties compared to the neat blend, whereas the morphology sho…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
