Abstract: Abstract In oscillatory rheometry, since the dynamic storage modulus (G′) represents the elastic component of the viscoelastic melt, it has been a rather common practice to associate it with the melt elasticity. Although this assumption might be valid in many instances, there can be exceptions as well. In the present study, we have chosen polypropylene/talc system to demonstrate an exception. For example, the melt elasticity decreases with increasing talc content as revealed by extrudate die swell, entrance p…
