Polyethylene terephtyalate (PET) and high‐density polyethylene (HDPE) constitute a major portion of the thermoplastic materials currently being used in the packaging industry. Blends of HDPE/PET can be compatibilized by utilizing ester groups or terminal carboxyl and hydroxyl groups present in PET. An ethyleneglycidyl methacrylate copolymer (EGMA) was found to be very effective in compatibilizing this blend by forming a compatibilizer in‐situ. The in‐situ formation of the compatibilizer and its distr…
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.
