Abstract: In this research, tensile and fracture behavior of polypropylene (PP) toughened with two types of thermoplastic polyolefin elastomers (TPOs) and filled with fumed silica are investigated. The TPOs are both propylene- and ethylene-based thermoplastic elastomers. Three percentages of TPO (0, 10, and 20 wt%) and four percentages of fumed silica (0, 1, 3, and 5 wt.%) are used. The addition of ethylene-based TPO to PP show higher values of modulus and tensile strength than propylene-based TPO. In contrast, propylen… Show more

“…Polypropylene (PP) is a semi-ductile thermoplastic and one of the most common plastics that has many advantages such as low density, high chemical resistance, easy processing, good thermal stability, and good moldability. 1,2 PP is used in many fields, and industries such as packaging, textiles, automobiles, electronics, clothing, construction, and home appliances; the list is endless. 3,4 However, due to brittle behavior and notch sensitivity, its use as an engineering thermoplastic has been limited.…”
