Abstract: The effect of hydrostatic pressure on molecular deformation of polypropylene extended under hydrostatic pressure is investigated by using internal friction measurements, wide angle X-ray diffraction, and polarizing microscopy. A homogeneously transparent straight part is obtained by extending samples in the pressure range from 78 to 128 MPa. The overall mechanical properties of a sample extended under P = 102 MPa is significantly different from that of a sample extended under P = 128 MPa. The difference is re…
