Blends of y-irradiated and unirradiated low density polyethylene with polyamide 6 were made in order to study possible modifications induced by this irradiation. Blends with y-irradiated polyethylene show structure and properties significantly different with respect to blends made with the unirradiated polyethylene. In this paper data on mechanical properties (tensile and impact) of these blends are presented. Results are related to the different morphologies in the blends.
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.
