Abstract: Abstract In this study, blends of virgin and recycled polyethylene (PE) and poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC), with a methylmethacrylate‐ethylacrylate copolymer as a processing aid, were prepared in the molten state. Different additives such as ethylenevinylacetate copolymers, ethylene‐methacrylic acid ionomer, and two peroxides (dibenzoyl and dicumyl), in the presence of a coupling agent, were used to compatibilize the blend or possibly induce graft structures. The blends' morphologies, tensile properties, and impa…
