Abstract: a l e m 901 28 P a l e m , Italy Measurements of melt strength and breaking stretching ratio of several blends of thermoplastic polymers with liquid crystalline polymers are presented. The melt strength behavior depends not only on the viscosity of the blends but also on the temperature dependence of the viscosity. In particular, even if the viscosities of the blends are, at the extrusion temperature, lower than that of the thermoplastic matrices, the melt strength can be larger than that of the pure thermopl…
