Abstract: Abstract The tensile property of a plastic/rubber blend depends critically on the morphology and connectivity of the two phases. At low plastic volume fractions, the plastic phase forms isolated domains in the matrix of rubber phase, and the tensile property of the blend is largely controlled by the continuous rubber phase. As the plastic volume fraction increases, the plastic phase gradually connects into a pervasive network that eventually dominates the tensile and shear properties of the blend. The transit…
