Abstract: Two‐ and three‐component polypropylene (PP) blends and composites were prepared to study their structure/property relationships. Butadiene‐styrene (BDS) copolymers of low compatibility formed large particles of poor adhesion in PP resulting in inferior mechanical properties. Better miscibility of ethylene‐propylene‐diene (EPDM) elastomer results in more finely dispersed particles and the experimental results indicate a transition to an interpenetrating network (IPN)– like structure with increasing elastomer co…
