Abstract: Oriented blends of polytethylene terephthalate) (PET) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) with and without compatibilizing agent have been studied with regard to orientation temperature, stretch rate, extension ratio, mode of orientation, and blend composition. These oriented blends have been characterized using infrared spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry. The tensile and tensile impact properties were also investigated. The results show that blends with compatibilizer show strain hardening u…
