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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
