Abstract: In this work we present a n experimental study of shear and apparent elongational behavior of linear low-density (LLDPE) and low-density (LDPE) polyethylene blends by means of capillary rheometry. The characterization of these rheological properties is crucial in the design of a blend that combines the ease of processing of LDPE with the mechanical advantages of the LLDPE. TWO different low-density polyethylenes and one common linear low-density polyethylene were used to prepare the blends. The results obtain…
