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…
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.
