In a study of toughening polyester through blending
with polyolefins, Wilfong and co-workers attributed the lowering of [T.sub.c,c], in PET/HDPE binary blends to the stress-induced crystallization created by large volume expansions associated with melting of the HDPE particles.
PLA with other suitable polymers in the presence of a reactive monomer forms a graft copolymer at the interphase, decreases the interfacial tension of the immiscible polymer components and promotes interfacial adhesion.
prior to compression, tabletting or packaging is a critical process where many aspects can go wrong both during the blend and after the blend.
In staple fibres blending
, fibres of different length, different surface structure, crimps, etc do not exhibit the same cohesive contact with each other and behave differently during movement as individual [Wanner, 1979; Oxtoby, 1987; Lawal, 2008].
