Blends Containing Polyolefins
Published: June 1990
The technology of blends containing major amounts of one or more polyolefins was reviewed. Emphasized was the effect of composition on blend properties.
This report includes blends containing polycarbonates and blends of polyolefins with other thermoplastics. Blends of polyethylene (LDPE, LLDPE and HDPE), polypropylene, and poly-butene-1 with ethylene alkyl acrylate copolymers, ionomers, nylon, and polycarbonates are discussed. A review of the pertinent patents and blends that are commercial or nearly commercial is provided, as well as procedures and equipment typically used for producing blends.
