Paper Title:
In Situ Formation of Poly(ethylene naphthalate) Microfibres in Polyethylene and Polypropylene during Extrusion
  Abstract

Tensile properties and morphology of poly(ethylene naphthalate)/polyolefin blends and the relationship with the extrusion die size were investigated. Scanning electron micrographs of the blends reveal that the fibre morphology is developed during extrusion through the die. Skin-core morphology has been observed. As die diameter decreases, a droplet-to-fibre transition in morphology increases tensile strength and stiffness. After microfibrillization, up to 100% increase in the tensile stiffness was observed and the tensile strength could increase by one order of magnitude.
