Paper Title:
The Effect of Pre-Electron Beam Irradiation of HDPE on the Thermal and Mechanical Properties of HDPE/PET Blends
  Abstract

The effect of electron beam (EB) irradiation of high density polyethylene (HDPE) on polyethylene-terephthalate (PET)/HDPE blends has been investigated. The HDPE component was radiation treated before the blend was melt mixed. Although the radiation treatment of HDPE component with 50-200 kGy caused some decrease in the tensile strength and elasticity modulus, the maximum tensile elongation of the blend showed a significant increase (+40%) at optimum dose (100 kGy). The DSC results and the scanning electron microscope images of the fracture surfaces also showed the benefit of a 100 kGy EB-dose in the connection the otherwise thermodynamically incompatible part of the blend.
