Paper Title:
Toughening of Polypropylene-Ethylene Copolymer with Nanosized CaCO3 and Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene
  Abstract

Nanocomposites of nanosized-CaCO3/polypropylene-ethylene copolymer (PPE) and nanosized CaCO3/ PPE/ styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) were prepared by using two-roll mill and single screw extruder. The average particle size of nanosized CaCO3 was determined to be about 30 nm. By adding nanosized CaCO3 into PPE matrix, the toughness of the matrix improves significantly. At nanosized CaCO3 content of 12 phr (parts per hundred PPE resin by weight), the impact strength of CaCO3/PPE at room temperature reaches 61.6 KJ/m2, which is 3.02 times that of unfilled PPE matrix. In addition, the synergistic toughening effect of nanosized CaCO3 and SBS particles on PPE matrix was investigated.
