Study on Self-Reinforcement of High-Density Polyethylene Extruded with Vibration in Low Temperature
The effect of vibration on the microstructure and mechanical properties of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) sheets, obtained through vibration plasticating extruder in low temperature, were studied systematically. Property Tests show that the tensile strength and the Vika temperature were much improved under the reciprocating axial vibration in low temperature. Differential scanning calorimetry , scanning electron microcopy and wide angle X-ray diffraction were executed to analyze the microstructure of the samples. The results indicate that the vibration extrudate in low temperature has higher crystallinity, perfect crystallite, and new crystal morphology formed , which account for enhancement of the mechanical properties and Vika temperature of sheets, compared to conventional static extrudate.
