Abstract

The physicomechanical properties of polymer blend formulations comprising different grades of metallocene-catalyzed linear low-density polyethylenes (mLLDPEs) with high-density polyethylenes (HDPEs) or a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) were investigated. For blends with HDPE, the addition of mLLDPE improves the Izod impact strength and some tensile properties. For blends with LDPE, adding mLLDPE increases the ductility and the percent elongation at break.
