Electron-induced reactive processing of polypropylene/ethylene octene copolymer blends – a new method to produce toughened polypropylene

Electron-induced reactive processing of polypropylene/ethylene octene copolymer blends – a new method to produce toughened polypropylene

Isotactic polypropylene has a good chemical resistance and hardness. However it has a low toughness. The blending with a rubber results in a significant increase of toughness. The main drawback of this method is a reduction of E-modulus and tensile strength. Increased values of tensile strength can be achieved by crosslinking of the rubber phase in polypropylene by high energy electrons under the dynamic conditions of melt mixing. This novel method was used for the production of toughened polypropylene. In contrast to state of the art the tensile strength of toughened polypro-pylene is comparable with that value of original polypropylene.
