According to the literature, incorporation of a proper compatibilizer is the most efficient technique to enhance the mechanical performance of PE/PP blends via [11]: improving morphology and phase dispersion, stabilizing the generated morphology, reducing interfacial tension, and enhancing the adhesion between the polymer domains [12].
In layman's terms, compatibilizer additives allow resins that would not neatly blend to "talk to each other" and bond in a way that creates enhanced performance when compared with either polymer alone.
Hence, the nucleating agent and the compatibilizer were used to improve tensile properties and compatibility of the PBAT/PLA composite films.
In addition to CA and PP, a proprietary compatibilizer was added at various levels to increase the miscibility of the blend.
Jokar, the use of polyethylene glycol as compatibilizer in an industrial method in order to homogenously distribute nanoparticles in the polymeric bed and the use of molten mixing industrial method to inject nanoparticles into the polymer are among the innovative specifications of the research.
The alcohol-functional compatibilizers are shown to have a marked influence on morphology, surface- and mechanical properties of the coatings prepared, in spite of the very small amount of both filler and compatibilizer (together 0.
Maleated polypropylene (MAPP) has been well established as a compatibilizer for wood-PP composites (Woodhams et al.
Tego LA-D 903 90% active compatibilizer is suitable as a co-dispersing additive for the production of universal pigment concentrates.
In this context, the current study aims to assess the effect of chemical treatment of CFs with sodium hydroxide, at different concentrations, on the mechanical properties and morphology of CF reinforced PP composites, with and without compatibilizer (henceforth referred to as compatibilized and non-compatibilized composites, respectively), to verify how modifications in fiber surface and roughness, imparted by delignification, affects adhesion.
It is also said to be an effective compatibilizer and scavenger in the manufacture of virgin polymer blends and engineering plastics and in recycling of mixed plastics.
The maleic anhydride functionality of these Xeran copolymers and terpolymers is said to make them extremely suitable as a compatibilizer and coupling agent in many applications.
Furthermore, they compared the toughening effects of three different elastomers on Nylon 1010 [13], They revealed that EVM had the best toughening effect on Nylon 1010 in the absence of compatibilizer were added.
