|Title:||Rheological studies on mineral wool fibre reinforced PP/HDPE blend|
Vashishtha, S R
|Abstract:||Mineral wool (MW) fibre reinforced polypropylene (PP)/high density polyethylene (PP/HDPE) blends have been developed by varying mineral wool fibre loading ranging from 5 to 15 wt%. Rheological data on reinforced blends are obtained by using a capillary rheometer at 220°C in shear rate ranging from I to 103 s-1. It has been found that incorporation of mineral wool fibre in to PP/HDPE blends increases the melt viscosity and reduces the recoverable shear strain (SR). Also, the shear rigidity (G) increases with the increase of mineral wool fibre loading.|
