Modified high-density polyethylene films: preparation, composition and their physical properties


To prepare high-density polyethylene (HDPE) films with excellent mechanical properties and lower haze, HDPE was modified by using linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and polypropylene (PP), and their characterizations were performed by melt index, light transmittance/haze, dart impact and elongation at break, infrared (IR) spectra, scanning electron microscopy image and IR image analyses. The results showed that the modifying effect of the 10% PP/30% LLDPE/60% HDPE composition was the best; the haze was reduced 6% and the translucency, dart impact strength, elongation at break and tensile strength were increased 1, 27.3, 29.4 and 1.0%, respectively. The blend of 10% PP/30% LLDPE/60% HDPE had good compatibility, and PP, LLDPE and HDPE were only the physical entanglement, and no chemical reaction, the modified HDPE films can partly replace polyvinyl chloride and LLDPE films.
