Title Towards quantifying interfacial adhesion in the ternary blends with matrix/shell/core-type morphology

Abstract We quantified interfacial adhesion in ternary blends with matrix/shell/core microstructure based on mechanical properties assessments. Various HDPE-based ternary blends containing PA-6/EVOH core/shell droplets were prepared by changing composition and processing temperature. The theoretical predictions of tensile properties were compared with experimental data; thereby considerable shift in experimental modulus from lower to upper limit observed over a 10°C increase in melting temperature. This confirmed the impact of blending temperature on matching the predicted values with experimental data. The meaningful trend observed in tensile characteristics of ternary blends simply gives an understanding of interfacial adhesion degree in ternary blend showing matrix/shell/core microstructure.
