Abstract Blends of poly(tetrafluoroethylene)/polyamide (PTFE/PA) were prepared to combine the good processing properties of PA with the excellent sliding properties of PTFE. For the compatibilizing of the immiscible components the chemical reaction of functional groups of modified PTFE (micro powder produced by electron irradiation in air) and polar PA during a reactive extrusion process was used. The parameter influencing the efficiency of the <I>in-situ</I> reaction between both components were varied.
