Abstract The melt spinning behavior of electron-irradiated polypropylene (PP) and PP/ethylene-octene-copolymer (EOC) blends was studied. The low ability to fiber formation of the impact enhanced PP/EOC blends with 2.5·mass percent of high viscous and non-spinnable EOC rubber was enhanced to a large extent by applying a dose of 6·kGy using a continuous electron induced reactive processing (CEIReP). The influence of structure alteration during CEIReP on the fiber formation as well as the textile physical properties of as-spun blend fiber were explored. A remarkable enhancement of the initial modulus as well as the linear elastic region of CEIReP modified PP/EOC blend fiber were achieved.<br /><br /><br />Read More:
