Abstract

A new processing method to compatibilization called solid state shear pulverization is applied to unmodified polymer blends. This process is environmentally friendly that can be used to produce powder from both virgin and commingled polymeric waste feedstocks in an industrially applicable manner. In the process a chain scission can occur and this scission as well as the changes in macroscopic properties of the blends provides an indication of the compatibilizing effects of the intimate mixing from the solid state shear pulverization.
