Abstract A specially designed fish-tail shaped extrusion die was used to continuously extrude self-reinforcing sheet of HDPE/UHMWPE. The result indicated that under conventional extrusion conditions, the tensile strength of extruded sheet was comparable to conventional molded HDPE samples and was almost the same in both MD (machine direction) and TD (transverse direction) directions. While at temperatures slightly above the melting point of HDPE, compared with conventionally extruded sheet… CONTINUE READING
