The tensile behavior of unfilled and 40 w% talc-filled polypropylene has been determined at four different temperatures (21.5, 50, 75 and 100°C) and three different strain rates (0.05, 0.5 and 5 min -1 ). Experimental results showed that both unfilled and talc-filled polypropylenes were sensitive to strain rate and temperature. Stress-strain curves of both materials were nonlinear even at relatively low strains. The addition of talc to polypropylene increased the elastic modulus, but the yield… CONTINUE READING
