Abstract The morphology of the dispersed phase in immiscible polymer blends can have a significant effect on the final may be omitted physical properties. Laminar dispersion of an ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (EVOH) with high oxygen barrier properties was obtained in the matrix of low density polyethylene (LDPE) when extruded through an annular blown film die. A large range of morphology was observed and indicated that the main factors determining the morphology of the blends were the… CONTINUE READING
