The rheological behaviour and mechanical properties of the polycarbonate/high density polyethylene/glass fiber (PC/HDPE/GF) composites have been studied, along with fiber-resin interface behaviour. Maleic anhydride grafted low density polyethylene (LDPE-g-MAH) was used as a compatibilizer in the composites. A study of the glass fiber-resin interface by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and by etching techniques indicated that the dispersed phase polymer in the composites preferentially adhered…
