We show that the addition of solid particles to droplet–matrix blends of immiscible polymers induces massive changes in the rheology and the flow-induced structure even at loadings as low as 0.1 vol. %. Experiments were conducted using blends of polyethylene oxide (PEO, dispersed phase), polyisobutylene (PIB, continuous phase), and 470 nm monodisperse… CONTINUE READING
