Abstract

In this paper, glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) is grafted to low-density polyethylene (LDPE) with radical initiators by reactive extrusion process in a twin screw extruder. By means of FTIR and element analysis spectra, the grafted product is analyzed. Studied in detail are the effects of reaction temperature, screw speed, initiator concentration, and the amount of GMA on the percentage of grafting. The influence of grafting procedure on gel content is also investigated. On the other hand, the polyethylene grafted glycidyl methacrylate (PE-g-GMA) prepared in this manner is evaluated as a compatibilizer for the polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)/PET alloy and the PPS/nylon/glass fiber composite.
