Abstract

The temperature at which densification ends for a range of blends comprising a metallocene catalysed medium density polyethylene (PE) in two different physical forms (powder and micropellets) were investigated using a novel data acquisition system (TP Picture®), developed by Total Petrochemicals [1]. The various blends were subsequently rotomoulded and test specimens prepared for mechanical analysis to establish the relationship between densification rate and bubble size / distribution on the part properties. The micropellets exhibited more rapid bubble removal times than powder.
