    Abstract

    Electron-beam (EB) irradiation technique has been used to improve the properties of 60/40 blends of NR/LLDPE in the presence of compatibilisers such as LNR-6 and LNR-16. Improvement in the physical properties of the blend correspond with the increase in the interactions created by EB irradiation as measured by gel content. For this blend ratio, the radiation dose of 200kGy is found to be optimum. While LNR-6 shows some complimentary effects when it is used together with EB irradiation technique; LNR-16, however, causes an imperfection effect in the blend. The crosslinking process that takes place as a result of EB irradiation occurs at the expense of crystalline arrangement of the semi-crystalline LLDPE. For the morphological fixation purposes EB irradiation technique is found to be very effective.
