Abstract

This paper addresses the strong role that the rheology of blend components, under processing conditions, play in laminar dispersive mixing of polymer blends. From a practical point of view, if the dispersion mechanisms and rates of dispersion depend on the component rheology, then such knowledge can lead to the selection of advantageous mixing element designs and processing conditions. Some experimental findings using the Twin-Screw Mixing Element Evaluator (TSMEE) developed in the Polymer Mixing Study were reported earlier [1].
