Abstract

The characteristics of particulate filled thermoplastics are determined by four factors: Compo nent (filler and polymer) properties, composition, structure, and interfacial interactions. The most important filler characteristics are particle size and distribution, specific surface area, and particle shape, while the main matrix property is stiffness. Segregation, aggregation, and the orientation of anisotropic particles determine structure. Interfacial interactions lead to the formation of a stiff interphase, considerably influencing properties. Interactions are changed by surface modification that must always be system specific and selected according to its goal. Under the effect of external load, inhomogeneous stress distribution develops around heteroge neities, which initiates local micromechanical deformation processes determining the macro scopic properties of the composites. Large quantities of fillers are used in specific applications in polyethylene (PE), like in breathable films and plastic paper, while the main reinforcement of PE is wood. These topics will be presented in this chapter.
