Abstract

The tensile properties of 16 blends prepared from 12 different polymers were investigated in the whole composition range. The composition dependence of Young's modulus has shown less, while that of the yield and ultimate properties exhibited more significant variations with miscibility. The quantitative evaluation of the yield stress and tensile strength data resulted in a parameter, which could be related to the interfacial tension and miscibility.
