Abstract

The mechanical properties of the self-reinforced polyethylene increase due to the formation of a shish-kebab structure. Thermal analysis demonstrated that high-strength-PE has a heat deflection temperature 20‡C higher than normal PE. The DSC analyses showed that the presence of a crystalline structure exhibits high thermal stability. This structural form does not relax at high temperatures as is shown by the fact that upon re-crystallization there were enough stable nuclei to build a similar crystalline structure.
