Abstract

Four different types of high-density polyethylenes were blended with expanded perlite at different compositions. Gamma-aminopropyltriethoxysilane was applied to perlite (2 wt%) from ether and water solutions to enhance the interfacial adhesion between the polymer and the filler. It was shown that silane treatment advances the yield stress with improving dispersion and increasing the interfacial adhesion of the filler with the polymer matrix. The experimental results were then checked with the expression of Turcsanyi et al.'s.
