Abstract

The effects of the filler size and the filler content on the tensile yield behaviour of glass bead filled low density polyethylene (LDPE) composites have been investigated employing an INSTRON materials tester at room temperature. The results show that the influence of the concentration and diameter of glass beads on the tensile yield stress and strain at yield state of the composites is insignificant. It indicates that the interfacial adhesion between the filler and the LDPE matrix is good.
