Abstract

The effect of zinc oxide (ZnO) and zinc borate (ZnHBO3) on the mechanical properties of high density polyethylene (HDPE) was investigated. Composites of HDPE with zinc oxide and zinc borate were prepared by melt mixing in a twin screw extruder and then the composites were molded by compression molding method. Filler contents in the HDPE were 5, 10 and 15 wt%.
