Polar/non-polar Polymer Blends: On structural evolution and the electrical properties of PE and EVA blends

Date:
2005-2008
Themes:
Nanomaterials and Dielectrics, High Voltage Engineering, Solid dielectrics
Funding:
EPSRC

This project examines the structure and breakdown characteristics of a series of blends of polyethylene and an ethylene - vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA). The effect of adding a relatively polar copolymer composed of EVA , to a model polyethylene system is considered and relative electrical properties are studied.
