Blends of Nylon 12 and High Density Polyethylene were prepared
and their phase structure and physical properties evaluated. The
mechanical properties and the unexpectedly low densities of certain
blends were explained in terms of differential shrinkage of the
phases. No evidence for compatibility was found, even on a limited
scale; in fact, the interfacial adhesion of the blends was shown to
be very low indeed. [Continues.]
