Polypropylene (PP) is one of the three general plastics of considerable commercial importance. It is a semi-crystalline polymer, with good mechanical and thermal properties, corrosion resistance, low cost, easy processing, and low density. It has been used to make a variety of products. However, one of the drawbacks of PP is its poor impact performance, which limits its application in some fields. The investigation for improving the property of PP for industry production is important.
Polymer blends provide an effective way for improving the property of materials. To overcome the drawback of PP aforementioned, several elastomeric materials such as ethylene–propylene rubber (EPR), ethylene–propylene diene monomer (EPDM), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), and polystyrene–butadiene–styrene (SBS) are used as impact modifiers to compound with PP to enhance the impact resistance of PP [1, 2, 3]. Polyethylene-1-octene (POE) is one of the most effective impact...
