Thermal stability and phase structure of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) based on post-consumer materials such as recycled lowor high-density polyethylene and ground tyre rubber (GTR) were investigated by using TG, DSC and DMTA analysis. Preliminary reclamation of GTR leads to enhancement of compatibility between polyethylene matrix and dispersed GTR particles.
