In this work, HDPE/PC binary polymeric blends has been made by using the single
screw extruder machine .
The tensile strength measurements showed that this blend have higher
results reflects the homogeneity of the mixture and higher strength
compared with that of single material the strength like HDPE or PC alone
and these values increase when blending with ratio (80/20) of (HDPE/PC);
and increase more when reinforcing with E-glass fibers (1%). Also in the
compressive strength increases for blends of (80/20%) (HDPE/PC)
furthermore, a composite of these blends with E-glass fiber these values
are increased more .
