Extrusion blown films from Polyamide waste/metallocene linear low-density polyethylene (PAW/mLLDPE) blend based matrix system and calcium carbonates particles were successfully produced and characterized. Also, the effect of the extruder temperature used during twin-screw compounding, the coupling agent loading and PA loading on the mechanical properties of the obtained films were studied. The key aspect of the present study was in investigating the optimal combination of factors by using Design of Experiment (DOE) approach. The responses measured were the tensile strength in the machine direction (MD) and the tensile strength in the transverse direction (TD). Among the selected processing parameters, the coupling agent and the interaction between the coupling agent and the PA loading have the most important influence on the tensile strength.
Key words: PA-W/mLLDPE composites / blown film extrusion / Design of Experiment (DEO) / tensile test
