    • Abstract


      Different volume fractions of polycarbonate (PC) were incorporated to improve thermal stability of red mud (RM) filled polypropylene (PP). Effects of PC addition in RM filled PP on shear stress, melt viscosity, and melt elasticity have been determined under different shear rates by using a capillary rheometer. With the increase in shear rate, addition of PC in RM-filled PP reduced its shear stress and melt viscosity. However, recoverable shear strain increased with PC content in the blend.
