[en] The abiotic UV-degradation behavior of oxodegradable LDPE was investigated in the presence of
thermoplastic pea starch (TPPS) in this study. Oxodegradable LDPE was first melt-blended with thermoplastic pea starch (TPPS) using an internal mixing chamber to enhance the abiotic oxidative degradation of oxodegradable LDPE. Because of their different affinity,
maleated polyethylene was added as compatibilizer. Tensile properties, thermal properties, and morphology of resulting melt-blends were determined at different content in TPPS. High content in TPPS (40 wt %) could be readily added to oxodegradable LDPE without affecting
the tensile properties of resulting melt-blends. UV-ageing studies on compatibilized TPPS/oxodegradable LDPE melt-blends were carried out by Attenuated Total Reflectance infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR), Dynamic Thermomechanical Analyses (DMTA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) under abiotic conditions. These results suggested a synergistic effect on the UV-ageing of TPPS-based melt-blends provided by both
components during the first stage of UV-irradiation.
