Results of an experimental investigation into changes of some mechanical characteristics of binary blends of high- and low-density polyethylenes with an elastomer (ethylene-propylene-dicyclopentadiene terpolymer) in the course of ?-radiation and chemical cross-linking are reported for a wide range of component ratios. Data on changes in the tensile strength and total, residual, and reversible strains at break, as well the microhardness and other characteristics are obtained. The effect of component ratio and cross-linking on these characteristics is discussed.
