The article discusses several approaches to alter the properties of plastics raw materials. It is said that over one monomer in the polymeric repeat units is comprised by co-polymers. It enumerates the conventional processes that can be applied to thermoplastics elastomer (TPE) processing and states the potential of TPE to be recycled. The author says that the easy way to modify properties is through the chemical and physical mixture of two or more polymers with different structure.
