Abstract

Rotational molding is a plastic processing technique wherein a privilege of stress-free plastic product is obtained. LLDPE is widely preferred as it possesses favorable flow property as needed for rotational molding process. But when the criteria of strength are applicable, therein particle reinforcements into LLDPE deliver significant results. Glass fiber and confiber are the additives opted for particulate reinforcement in LLDPE for rotational molding process in the present study. Among the numerous analysis procedure, melt flow index (MFI) test is considered as the primary investigation to verify flowability of raw material. For rotational molding process, MFI value is considered in the range of 3–8 g/10 min. An attempt is made to confirm if the range is satisfied for LLDPE/glass fiber blend and LLDPE/confiber blend by mixing in different ratios. From the experimental results, 22% by weight of glass fiber/LLDPE and 34% by weight of confiber/LLDPE were found to be optimum blend which yields better processability.
