Effect of EVA Content upon the Dielectric Properties in LDPE-EVA Films
Low density polyethylene (LDPE) blends with different percentages of ethylene vinyl acetate polymer membranes were prepared by a hot press casting method. The effects of EVA content on the electrical properties of LDPE were studied. The results on the electrical properties revealed that the surface resistance, volume resistivity, and breakdown voltage of the LDPE decrease with EVA content and reach a minimum at a 30 wt% of EVA. Dielectric constant and dielectric loss factor were increased with increasing EVA content up to 30 wt% of EVA. It can be deduced that the electrical properties of LDPE are improved by blending with EVA.
