For high dispersed component loading (40 wt%), CNTs seem to be always distributed in SEBS-MA dispersed phase within the entire CNTs content range used, and a simultaneously toughening and strengthening effect is achieved.
However, at higher shear rates (kneading elements in the extruder), this viscosity ratio must be lower than 1 at 200[degrees]C because of the higher pseudoplastic character of the dispersed phase (PE1) than that of PLA (see Fig.
The size of the dispersed phase domains of the corresponding blend is measured.
The high-shear processing technology, recently developed, is of particular interest, inducing strong shear stress to facilitate the homogenous dispersion of fillers and to achieve a better distribution and size reduction of the dispersed phase.

The filled polymers discussed are "macroscopically coherent masses that exhibit interesting physical, mechanical, and/or rheological properties, often peculiar, but always resulting from interactions taking place between a matrix (the polymer) and a dispersed phase (the filler).
In mixing two immiscible fluids in a stirred system, energy is transferred to the fluid by the stirrer and the energy serves to suspend the dispersed phase to create turbulence in the fluid.
