Abstract: The microencapsulated red phosphorus (MRP) filled polypropylene (PP) composites were prepared using a twin-screw extruder. The effects of load and temperature on the extrudate swell behavior of the PP/MRP composite melts were investigated by means of a melt flow indexer. The test temperatures and loads were varied from 180 to 205°C and from 2.16 to 12.5 kg, respectively. The results showed that the die-swell ratio (B) of the composite melts increased roughly linearly with increasing load while decreased slightly with a rise of test temperature. The sensitivity of the die-swell ratio of the composite melts to load was significant. When the test temperature or load was constant, the values of the B of the composite melts decreased slightly with increasing MRP weight fraction. The findings can provide useful information for processing of these composites.
