Abstract

There is very severe difference of tear property of polyethylene blown films observed depending on the location of tear sampling sometimes. Tear values of some polyethylene blown films are very scattered, and those data are statistically meaningless. Especially, it is known that the formation of haze bands can affect the tear property of polyethylene blown films. So, in this study, for understanding of the variation of tear property of polyethylene blown films, various scientific analyses based on both of fracture mechanics (for macroscale) and materials science (for microscale) are used to analyze the effect of haze bands of polyethylene blown films.
