Thermoplastic elastomers are materials, which combine the properties of vulcanized rubbers under ambient conditions with the processing versatility of thermoplastics. This thesis describes a study into the morphology and mechanical properties of thermoplastic elastomers based on blends of polypropylene with two different rubbers. The first rubber is EPDM and the corresponding blends are commonly known as EPDM/PP dynamic vulcanizates (TPVs).
