The goal of this research is to develop environmental friendly polymer composites in order to reduce the use of current polymers and promote global security. High density poly-ethylene (HDPE) and poly-caprolactone (PCL) composites were mixed with varying amounts of poly-ethylene joined maleic anhydride (PE-g-MA) as a strong compatibilizer. The different composites were prepared using the conventional infusion shaping approach. Mechanical properties were accounted for to have good increase for the diverse compositions and the strength and pliable strain% (stretching) rate at break were improved in comparison to unadulterated HDPE. Examining electron magnifying lens (SEM) morphology revealed that the expansion of PE-g-MA increased the compability and so aided in the achievement of a synergistic mix of superior qualities.

The manure internment test yielded favorable bio-corruption results and demonstrated the fertilizer's ability to enable bio-debasement of various composites, allowing their utilization as key polymers in the assembly of single-use products and also protecting nature and acting as a decent waste administration of HDPE polymer.
