Abstract/Description: In order to create a polymer that has the morphology and structure to be used for industrial applications, the foamability of the PLA must be improved by blending. Blends were made in specific ratios of 80/20, 50/50, and 20/80. Next, the blends were extruded and injected into molds for testing. The mechanical and thermal properties of the blends were tested using the tensile test and the DSC. The morphology was also observed using the SEM. Finally, a series of stock materials were created to be used for melt-electrospinning or 3D printing.
