Abstract: The effect of silane coupling agent on the properties of recycled polyethylene (RPE)/chitosan biopolymer was investigated. The results indicated that the presence of silane coupling agent increase the tensile strength and Young’s modulus but decrease the elongation at break. The scanning electron microscope (SEM) micrograph of fracture tensile surface for treated RPE/chitosan biopolymer show better adhesion between filler and matrix. Silane coupling agent has been used to increase the compatibility between chitosan and recycled polyethylene, thereby enhancing the performance.
