PC (Poly Carbonate) was blended with EPDM (5%-20%) (wt%) using a Twin Screw Compounding extruder. Test specimens were made by using an injection molding machine. The mechanical properties such as Tensile strength, Flexural strength were determined and found to be decreasing. The impact strength, Izod notched, was increased to about 200%. The arc resistance was increased to about 300%. Electrical properties such as Dielectric strength, Volume resistivity and surface resistivity were also improved.
