The results of studies of the regularities and mechanism of crystallization of polymer mixtures of high and low-density polyethylene in various proportions and composite materials based on blends of high and low density polyethylene taken in a 50/50 ratio are given. In filled composites, aluminum hydroxide was used in concentrations of 1, 3, 5, 10% wt. and bentonite in concentrations of 1, 3, 5, 10, 20, 30% wt. Dilatometric studies were carried out on an IIRT-1 device, in the process of stepwise cooling of samples with a load of 5.3 kg.
