The prospects for the use of polymer-polymer mixtures based on corn starch as alternative thermoplastic materials to polyolefins are considered. Rheological curves have been obtained, which confirm the possibility of processing such mixtures on standard equipment into products. It is shown that the starch content in polymer-polymer mixtures can reach 90 mass percent. Compared to existing biodegradable polymers, plasticized starch-based material is in no way inferior to them in terms of processability. Studies of the mechanical properties of polymerpolymer mixtures based on corn starch have been carried out. The data obtained indicate the possibility of using the developed composites as packaging materials, as well as alternative materials to known bioplastics and synthetic polymers.
