Polymeric plasticizer doped in different weight percent poly (vinyl chloride) films was prepared by solution blending and solvent evaporation technique. The tensile properties of the doped films containing different weight percent of PVC/PEG were characterized using universal testing machine (UTM). Tensile strength and young’s modulus of blend films decreases and elongation at break increases compared to the pure PVC film. Phase morphology of polymeric plasticizer incorporated PVC films were investigated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
