Time controlled photo-oxidation of polyolefins by polymer bound additives. By Shahida Islam. Abstract. A variety of iron compounds containing vinyl or thiol functional groups (used as photoactivators) have been synthesised and some of these were successfully bound to both polyethylene and polypropylene backbones during processing in the Author: Shahida Islam.

It seemed appropriate then to investigate the possibility of applying the polymer-bound antioxidant technology to time-controlled photo-activators. Two methods previously used for attaching antioxidants to polymers are adapted in this study to the covalent binding of typical metal-containing compounds to polyolefins 8, by: 9.

The photo-oxidation of PP is most effective at wavelengths between and nm. With increasing periods of radiation, the wavelength shifts to a range from to nm. Therefore, glass is able to prevent some effects of weathering.

Additives are absolutely essential in the development of commercial polymeric materials. Accordingly, an exhaustive control of composition and evolution in these additives over time is necessary to validate their performance and safety during their shelf life and, consequently, their ultimate applications.

Gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry, GC–MS, is described in the present. Polyolefin Soluble Polyisobutylene Oligomer-Bound Metallophthalocyanine and Azo Dye Additives February Journal of Polymer Science Part A Polymer Chemistry 52(4).

The degradation processes of the various types of polymer have specific mechanisms and depend on both the main macromolecular chain nature and structure and on the chemical nature of the branched groups. It is well known for the oxidation of polyolefins or rubber (natural and some synthetic types) that.

This article discusses photo-oxidation degradation (the behavior of polymers as a result of outdoor factors) and mainly concentrates on the photo-oxidative degradation of polyolefins and poly (vinyl) chloride.

Polymer photostabilization with ultraviolet screeners, quenchers, hydroperoxide decomposers, and radical scavengers is also described. The oxodegradation of an injection molding grade polypropylene (PP), formulated with 0%, %, and 3% w/w of a pro-oxidant additive, was studied.

Polymers will change over time when exposed to UV radiation. These changes are the result of light-induced homolytic fission of chemical bonds (photolysis) and photo-oxidation. The UV resistance of unprotected polymers varies widely and depends on the structure and composition. Photo-oxidation is the degradation of a polymer surface in the presence of oxygen or ozone.

The effect is facilitated by radiant energy such as UV or artificial light. This process is the most significant factor in weathering of -oxidation is a chemical change that reduces the polymer's molecular a consequence of this change the material becomes more brittle, with a.

In book: Long Term Properties of Polyolefins (pp) to measure faint light emissions and polymer chemiluminescence has become an important method to follow the initial stages in the. The curing process of a thermosetting polymer such as an epoxy is exothermic (heat releasing) and also registers in a DSC thermogram.

Oxidation is also exothermic and in polyolefins it tends to occur relatively quickly, releasing heat at a readily defined point in time.

Marine and inland pollution by non-degradable plastic bags and other plastic articles is a topic of great concern. Natural degradation processes based on oxidation of plastic pollutants could possibly contribute to limit the extent of pollution.

Thermal degradation of polyolefins in the absence of light by non-polluting pro-oxidants has not been presented before. In this study, we show that. Degradation of Plastics and Polymers D.

Brysdon, volume 2, pp –, Elsevier B.V. Both companies claim a cost advantage for their approach as compared with inherently biodegradable polymers (see PT, March'02, p. 50; Sept. '02, p. 66). On a cost-per-cubic-inch basis, they say, biodegradable copolyester and polylactic acid polymers are at least 10 times more costly than polyolefin additive masterbatches.

In the past, researchers thought the light spectrum was the main issue.

ISBN  Polyethylene and polypropylene are converted into billions of pounds of products every year by essentially every process used in plastics. They are low-cost materials that are also among the lightest materials in existence, therefore the cost per unit weight (lb or kg) gets even better when the calculation is made as cost per unit volume (in.³ or cm³).

Polyolefins float in the oceans, because they are normally lighter than salty water. They do not normally contain toxic ingredients, although toxic metals may be introduced as pigments.

Klender Chap DOI: /bach Publication Date (Print): May 5, About 3% by weight of carbon black adequately protects polyethylene against photo‐oxidation and, under accelerated test conditions, slightly inhibits thermal oxidation. As a rule small amounts of organic antioxidants are also added to the polymer for optimum protection.

When polymer degradation poses the key threat to physical property maintenance, restabilization is the prime solution. "By restabilizing, you can protect properties and go back into high-value applications," says Joseph Puglisi, director of polymer products at Ciba Additives.

Over the last 15 years, additive masterbatches (i. concentrates containing a higher level of additives dispersed in the parent polymer) have become very popular alternatives to pure additives and have found a very wide range of applications, e.

FRs, impact modifiers, antimicrobials, colour masterbatches, etc. Polyolefin materials, particularly polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), are susceptible to oxidation in the presence of air during long-term service. Oxidation may also be deliberately carried out during the manufacturing process, as a means of chain length control, or surface modification such as corona treatment (1, 2).

Biodegradation of polyethylene films with pro-oxidant additives. These results confirmed that the additive was necessary to obtain controlled degradation in the composites and the composites attained not only superior mechanical, thermal and Theological performance by the addition of additive, but also resulted in controlled photo-oxidation, which subsequently facilitates the biodegradation of the polymer.

Introduction. To reduce polymer waste and environmental pollution, the use of degradable polymers has been often stressed, and it is further beneficial, if the degradation can be tuned in accordance with needed service life [1, 2].High molecular weight and hydrophobicity of the commercial polyolefins hinder their direct biodegradation by microbes.

This degradation is sometimes termed "OXO-degradable", but this latter term describes only the first or oxidative phase of degradation and should not be used for. 24, articles and books.
