Rapid test methods for analyzing degradable polyolefins with a pro-oxidant system
2001 (English)In: Journal of Applied Polymer Science, ISSN 0021-8995, E-ISSN 1097-4628, Vol. 79, no 12, 2309-2316 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Chemiluminescence, size exclusion chromatography, differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetry, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy were used to assess differences in oxidation rate between two different pro-oxidant systems in degradable low-density polyethylene. The pro-oxidant formulation used consisted of manganese stearate and natural rubber or manganese stearate and a synthetic, styrene-butadiene copolymer rubber. The low-density polyethylene containing the prooxidant with natural rubber showed the highest degradation rate. Chemiluminescence and thermogravimetry were found to be the most effective techniques for establishing the differences between different pro-oxidant systems.
