  • Publication number: 20220403151
    Abstract: A polyethylene copolymer blend consisting essentially of (A) an ethylene/unsaturated carboxylic ester bipolymer and (B) an ethylene/unsaturated carboxylic ester/carbon monoxide terpolymer. The polyethylene copolymer blend is defined by constituents (A) and (B) and at least one omitted material that would have otherwise restricted a physical property of the blend. The (A) ethylene/unsaturated carboxylic ester bipolymer is defined by features comprising choice of unsaturated carboxylic ester, unsaturated carboxylic ester comonomeric content in weight percent (wt %), and bipolymer melt index (I2; 190° C., 2.16 kg) in grams per 10 minutes (g/10 min.). The (B) ethylene/unsaturated carboxylic ester/carbon monoxide terpolymer is defined by features comprising choice of unsaturated carboxylic ester, unsaturated carboxylic ester comonomeric content in wt %, carbon monoxide comonomeric content in wt %, and terpolymer melt index (I2; 190° C., 2.16 kg) in g/10 min.

  • Publication number: 20220267578
    Abstract: The polymer blend includes at least 90% by weight low density polyethylene (LDPE) polymer and from 1% to 10% by weight acid copolymer based on the total weight of the polymer blend. In the polymer blend, the LDPE polymer has a melt index (I? 2#191) from 2 g/10 min to 8 g/10 min as determined in accordance with ASTM D1238, and a molecular weight distribution from 5 to 10.5. In the polymer blend, the acid copolymer is a polymerized reaction product of: at least 60% by weight ethylene, based on the total weight of the monomers present in the ethylene acid copolymer; from 1% to 20% by weight monocarboxylic acid monomer, based on the total weight of the monomers present in the ethylene acid copolymer; and from 0 to 20% by weight alkyl acrylate monomer, based on the total weight of the monomers present in the ethylene acid copolymer.

  • Patent number: 6545091
    Abstract: Polyethylene-based adhesive compositions which contain as little as 5 weight percent, and up to 35 weight percent of an acid-grafted metallocene polyethylene have superior peel strength to comparable compositions containing an acid grafted non-metallocene polyethylene. Compositions where the acid-grafted metallocene polyethylene component is based on a metallocene polyethylene having a melt-flow ratio of less than 6.53 and an Mw/Mn of greater than the melt flow ratio less 4.63 are as good adhesive compositions as those based on metallocene resins falling outside these parameters.
