  • Publication number: 20060052511
    Abstract: Disclosed are compositions and shaped articles comprising or produced from the compositions. The compositions can comprise (a) at least one polypropylene polymer and (b) at least one E/X/Y copolymer wherein E comprises ethylene; X is a monomer such as vinyl acetate and alkyl (meth)acrylic esters; and Y is one or more additional comonomers such as carbon monoxide; sulfur dioxide; acrylonitrile; maleic anhydride; maleic acid diesters; (meth)acrylic acid, maleic acid, maleic acid monoesters, itaconic acid, fumaric acid, fumaric acid monoester, and salts thereof; glycidyl acrylate, glycidyl methacrylate, and glycidyl vinyl ether in which, based on the E/X/Y copolymer, X is from 0 to 50 weight %, Y is from 0 to 35 weight % of said, X and Y cannot both be 0%, and E is the remainder.

  • Publication number: 20050203232
    Abstract: Disclosed are oriented films, tapes, and melt-spun fibers prepared from compositions comprising (a) at least one polypropylene polymer; and (b) at least one ethylene copolymer such as ethylene/vinyl acetate dipolymers, ethylene/vinyl acetate terpolymers, ethylene/alkyl (meth)acrylate dipolymers, ethylene/alkyl (meth)acrylate terpolymers, functionalized ethylene copolymers, ethylene/acid copolymers, and salts thereof. The films, tapes and fibers exhibit improved tensile properties such as tensile strength and elongation at break compared to nonmodified polypropylene compositions. Also disclosed are woven, nonwoven and knitted textiles prepared from the oriented melt-spun fibers described, and methods for producing slit film fibers of the invention.
