  • Patent number: 8476375
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for grafting hydrolysable silane groups to a polyolefin, comprising reacting the polyolefin with an unsaturated silane, containing an olefinic —C?C— bond or acetylenic —C?C— bond and having at least one hydrolysable group bonded to Si, or a hydrolysate thereof, in the presence of means capable of generating free radical sites in the polymer. The silane contains an aromatic ring or a further olefinic double bond or acetylenic unsaturation, the aromatic ring or the further olefinic double bond or acetylenic unsaturation being conjugated with the olefinic —C?C— or acetylenic —C?C— unsaturation of the silane. The unsaturated silane may also contains electron-withdrawing moiety with respect to the olefinic —C?C— or acetylenic —C?C— bond. The invention permits to provide a silane-modified polyolefin having a high grafting efficiency while limiting/preventing polymer degradation by chain scission.

  • Patent number: 8460770
    Abstract: Polymer compositions comprise a (i) silane-functionalized polymer, e.g., a polyethylene grafted with vinyl triethoxy silane, (H) polyfunctional alcohol e.g., ?,?,??,??˜tetramethyl-I,3-benzenediethanol and, optionally, (iii) acid, e.g., an alkylated aryl disulfonic acid. The use of polyfunctional alcohols in the absence of a strong acid yields a light-crosslinking of the silane-functionalized polymer and this, in turn, provides a polymer melt with improved extensional properties such as elongational viscosity and melt strength. The use of a polyfunctional alcohol in combination with a blocked strong acid provides a slow rate of crosslinking during melt processing and a high degree of ultimate crosslinking after the polymer composition has been shaped or molded.
