Polymer Bulletin - Metallocene Catalysts and Polymers

  • Published: September 2014
  • Smithers Information Ltd

This Polymer Bulletin is a current awareness service from the Polymer Library, the worlds largest database dedicated to polymer literature. Each time the abstracts database is updated with new records (approx. every two weeks) you will be sent a bulletin alerting you to any items that relate to metallocene catalysts or polymers.

The discovery of new catalytic systems based on metallocenes began a new era in polyolefins technology. Metallocene-based catalysts in comparison with conventional Ziegler-Natta systems offer higher versatility and flexibility for both the synthesis and the control of the structures of polyolefins. High density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (atatic, isotactic, syndiotactic etc.), polystyrene, ethylene-propylene-diene terpolymers (EPDM) are among the most remarkable products obtained. In rotational moulding, for example, metallocene PE grades promise a broader processing window, shorter cycle times, improved flow properties and potentially better warpage control. The metallocene market in 2000 has been estimated to be 6 million tons. To develop a sound market it is important for users to understand what advantages metallocene products will bring READ MORE >
