Copolymerization of butyl acrylate (BuA) with dimethyl‐meta‐isopropenylbenzyl isocyanate (TMI) was carried out at 40°C in microemulsions stabilized with a mixture of sodium dodecyl sulfate and sodium bis(2‐ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate (3/1 w/w). The mixture of monomers was dosed during...
The compatibilization of various poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) blends was investigated. The blend systems were PVC‐polyamide 12 (PA12), PVC‐polypropylene (PP), and PVC‐ethylene‐propylene‐diene rubber (EPDM) with a new compatibilizing agent, random‐block terpolymer...
The use of PVC in biomedical applications is often questioned, owing to the possible adverse effects that this material may have on human health. Blood is transported in dialysis devices through flexible plastic tubes that are usually made of PVC. The most common plasticizer, even for such...
Ultraviolet absorbers, such as those from the hydroxyphenylbenzotriazole and hydroxybenzophenone classes of compounds, are typically added to flexible PVC roofing membranes in order to protect the membranes during long‐term exposure to sunlight. In this article a radically new UV stabilizer, one...
Methods of recycling unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) window frame waste were investigated. The quality of untreated granular waste was compared to that of waste treated by a range of contaminant removal processes including melt filtration and dissolution. Processability of each recyclate...
Commercially available thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) based on block copolymers of diisocyanates and polyols (i.e., TPUEs) were used to delay sharkskin and stick‐slip instabilities in the extrusion of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). When TPUE is added in a small mass fraction to LLDPE,...
Owing to the importance of poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) as the second‐largest plastic in volume after the polyolefins and above styrene polymers, the control of the free‐radical polymerization of vinyl chloride (VC) is of high industrial and academic interest. But still the term “controlled”...
