PREPARATON OF MASTERBATCH CONTAINING ANTI-OXIDATION ADDITIVE: EFFECT OF CARRIER RESIN RATIO AND ADDITIVES CONTENT
Keywords:anti-oxidation master batch, carrier resin, LDPE, LLDPE.
In this article, we investigated effect of carrier resin ratio and anti-oxidation additives content on properties of anti-oxidant additives Masterbatchs (MBs). The characteristics were measured by: melt flow index (MFI), morphology (SEM), tensile strength and elongation at break. The results indicated that: increasing LLDPE content in carrier resin led to decreasing mechanical properties, MFI weren’t uniform in MBs. With 80/20 of LDPE/LLDPE ratio, the tensile strength and elongation at break values were highest (21.0 MPa, 680.5 %). In addition, when increased anti-oxidant additives content, mechanical properties increased to upper limit value, then decreased. With 25 wt.% of anti-oxidant additives, the tensile strength and elongation at break values were highest (21.0 MPa, 654.7 %), MFI were uniform in MBs (12 g/10 m). SEM images were evidence of greatly distribution in sample containing 25 wt.% additives. Consequently, the 90/10 of LDPE/LLDPE ratio, 25 wt.% anti-oxidant additives were selected to prepare MBs.
