RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application is a continuation-in-part of application Ser. No. 259,946, filed Oct. 19, 1988, now abandoned.

It is well know that polyolefins undergo progressive changes in their physical properties, including color changes, embrittlement and loss of mechanical properties, when exposed to sunlight or other sources of ultraviolet radiation. Retardation of these deleterious effects has been achieved utilizing a broad range of additives exhibiting light-stabilizing properties, such additives including benzophenones, benzotriazoles, substituted benzoic acid esters, nickle complexes, aromatic oxamides and sterically hindered amines.

The latter group of chemicals and their stabilizing activity in a wide variety of substrates are likewise well known and have been described in a broad range of patents and technical literature. In view of the extensive nature of such art, reference is made to U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,426,471, 4,426,472, 4,344,876, 4,590,231 and 4,691,015 for a summary of representative hindered amine light stabilizers. The last cited patent and U.S. Pat. No. 4,740,544, for example, as well as Journal of Polymer Science, Polymer Chemistry Edition, 22, 277-281 (1984) further disclose the presence of such hindered amine stabilizers in polyolefins.

It has now been determined that the polyolefin compositions of this invention exhibit a variety of desirable properties stemming from the presence therein of the indicated N-OR.sub.1 substituted hindered amines. Thus, the compounds serve to protect the polyolefins against the adverse effects of actinic, oxidative and thermal degradation. They provide increased antioxidant activity in polyolefins relative to corresponding NH derivatives. Thus, they serve to substantially reduce color formation and other degradative effects resulting from the processing conditions to which the polyolefins are subjected. They are especially effective in stabilizing polyolefins against the adverse effects of actinic stimuli relative to NH and NR derivatives. They also protect polyolefins against the gas fading that may be experienced upon exposure to the combination products of natural gas.

Of particular interest, the low basicity, chemically resistant substituted hindered amine compounds of the invention are exceptionally effective in fiber formulations wherein processing stability is required due to the stringent fiber extrusion conditions, in flame-retardant-containing polyolefins, in polyolefin applications requiring organosulfur compounds, e.g. thiosynergists, and in polyolefin applications for contact with or exposure to halogenated and/or sulfur containing compounds, e.g. pesticides, bleaching agents, disinfectants, and the like. Thus, it has been recognized that the prior art hindered amine compounds exhibit reduced effectiveness in the presence of organohalogenated flame retardants and thiosynergists, the latter products rendering the hindered amine uncapable of functioning as a photostabilizer.

This performance further allows for the effective use of such stabilized polyolefin in greenhouse film and swimming pool cover and liner applications. Other applications such as in geomembranes, geonets, geotextiles and geogrinds wherein the polyolefin is exposed to chemical wastes, acidic soil conditions, acid rain and landfill run off are likewise now available. The broad range of improved performance is also to be noted in other areas. For example, certain prior hindered amines tend to interact with pigments in pigmented polyolefin systems resulting in loss of pigment color yield and/or stabilizer effectiveness. Inasmuch as the active sites of the instant compounds are sterically blocked and essentially non-basic, interaction with pigments should be substantially reduced. Correspondingly, the catalysts utilized in newer polyolefin polymerization rection have tended to yield more corrosive resin systems. The instant compounds should likewise be expected to perform substantially better than standard hindered amine light stabilizers. Accordingly, these derivatives are seen to provide a broad range of improved performance characteristics relative to the known hindered amine derivatives.

The substituted hindered amine compounds applicable for use in this invention contain a group of the formula ##STR1## wherein R and R.sub.1 are as defined hereinafter. Some are known compounds while others are claimed in copending applications Ser. Nos. 259,950 and 259,956 all now abandoned.

The hydroxylamine derivatives of the instant invention are generally prepared by oxidizing the corresponding hindered amine with an appropriate peroxy compound such as hydrogen peroxide or tert-butyl hydroperoxide in the presence of a metal carbonyl or metal oxide catalyst followed by reduction of the oxyl intermediate formed to the desired N-hydroxy derivative, preferably by catalytic hydrogenation. Thereafter, the N-acyloxy derivatives are prepared by reacting the N-hydroxy hindered amine with the appropriate acid chloride, anhydride, isocyanate or substituted chloroformate. The catalytic hydrogenation can also be conducted in acetic anhydride to prepare the N-acetoxy derivative.

O-alkyl substituted N-hydroxy derivatives can be synthesized by several routes The N-hydroxy derivative can be alkylated with sodium hydride and halogenated hydrocarbons such as benzyl bromide and ethyl iodide. N-methoxy variants can be prepared by thermolysis of a chlorobenzene solution of nitroxyl radical and di-tert-butyl peroxide. The product is formed by a coupling reaction between the nitroxyl radical and methyl radical generated from .beta.-scission of a t-butoxy radical. Other N-alkoxy variants are synthesized by coupling nitroxyl radicals with hydrocarbon radicals generated from thermal decomposition of di-tert-butyl peroxide in the presence of hydrocarbon solvents such as cyclohexane, toluene, and ethylbenzene.

A preferred approach is the preparation of N-alkoxy hindered amines directly from hindered amines. For example, a mixture of 4-benzoyloxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine, aqueous t-butyl hydroperoxide, molybdenum oxide, and ethylbenzene gives a 90% yield of N-alpha-methylbenzyloxy HALS.

The oxalates of formula N can be prepared by reacting (1-hydroxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-4-yl)stearate, benzoate, and the like, with oxalylchloride, or for G.sub.1 being --NH--G'-NH by reacting the appropriate 1-hydroxy2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine with the appropriate diisocyanate.

The hindered amine precursors are large commercially available or can be prepared by known methods.

The polyolefins of the instant compositions are homopolymers or copolymers of an alpha-olefin.

The saturated polyolefins useful in the instant compositions are the polymers derived from monoolefins, such as polyethylene, which can be crosslinked, polypropylene, polyisobutylene, polybutene-1, poly-3-methylbutene-1 and poly-4-methylpentene-1. Polyethylene may be for example medium density, high density or linear low density polyethylene.

Mixtures of the homopolymers cited above, for example mixtures of polypropylene and polyethylene, polypropylene and polybutene-1-, or polypropylene and polyisobutylene and the like, may also be used.

Copolymers of monolefins may also be used in the instant compositions, for example ethylene/propylene copolymers, propylene-butene-1 copolymers, propylene/octene-1 copolymers, ethylene/butene-1 copolymers, ethylene/octene-1 copolymers as well as ethylene/vinyl acetate copolymers.

The instant compositions particularly employ as the polyolefin component polyethylene, polypropylene, polyisobutylene, poly(butene-1), poly(pentene-1), poly(3-methylbutene-1), poly(4-methylpentene-1) and various ethylene and propylene copolymers.

Especially preferred polyolefin substrates are polypropylene, low density polyethylene, medium density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, linear low density polyethylene, poly(butene-1), ethylene/vinyl acetate copolymer, ethylene/propylene copolymer and copolymers of ethylene or of propylene with higher alpha olefins.

The most preferred polyolefin substrate polypropylene, high density polyethylene, ethylene/propylene copolymer or a copolymer of ethylene or of propylene with another alpha olefin.

In general, the compounds of the present invention are employed in from about 0.01 to about 5% by weight of the stabilized polyolefin composition, although this will vary with the particular substrate and application. An advantageous range is from about 0.05 to about 2%, and especially 0.1 to about 1%.

The stabilizers of the instant invention may readily be incorporated into the polyolefins by conventional techniques, at any convenient stage prior to the manufacture of shaped articles therefrom. For example, the stabilizer may be mixed with the polymer in dry powder form, or a suspension or emulsion of the stabilizer may be mixed with a solution, suspension, or emulsion of the polymer. The stabilized polymer compositions of the invention may optionally also contain various conventional additives, such as the following.

Description



EXAMPLE 1

Light Stabilization of Polypropylene

Polypropylene powder (Hercules Profax 6501) stabilized with 0.2% octadecyl 3,5-di-tert.butyl-4-hydroxy hydrocinnamate antioxidant is thoroughly blended with 0.1% of additive. The blended materials are then milled on a two-roll mill at 182.degree. C. for 5 minutes, after which time the stabilized polypropylene is sheeted from the mill and allowed to cool. The milled polypropylene is then cut into pieces and compression molded on a hydraulic press at 250.degree. C. and 175 psi (1.2.times.10.sup.6 Pa) into 5 mil (0.127 mm) films. The sample is exposed in a fluorescent sunlight/black light chamber until failure. Failure is taken as the hours required to reach 0.5 carbonyl absorbance by infrared spectroscopy on the exposed films.

The general processing procedure of Example 1 is repeated utilizing 0.05%, by weight, of stabilizer of the instant invention and preparing 2 mil polypropylene stretched tape. The oxidation stability is then determined in a forced draft oven maintained at 115.degree. C. The stretched tapes are considered to have failed on showing the first signs of embrittlement.

These data thus indicate the benefits stemming from the substituent pattern of the instant compounds.

EXAMPLE 3

Light Stability in Flame Retardant Polypropylene

______________________________________ Base Formulation ______________________________________ Flame Retardant-containing Polypropylene* 100 parts Calcium Stearate 0.1 parts Antioxidant A 0.05 parts ______________________________________ *X27133-51-1 (from Hercules Corp.) containing 7 phr FRP 2055 (from PPG), the latter being a brominated Sb.sub.2 O.sub.3containing flame retardant.

The indicated amount of each stabilizer is solvent blended into the base formulation and extruded (one extrusion) at 260.degree. C. and pelletized. The pellets are then compression molded pursuant to the conditions described in Example 1 to form 5 mil film samples. The samples are then exposed in a Xenon Arc Weatherometer under dry conditions until failure as evidenced by a showing of the first signs of embrittlement.

______________________________________ Conc. Additive (% by wt.)

Resistance to Gas Fading of Polypropylene Fibers

______________________________________ Base Formulation ______________________________________ Polypropylene* 100 parts Calcium Stearate 0.1 parts Antioxidant A 0.2 parts ______________________________________ *Profax 6301 from Himont U.S.A.

Stabilizers are solvent blended into the polypropylene and extruded (one extrusion) and pelletized. The change in Yellowness Index is determined on the extruded pellets before exposure to gas fading at 60.degree. C. and after two cycles of exposure. Lower numbers indicate less yellowing and less color. The gas fading procedure is carried out in an AATCC gas fume chamber (Drum Model No. 8727) according to the standard procedure at AATCC Test Method 23, "Colorfastness to Burnt Gas Fumes."

The indicated amount of each stabilizer is solvent blended into the base formulation with the resulting blend being extruded at 220.degree. C. for compounding, pelletized and then injection molded at 204.degree. C. The injection molded plaques (5 cm..times.5 cm..times.125 mil) are placed in a forced air oven maintained at 150.degree. C. The plaques are considered to have failed on showing the first signs of embrittlement or surface crazing. Yellowness Index is also determined for the initial plaques and for the plaques at failure according to ASTM D1925.

______________________________________ Conc. Hours to YI Additives (% by wt.) Failure Initial Failure ______________________________________ -- -- 2905 8.2 79 B 0.15 1996 13.2 70 B 0.25 1913 12.5 62 D 0.15 2633 10.0 86 D 0.25 2748 9.7 93 71 0.15 3402 10.6 98 71 0.25 4740 11.6 118 72 0.15 2953 10.6 81 72 0.25 2844 11.4 83 ______________________________________

It is seen that during elevated temperature-aging, the instant compounds do not adversely affect the synergistic activity of DSTDP in polypropylene. In fact, in certain cases there is an enhancement of the antioxidant activity. This data thus confirms the availability of the compounds for use in applications involving sulfur-containing compounds.

EXAMPLE 6

Fiber preparation is accomplished by incorporating all additives and flame retardants into fiber grade resin (33 melt flow polypropylene) utilizing a 2.54 cm compounding extruder at 232.degree. C. The resulting pellets are extruded and spun at 241.degree. C. with a residence time of 6.5 minutes. The spun fiber is drawn in-line at a 4:1 ratio yielding a final fiber of 450/30 denier.

Performance evaluations are conducted on knitted fabric produced from the fiber samples. The fabrics containing the instant NOR compounds exhibit good stability as determined by color change and degradation criteria.

EXAMPLE 7

Greenhouse Film Application

All additives are incorporated into low density polyethylene (LDPE) and 150 .mu. films are blow extruded at 200.degree. C. Typical formulations contain various phenolic co-stabilizers and 0.15% NOR compound. The resulting films are exposed in a greenhouse on pinewood backing, galvanized iron backing, and without backing. Treatment includes application of pesticide on a monthly and six month basis. Performance is measured by monitoring % residual elongation during the exposure period. The films containing the instant NOR compounds exhibit good stability.
