NEW PATENT APPLICATION FILED

March 2021

Graft Polymer has successfully submitted its patent application and was accepted by SIPO on 19th of March 2021 (Patent Number: P-202100047).

Patent Application № P-202100047- Method for production of modified polyolefin.

The present invention relates to the production of modified polyolefin. The method of modified polyolefin production is described. It includes inoculation with non-saturated carboxylic acid or anhydride of non-saturated carboxylic acid on polyolefin by exposing shear strain from 50 to 1000% at 60-100°C, characterized in that preliminary ozonized polyolefin is used as polyolefin.

The technical result is an increase in the degree of grafting of the monomer, an increase in pureness and adhesive properties of the final product within saving the physical and mechanical properties of initial polymers.
