The demand trend in the Oligomers business was solid, with tight markets for octene and strong demand for PAO, particularly from the automotive sector.
They say this is why we are seeing expansions in octene PE capacity, including Nova's second Advanced Sclairtech plant.
In our previous work [16] it was shown that functionalization of multi-walled carbon nanotubes with imidazolium ionic liquids allows greater increment of mechanical stiffness and thermal stability of ethylene-octene copolymer with high octene co-monomer content (38%) based composites in comparison to systems containing neat multi-walled carbon nanotubes.
In 1983, DuPont made a significant change in the PE resin, switching from a butene comonomer to an octene comonomer.
The GC-MS of the resulted gases showed that they entirely consist of Hexene, Butene, Octene and a few other hydrocarbon gases (mostly unsaturated).
Carbon and Alloy films are made from a blend of Octene and Henxene polymers and are produced using state of the art extrusion machinery which enables a seven layer bonded pallet wrap to be produced whereas traditional films have only three layers.
The ethylene-octene copolymer (EOC) with 45 wt% of octene content (ENGAGE 8842) was purchased from Dow Chemicals.
These figures describe differential [alpha]-olefin comonomer efficiency (octene > butene > propylene) for adjusting interfacial tension, with a similar trend in low temperature performance at comparable crystallinity.
With an eye to the potential that the Chinese market holds, Sasol is also increasing octene production from Secunda in Mpu-malanga by 100,000 tons a year.
Migrants examined in the tests included octene, styrene, limonene, bisphenol A (BPA), diphenyl butadiene (DPBD) and triclosan.
Ethylene-octene copolymer of Engage[R] 8200 trademark with octene content 38 wt% (density 0.870 g/[cm.sup.3], melt flow index 5.0 dg/min at 190 [degrees]C/2.16 kg) was supplied by the Dow Chemicals Company (Midland, Michigan, USA).
