Abstract

A polymer composition and fiber, film and fabric prepared therefrom. The composition contains (i) an acid neutralizing agent other than a metallic salt of a saturated or unsaturated fatty acid, (ii) a processing aid comprising a metallic salt of a saturated or unsaturated fatty acid, the metallic salt of a saturated or unsaturated being present in a maximum amount of 200 ppm, a stabilizer system containing (a) a phosphite selected from the group consisting of 2,2′,2″-nitrilotriethyl-tris(3,3′,5,5′-tetra-tert.butyl-1, 1-biphenyl-2,2′-diyl)phosphite and tris(2,4-di-tert-butylphenyl) phosphite; and (b) a N,N-dialkylhydroxylamine. Also disclosed is a method for preparing a polyolefin fiber, film or fabric which includes (A) incorporating the above additives into an olefin polymer, thereby producing a stabilized polyolefin polymer; and (B) extruding the stabilized olefin polymer through a die, thereby producing a olefin polymer fiber or film. A woven or non-woven fabric may be prepared from the olefin polymer fiber or film.

  1. 1. A polymer composition comprising an olefin polymer containing: (i) an acid neutraliing agent other than a metallic salt of a saturated or unsaturated fatty acid, (ii) a processing aid comprising a metallic salt of a saturated or unsaturated fatty acid, said metallic salt of a saturated or unsaturated being present in an amount of from 100 to 200 ppm, (iii) a stabilizer system comprising: (a) a phosphite selected from the group consisting of 2,2′,2″-nitrilotriethyl-tris(3,3′,5,5′-tetra-tert.butyl-1,1-biphenyl-2,2′-diyl)phosphite and tris(2,4-di-tert-butylphenyl) phosphite; and (b) a N,N-dialkylhydroxylamine.
  2. 20. A method for preparing a olefin polymer fiber or film, comprising: (A) incorporating the following additives into an olefin polymer: (i) an acid neutralizing agent other than a metallic salt of a saturated or unsaturated fatty acid, (ii) a processing aid comprising a metallic salt of a saturated or unsaturated fatty acid, said metallic salt of a saturated or unsaturated being present in an amount of from 100 to 200 ppm, (iii) a stabilizer system comprising: (a) a phosphite selected from the group consisting of 2,2′,2″-nitrilotriethyl-tris(3,3′,5,5′-tetra-tert.butyl-1,1-biphenyl-2,2′-diyl)phosphite and tris(2,4-di-tert-butylphenyl) phosphite; and (b) a N,N-dialkylhydroxylamine, thereby producing a stabilized polyolefin polymer, and (B) extruding said stabilized olefin polymer through a die, thereby producing a olefin polymer fiber or film.
