Evaluation of the Thermal Stabilization Effect of the Bis (Mercaptoethanol Oleate) Dimethyl Tin on Polyvinyl Chloride


Article Preview

Bis (mercaptoethanol oleate) dimethyl tin was synthesized and added to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with various ratios. Specimens were prepared by mixing and rolling through a double-roller mixer, and their static thermal stabilities were estimated by the oven static thermal aging experiments. The influence of the bis (mercaptoethanol oleate) dimethyl tin on the dynamic thermal stability of PVC was tested through a haack torque rheometer (HAAKE PolyLab QC). The tensile strength and rate of elongation at break of the PVC specimens were evaluated by a servo-controlled tensile testing machine. The results show that the bis (mercaptoethanol oleate) dimethyl tin has excellent static and dynamic thermal stabilization effect on PVC, and to some extent, can improve the breaking elongation rate the PVC sample.
