The melt flow index and oxidation induction period of low‐density polyethylene crosslinked with dicumyl peroxide (DCP) in the presence of tetrakis (methylene β‐3, 5‐di‐butyl‐4‐hydroxypheny1)‐propionate methane (Antioxidant 1010) were determined. The results suggest that there is a negative synergism between this crosslinking agent and antioxindant. Part of the antioxidant terminated the chain propagation by trapping radicals, and thus reduced the efficiency of crosslinking. The antioxidant efficiency…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
