Over the years the plastic industry is launching a variety several new polyolefin products, including metallocenebased
and bimodal polyethylenes and polypropylenes. Nevertheless the industry has matured quite considerably
over the past 30 years. In such a mature industry, there are still many incumbent products which have established
positions in existing markets. These products have been successful in meeting the most important needs in their
markets but there still remains areas where performance can be improved or where deficiencies exist. These
opportunities could encompass processing improvements, reduction of defects, reduced discoloration, or product
stewardship concerns. Successful attempts to make improvements upon these incumbent products seem to depend
from a technical stand point on two factors: a wide spectrum of products from which to choose (toolbox) and people
with knowledge of the chemistries and the technologies they will be applied to. This paper will describe two
examples of new approaches to base stabilization of polyolefins.
