The present invention relates to a polyethylene molding compositions with a multimodal distribution of molar masses, which is particularly suitable for producing protective coatings on pipes, as well as to a method for producing such a molding composition in the presence of a catalytic system containing a catalyst of the Ziegler and socialization, through a multi-stage sequence of reactions involving successive stages of polymerization.
Polyethylene is widely used in industry, in cases where, to ensure a long life time even at elevated temperatures requires a material with high mechanical strength and high resistance to thermal-oxidative degradation. For such applications it is an advantage if the polyethylene moulding composition has a low permeability for water vapor and oxygen, as in this case, the steel tube is then effectively protected from corrosion when in contact with moisture and air. In addition, the special advantages of polyethylene are good chemical resistance, low own weight and the fact that this material is easy to process in the melt.
In WO 97/03139 described based on the polyethylene coating composition having a bimodal distribution of molar masses, suitable for receiving coating the metal pipe and which is covered with the substrate increased resistance against corrosion, oxidative aging, the influence of weather conditions of all types and mechanical stress.
Known plastic molding compositions with unimodal distribution of molar masses are characterized by defects in the region of their processability, resistance to decay when exposed to environmental and mechanical strength. Molding compositions with a bimodal distribution of molar masses represent a technical improvement compared to compositions with unimodal distribution. They are more easily processed and have (as indicated by the density) increased ratio of stiffness/resistance to decay under the action of the environment.
Thus, the present invention was to develop a polyethylene molding composition which retains high technology, but with significant advantages relative resistance to decay under the action of the environment and resistance to mechanical loads, particularly at temperatures below 0°C.
This problem is solved by means mentioned in the beginning of the molding compositions of the General type, the distinctive feature of which is that it contains from 45 to 55 wt.% low molecular weight homopolymer ethylene And 30 to 40 wt.% high molecular weight copolymer of these is Jena and another olefin, containing from 4 to 8 carbon atoms, and from 10 to 20 wt.% ultracytochemical copolymer of ethylene, where all percentages are given relative to the total weight of the molding composition.

High molecular weight copolymer b contains a proportion of additional units of olefin monomer containing from 4 to 8 carbon atoms, namely from 5 to 8 wt.%. Examples of such comonomers are 1-butene, 1-penten, 1-hexene, 1-octene and 4-methyl-1-penten. Ultrasonometry copolymer of ethylene With a similar image contains one or more of the above-mentioned comonomers in amounts in the range from 7 to 11 wt.%.

Trimodality as a measure of the positions of the centers of gravity of three individual distributions of molar mass can be described by using the viscosity number VN in accordance with ISO/R 1191 polymers formed at successive stages of polymerization. The width of the bands of the polymers formed in the individual stages of the reaction, the following:
The viscosity number VN1measured for the polymer after the first stage polymerization, identical to the viscosity number VNAlow-molecular-weight polyethylene and according to the invention is from 70 to 90 cm3/year
The viscosity number VN2measured for the polymer after the second stage polymerization, does not correspond to VNBrelatively high molecular weight polyethylene formed in the second stage of polymerization, which can only be calculated mathematically, but corresponds to the number of the viscosity of the mixture of polymer a and polymer Century According to the invention VN2is in the range from 150 to 180 cm3/year
The viscosity number VN3measured for the polymer after the third stage polymerization, does not correspond to VNCultracytochemical copolymer, formed at the third stage polymerization, which similarly can only be calculated mathematically, but corresponds to the number wask the particular mixture of the polymer And, polymer and polymer C. According to the invention VN3is in the range from 260 to 340 cm3/g, in particular from 280 to 320 cm3/year

Polymerization is a three-stage, i.e. it is carried out in three successive stages, with each stage molar mass is regulated by the addition of hydrogen.
In addition to polyethylene polyethylene molding composition according to the invention may further contain additional additives. These include, for example, stabilizers, antioxidants, UV absorbers, light stabilizers, metal decontamination officers, compounds, decomposing peroxide, basic co-stabilizers in the amount of from 0 to 10 wt.%, preferably from 0 to 5 wt.%, as well as fillers, reinforcing materials, plasticizers, lubricants, emulsifiers, pigments, optical brighteners, flame retardants, antistatics, blowing agents, or combinations of these compounds, in a total amount of from 0 to 50 wt.% with respect to the total weight of the mixture.

Reducing the time to failure is achieved by reducing the time of crack initiation by applying a cut (blade to 1.6 mm) in ethylene glycol as a medium, inducing cracking when exposed to the environment at a temperature of 80°C and the stress at elongation of 3.5 MPa. Getting samples is performed by cutting out three samples of size 10×10×90 mm from the pressed plate thickness of 10 mm On centers of the samples in turn cause cuts when using a blade in the apparatus of self-constructed for this purpose (Figure 5 in publication). The depth of cut of 1.6 mm
