The invention relates to the production of plastics based on industrial and domestic waste polyethylene used in the manufacture of various termoformovannyh products, films, used for the national economy (aprons for flower and vegetable seedlings, film for mulching and weed control with the effect of warming up), etc.

In severe ecological situation in the world, the use of biologically erodible polymeric materials for manufacture of products of mass consumption is a key priority to reduce the amount of solid waste, as will ensure their rapid decomposition under the action of climatic factors and microorganisms.

One of the possible ways of obtaining biologically decomposable material is a modification of traditional polymers. The combination of a synthetic polymer with natural active filler can give the material a new set of properties.

Such materials are filled system, where as the active filler is starch. Known low - and high-filled starch composition. The most important quality of these compositions is their ability to degradation under the influence of natural environmental factors: light, heat, microorganisms. Known biologically times usemy packaging material based on starch (France, 2691467, CL 5 08J 5/18, 65D 1/10, 65/46, 08L 3/20).

In the last time there was a significant number of patents and scientific publications containing information about the use of starch as a filler for imparting polymer compositions biological destructible

(U.S. patent 5248702, 08J 9/12, publ. T, No. 4;

U.S. patent 5208267, 08J 9/02, 9/12, publ. 03.05.2004 volume 1150, No. 1,

Company Archer Daniels Midland, USA, developed the concentrate of the brand PolyClean on the basis of polyethylene to obtain biodegradable films. The concentrate contains 40% starch and oxidized additive; the amount of starch in the final product is 5...6%. The disadvantage of this composition is that biological destruction undergoes only the starch component.

Closest to the technical essence and the achieved result of the present invention is the composition according to the patent of Russian Federation №2180670:

Product copolycondensation caprolactam,
adipic acid
and diamine1...10
Titanium dioxide20

A composition for the prototype requires the use of a plasticizer (water-glycerol mixture).

If the composition of the water processing technological scheme requires additional site drainage, increasing energy consumption.

The proposed solution simplifies the manufacturing technology of thermoplastic by excluding the use of liquid components, significantly reduces the cost of the finished product as a raw material for thermoplastic serve waste polyethylene (industrial and consumer).

In addition, it helps to protect the environment because the waste is not recycled and used again for the manufacture of various products.

The objective of the invention is the creation of a thermoplastic composition using biodegradable filler (waste of sugar industry), the product of which collapse under the action of light, moisture and soil microflora.

This is achieved by the fact that biologically erodible t is moplastic composition for products according to the invention contains waste polyethylene (60...89 wt.%), biodegradable filler, which is used as waste from the sugar industry, the sugar beet pulp (10...30 wt.%) and bentonite (1...10 wt.%).

According to the invention as a biodegradable filler, stimulating the process of biological destruction of the final products made from waste polyethylene, sugar beet pulp is used in an amount of 10 to 30 wt.%.

Used for filling the sugar beet pulp (rugged in chips insoluble desugared mass beet) has the following characteristics:

- pectin 50%;

- of cellulose and hemicellulose 47%;

protein 2%;

-ash 1%;

mass fraction of moisture, %, not more than 14.0;

- mass fraction of crude protein, %, not less than 7.0.

Technological additive was chosen to reflect the necessity of creating a homogeneous system. Bentonite is used as a dispersant, a substance that facilitates a uniform distribution of components in a polymer matrix by mixing (processing Technology of plastics and elastomers in the manufacture of polymeric film materials and artificial leather. Gpetrova, Closah, Justitie, M., "Kolos", 2008, 367 S.).

As the polymer binder used waste polyethylene production and household, having the following characteristics: particle (grit) different colors without mechanical note is this, the number of inclusions is not more than 10%mass fraction of moisture not more than 2%.

This composition has rheological characteristics that meet the requirements of materials for recycling on traditional for plastics equipment (extruder, molding).

Articles of the proposed compositions have specified performance characteristics, including biological destruction.

The choice of the optimal proportions of polymer and filler due to theoretical limit of the filling, which is determined by the strength of the interaction at the phase boundary.

According to the invention is optimal ratio of beet pulp - waste polyethylene" (10-30:60:89). The proposed composition is made as follows.

Example 1

30 mass parts of the beet pulp is mixed with 60 mass parts of waste polyethylene and 10 mass parts of bentonite in speed turbomachine within 5 minutes. The resulting mixture is fed to the extruder for homogenization. The temperature of the melt at the exit 140-160°C. the resulting Assembly is cooled by a stream of cold air and cut into granules with a size of 4-6 mm From the obtained pellets in the extruder with a slot die is used for the film or sheet from which molded articles of various sizes and thermop is statemate - different containers.
