DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.1993.468


The methods of preparation of polyolefin waxes and fields of their applications were reviewed. The process of manufacturing polypropylene waxes elaborated at the Institute of Heavy Organie Synthesis was presented. It comprises thermal degradation of isotactic polypropylene in the medium of molten polypropylene wax and an optional successive grafting of the product with maleic anhydride. Some properties of the thus-prepared polypropylene waxes were determined and compared with those of the similar Polish and foreign products.
