Description

Description

THERMOPLASTIC MOLDING COMPOSITIONS AND PROCESS

This invention relates to improved flame-retardant thermoplastic molding compositions and, more particularly, to improved thermoplastic polyester molding compositions and to a process for enhancing their electrical arc track resistance.

Background of the Invention. - High molecular weight linear polyesters and copolyesters of glycols and terephthalic or isophthalic acid have been available for a number of years. These are described inter alia in Whinfield et al., U.S. 2,465,319, and in Pengilly, U.S. 3,047,539, incorporated herein by reference. These patents disclose that the polyesters are particularly advantageous as film and fiber formers.

With the development of molecular weight control, the use of nucleating agents and two-step molding cycles, polyethylene terephthalate) has become an important constituent of injection-moldable compositions. Poly(1,4-butylene terephthalate), because of its very rapid crystallization from the melt, is uniquely useful as a component in such compositions.

Workpieces molded from such polyester resins, in comparison with other thermoplastics, offer a high degree of surface hardness and abrasion resistance, high gloss, and lower surface friction.

Recently, block copolyesters, wherein the major portion of the repeating units are poly(1,4-butylene terephthalate) blocks, have been found to have enhanced impact resistance. See copending application U.S. Serial No. 752,325, filed December 20, 1976. Enhanced impact resistance has also been reported when poly(l,4-butylene terephthalate) and block copolyesters have been combined with impact modifiers comprising resins, e.g., block copolymers of vinyl aromatics and dienes, in combination with aromatic polycarbonate resins and a mineral filler. Flame retardant such compositions are also known. See copending application, U.S. Serial No. 966,864, filed December 6, 1978.

Stable polyblends of poly(1,4-butylene terephthalate) and poly(ethylene terephthalate) can be molded into useful unfilled and filled articles. See Fox and Wambach, U.S. 3,953,394.

In general, poly(1,4-butylene terephthalate) resins are known to be suitable for combination with glass fiber reinforcement and/or flame retardant agents.

U.S. Patent No. 3,937,757 teaches that the electrical arc tracking resistance of unfilled poly(l,4-butylene terephthalate) compositions can be improved by the addition of from 5 to 50% by weight of a polyolefin or ethylene copolymer, containing at least 50% by weight ethylene units, thereto.

Copending application U.S. Serial No. 972,888, filed December 26, 1978, discloses that the arc track resistance of poly(1,4-butylene terephthalate) compositions can be improved by forming a combination of the polyester resin, a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate and a filler, and then post-reacting them.

The above-mentioned patents and applications are incorporated herein by reference. Unfortunately, however, the attempted use of flame retardant agents in such compositions causes a lowering of arc track resistance, and this is further lowered if such flame retardant modifications are further compounded with blends of a polyolefin or olefin copolymer and an aromatic polycarbonate, or poly(ethylene terephthalate), or glass fiber reinforcement.

It has now been discovered that if a mineral filler is included in such flame retardant modifications, in a controlled amount, there is a surprising improvment in arc track resistance (as measured by ASTM D-495 test) as compared with the corresponding non-mineral filled flame retardant blends. This discovery permits the use of such polyester compositions in such fields as parts for automotive electrical-systems, and the like.

Description of the Invention. - According to this invention, there are provided flame-retardant thermoplastic compositions which are useful for molding or extrusion, e.g., injection molding, injection blow molding, compression molding, trans.fer molding, profile extrusion, sheet extrusion, wire coating, extrusion blow molding and the like, the compositions having improved physical properties, such as impact resistance, and electrical properties, such as arc track resistance, the compositions comprising an intimate admixture of:

(a) a high molecular weight poly(1,4-butylene terephthalate) homo- or co-polyester, (b) (i) a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate in combination with an aromatic polycarbonate; (ii) poly(ethylene terephthalate); or (iii) reinforcing glass;

(c) a flame retardant agent; and

(d) a mineral filler. The high molecular weight poly(l,4-butylene terephthalates), preferably high molecular weight linear such polyesters, used in the practice of the present invention are polymeric 1,4butanediol esters of terephthalic acid and may include minor amounts of glycol esters of other difunctional acids, such as isophthalic, adipic, and the like. They are available commercially or can be prepared by known techniques, such as by the alcoholysis of esters of terephthalic acid with 1,4-butanediol and subsequent polymerization, by heating the diol with the free acids or with halide derivatives thereof, and similar processes. These are described in U.S. 2,465,319 and U.S. 3,047,539, and elsewhere.

The glycol portion of the polyester can contain minor proportions of the glycols from two to ten carbon atoms.

Illustratively, the high molecular weight poly(butylene terephthalate) (PBT) will have an intrinsic viscosity of at least 0.7 deciliters/gram as measured in a 60:40 phenol tetrachloroethane mixture at 30ºC. At intrinsic viscosities of at least about 0.9 deciliters/gram for PBT, there is a further enhancement in toughness of the present compositions.

Block copolyesters are also useful in the compositions of this invention. These are generally prepared by the reaction of terminally-reactive poly(butyleneterephthalate), preferably, low molecular weight, and a terminally-reactive copolyester or polyester in the presence of a catalyst for transesterification, such as zinc acetate, manganese acetate, titanium esters, and the like. The terminal groups can comprise hydroxyl, carboxyl, carboalkoxy, and the like, including reactive derivatives thereof. After initial mixing, polymerization is carried out under standard conditions, e.g., 220 to 280ºC, in a high vacuum, e.g., 0.1 to 2mm Hg, to form the block copolymer of minimum randomization in terms of distribution of chain segments. These copolyesters are described in copending U.S. application Serial No. 752,325, filed on December 20, 1976, incorporated herein by reference. For example, these block copolyesters are derived from

(i) a terminally-reactive poly(1,4-butylene terephthalate) and

(ii) a terminally-reactive aromatic/aliphatic copolyester of a dicarboxylic acid selected from the group consisting of terephthalic acid, isophthalic acid, naphthalene dicarboxylic acids, phenyl indane dicarboxylic acid and compounds of the formula:

Figure imgf000007_0001
in which X may be alkylene or alkylidene of from 1 to 4 carbon atoms, carbonyl, sulfonyl, oxygen or a bond between the benzene rings, and an aliphatic dicarboxylic acid having from 6 to 12 carbon atoms in the chain and one or more straight or branched chain dihydric aliphatic glycols having from 4 to 10 carbon atoms in the chain, said copolyester having at least 10% of aliphatic units being derived from a dicarboxylic acid, or (iii) a terminally-reactive aliphatic polyester of a straight chain aliphatic dicarboxylic acid having from 4 to 12 carbon atoms in the chain and a straight or branched chain aliphatic glycol, said blocks being connected by inter-terminal linkages consisting essentially of ester linkages;

As to component (b) (i), the copolymers of ethylene and vinyl acetate useful in the practice of this invention may be derived from two or more monomers. Thus, the term "copolymers" herein is intended to include terpolymers and so on. Illustrative copolymers of ethylene and vinyl acetate contemplated herein include, for example, Alathon 3892, now referred to as Alathon 3194 (25% by weight vinyl acetate, 75% by weight ethylene), Alathon 3152 (15% by weight vinyl acetate, 85% by weight ethylene), Alathon 3180 (287. by weight vinyl acetate, 72% by weight ethylene), Vynathene EY903 (45% by weight vinyl acetate, 55% by weight ethylene) and Vynathene EY904 (52% by weight vinyl acetate and 48% by weight ethylene). The Alathons are products of the DuPont Chemical Co. and the Vynathenes are products of U.S.I. Chemicals. Among the terpolymers useful herein are included, for example, those prepared from ethylene, vinyl acetate and carbon monoxide (ELVALOY 741 or 742, sold by DuPont), ethylene, vinyl acetate and methacrylic acid and ethylene, vinyl acetate and acrylic acid (ELVAX 4260 and 4355 available from DuPont), and the like. With further reference to component (b) (i) the aromatic polycarbonate resins can be made in known ways and they are available from commercially from sources, e.g., General Electric Company, Pittεfield, Massachusetts, under the trademark LEXAN. In general, any of the aromatic polycarbonates described in Baron et al., U.S. 4,034,016 can be used, especially those including units derived from bisphenol-A. With respect to component (b)(ii), the poly(ethylene terephthalate) resins can be made in known ways and they are available from commercial sources, e.g., Goodyear Company, under the trademark VITUF, e.g., VFR-738-A7C. In general the intrinsic viscosity will be above about 0.4 deciliters/gram and preferably above about 0.6 deciliters/gram, as measured in a 60:40 phenoltetrachloroethane mixture at 30ºC.

With respect to component (b) (iii), conventional glass fiber reinforcement is used. This is available commercially from a number of sources. The grades suitable for electrical end uses are preferred.

For purposes of this invention, components (b) (i) and (b)(ii) are employed in amounts of from about 0.1 to about 25% by weight of the total composition. Particulary preferred amounts for best overall properties are in the range of from about 3 to about 15% by weight. Reinforcing amounts of component (b) (iii) will range from about 2 to about 507. by weight and preferably from about 10 to about 40% by weight of the total composition.

The conventional flame retardant additive (c) is well known. These will be based on elementary red phosphorus, phosphorus compounds, halogen or nitrogen compounds alone or preferably in further combination with synergists, such as antimony compounds. Especially useful are polymeric and oligomeric flame retardant agents comprising tetrabromobisphenol-A carbonate units. See, for example Wambach, U.S. 3,833,685. Also preferred are halogenated aromatic ethers, such as decabromodiphenyl ether, or poly(2,6-dibromo-1,4-phenylene)ether, and the like. The amounts used are conventional and well known. For example, component (c) can comprise from 3 to 20%, preferably from 5 to 15% by weight of the total weight of the composition.

A wide variety of mineral fillers can be used in the thermoplastic compositions of this invention. Representative of these fillers are included clays, like kaolin and calcined clays, silicas, such as novaculites, ground sands and amorphous glasses; mica, talc, pyrophillites, mineral wools, wollastonites and mixtures of the same. Clays and especially treated kaolin clays, such as that known as Translink-445, available from the Freeport Kaolin Company, silica, talc and mica are preferred herein. Amounts of from about 5% to about 40% by weight of the total composition, of mineral filler are contemplated herein.

Preferably 10-30% by weight of mineral filler is used. Typical treating agents for the mineral fillers are gamma-aminopropyltriethoxysilane, gamma-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane, and beta-(3,4-epoxycyclohexyl)ethyltrimethoxysilane.

Other ingredients, such as dyes, pigments, drip retardants, and the like, can be added for their conventionally employed purposes.

The compositions of this invention can be prepared by a number of procedures. The best way is to form an intimate admixture of components (a), (b) and (c) in the presence of an effective amount of mineral filler (d). They can for example be put into an extrusion compounder to produce molding pellets. The modifiers and mineral filler are dispersed in a matrix of the polyester resin in such a process. In another procedure. the polyester(s), modifier and mineral filler are mixed by dry blending, then either fluxed on a mill and comminuted, or then are extruded and chopped. The mineral filler can also be mixed with the resins and modifiers and directly molded, e.g., by injection or transfer molding techniques, but this is not preferred.

It is also important to thoroughly free all of the ingredients: resin, modifier, flame retardant, mineral filler, and any optional, conventional additives from as much water as possible.

In addition, compounding should be carried out to ensure that the residence time in the machine is short; the temperature is carefully controlled; the friction heat is utilized; and an intimate blend between the resin, the modifier, the flame retardant additive and the mineral filler is obtained.

Although it is not essential, best results are obtained if the ingredients are pre-compounded, pelletized and then molded. Pre-compounding can be carried out in conventional equipment. For example, after carefully pre-drying the polyester and modifier and the mineral filler, e.g., 4 hours at 250ºF., a single screw vacuum vented extruder is fed with a dry blend of the ingredients, the screw employed having a long transition section to ensure proper melting. On the other hand, a twin screw machine, e.g., a 53 mm. Werner Pfleiders machine can be fed with resin and additives at the feed port and mineral filler downstream. In either case, a generally suitable machine temperature will be about 450-560ºF. The pre-compounded composition can be extruded and cut up into molding compounds such as conventional granules, pellets, etc., by standard techniques.

The compositions can be molded in any equipment conventionally used for glass-filled thermoplastic compositions, e.g., a Newberry type injection molding machine with conventional cylinder temperatures, e.g., 450-535ºF. and conventional mold temperatures, e.g., 130-200ºF.
