- Olefin, also known as
polypropylene or polyethylene, is a long-chain polymer synthetic fiber. It
is created when ethylene
and/or propylene gases are polymerized under very specific conditions.
- Olefin was first
manufactured in the late 1950s, and has a myriad of applications in
manufacturing, household products and clothing. Use of olefin has steadily
increased since the 1960s, and continues to gain in popularity every year
as new uses for this easy, durable material are found.
- Olefin is created when
the polymers are melted to a liquid, then run through a machine called a
spinneret, which forces the product into a long fiber through small holes.
This fiber is then used to make the fabric, or the end product in which it
will be used.
- Olefin resists dyeing,
any dye must be added during this melting process, instead of to the final
fabric or product. It is
highly favored due to its easy, inexpensive manufacturing process.
Surprisingly, olefin is relatively environmentally
“friendly” due to the few byproducts produced during manufacturing. Olefin
is also easily recycled.
- Ethylene a-olefin
plastomers of about 0.9 density and 1.0 melt index are excellent materials
for designing TPO formulations for single-ply roofing applications.
transformation of seed oil via olefin metathesis.
- Application of Olefin
Cross Metathesis in Natural Product Synthesis.
- The most important
applications of olefin metathesis in the field of petrochemicals are the
olefins conversion technology
(OCT) process (originally the Phillips triolefin process) and the Shell
higher olefins process (SHOP).
- The global olefins
business is enjoying a period of unprecedented high capacity utilization
- Olefin has been kept
tight by robust demand due to sustained high economic growth rates
(particularly in Asia), and on the other hand, supply has been affected on
account of delays in several major projects and feedstock restrictions.
- strong and
resilient global economy continues to drive demand growth for light
- Toxicity test results
show that olefin and paraffin SBF are non-toxic to the water-dwelling
organisms studied. However, when sediment toxicity tests are considered,
internal olefin and some alpha olefin products have significantly less
compared to most paraffin materials.
- Olefins are similar to
paraffins but contain at least two fewer hydrogen atoms providing at least
one double bond between
adjacent carbon atoms. Olefins with one double bond have the general
- Olefins can be produced
from refinery streams or synthesized via ethylene oligomerization.
Refinery olefins are highly
branched while synthetic olefins are highly linear.
