Polymers used in this study were high-density polyethylene (HDPE; HTA 002; ExxonMobil Chemical) and cycloolefin copolymer (COC; Topas 8007; Ticona Celanese, Germany).
The cycloolefin film samples were exposed to aging in a QUV accelerated weathering tester according to ASTM D 5208-01 for 30 days (720 hr) for photooxidative treatment.
On a previous work [20] we published the high thermal stability of these cycloolefin resins with a decomposition temperature above of 450[degrees]C.

Yamazaki reviewed well the industrialization and application development of cycloolefin polymers (27).
In this study, rheological behavior of cycloolefin (COC)/G and EG composites were investigated in detail.
Available products--usually denoted as cycloolefin copolymers (COC)--have recently attracted much attention in the field of materials science [9-14].
An amorphous cycloolefin copolymer produced under the trade name Topas 8007 was a product of Ticona (Celanese, Germany), consisting of 30% of bicyclo[2.2.1]hept-2-ene (norbornene) units and 70% of ethylene units [6]: MFI (260[degrees]C, 2.16 kg) = 34.3 g/10 min; density: 1.014 g/[cm.sup.3]; [T.sub.g] = 81[degrees]C.
Besides Exxon's and Dow's work in catalyst development, significant metallocene catalyst technology has been developed by Chisso, Exxon, and Hoechst for isotactic polypropylene (iPP); by Hoechst and Mitsui Petrochemical for cycloolefin copolymers; by Fina and Mitsui Toatsu for syndiotactic polypropylene (sPP); and by Dow and Idemitsu for syndiotactic polystyrene.
Dow and Idemitsu are sampling syndiotactic polystyrene to customers for specialty molding applications, and Mitsui Petrochemical and Hoechst are selling cycloolefin polymers into engineering thermoplastic applications, such as compact discs.
Cycloolefins have been successfully copolymerized with ethylene to produce novel copolymers.
