Plastic Compound

The development of higher performing compounds combining complementary features of engineering plastics and polyolefin (PO) materials, while ensuring ease of processability, is an ever-increasing requirement in a variety of industries for which design flexibility, lighter weight and robust mechanical properties are key. Main challenges of such plastic compounds are optimal compatibility between their diverse components, robust mechanical properties as well as efficient conversion economics.

Acti-Tech™ compatibilizers: adding value to plastic compounds and alloys

Thanks to their Vistamaxx™ performance polymer backbone, Acti-Tech compatibilizers come in a broad offering of flexural modulus solutions, ranging from 10 to 400 MPa. The resulting material will be highly flexible, softer relative to traditional grafted PO alternatives and particularly effective in delivering enhanced impact strength of PP/engineering plastics alloys.

The manufacturing of Acti-Tech compatibilizers uses a highly efficient melt grafting process, capable of high functionalization with maleic anhydride (MA) monomer and low volatile organic compound (VOC) content, thereby enabling significantly improved compatibility between key components of the thermoplastic alloy. Conversion efficiency is realized thanks to the excellent adhesion promoter role of Acti-Tech compatibilizers as well as lower loading levels required to ensure effective coupling.

Available in a wide range of melt flow index (MFI) options, Acti-Tech compatibilizers also display improved filler wettability and dispersibility versus regular MA-grafted polyethylene, which greatly facilitates optimal compounding of the desired final product.
