Compatibility in the recycled material is important whether it is composed of a mix of plastics or not. The Acti-Tech compatibilizer product range offers both compatibilization and toughening of recycled plastics. The elastomeric nature of Acti-Tech compatibilizer help compensate for loss of impact properties and increase tensile strength by compatibilization.
Acti-Tech compatibilizer have shown improved dispersion and decreased domain size of polyolefin particles in a polyester matrix. Moreover, it demonstrates increased impact strength even at low temperatures compared to non-compatibilized mixture.
