Acrylic Impact Modifier

 

Product Description


Is an all acrylic polymer designed to improve the impact properties of rigid vinyl formulations.

 

General Benefits


Is a high efficiency impact modifier and provides excellent impact retention under various weather conditions. Is suitable for outdoor and durable PVC based products, such as window profiles, vinyl siding, vinyl fencing, deck and rail.

 

Typical Applications and Benefits

 

  • · Extruded Profiles – is an excellent high efficiency impact modifier that promotes the development of moderate gloss surfaces. Has excellent weathering properties and a broad processing window which promotes excellent sizing and the generation of smooth surfaces.
  • · Vinyl Siding – is well suited for vinyl siding substrate and cap-stock applications due to its superior impact efficiency, weathering properties and processing window.

Technical Information


Acrylic Processing Aid

 

Product Description


Is a high molecular weight acrylic polymer that enhances the processing of PVC based formulations. Is an excellent high efficiency processing aid that promotes a wide processing window, providing the flexibility to limit the number of processing aids for various applications.

 

General Benefits


Has excellent powder properties with typically larger particle size, more spherical particle shape and tighter particle size distribution as compared to many competitive processing aids. This results in greater efficiency in processing, ease of handling, effective weighing and a less dusty work environment.

 

Typical Applications and Benefits

 

  • · Extruded Profiles – can contribute to an improved processing window and enhanced impact through proper fusion control for vinyl widow profiles and fencing applications. Melt elasticity, melt strength and sizing can be improved through the use of acrylic processing.
  • · Vinyl Siding – The use of processing aid can contribute to enhanced impact properties thought the proper control of fusion and impact modifier dispersion. Melt elasticity, melt strength and sizing can be improved through the use of acrylic processing.

 

 

  • · Foam applications – Us ab effective general purpose foam process aid due to its excellent melt strength and elasticity
