Polypropylene Modifiers Compounds Alloys

- January 01, 2016 -

Polypropylene modifiers are semicrystalline polymers exhibiting very attractive cost-performance balance and easy processability. Some applications require polypropylene modifiers to improve the toughness or attractiveness of the polymer. Dow offers several value-adding modifier resins for polypropylene compounders.

  • Dow™ Elvaloy® AC polypropylene modifiers can be used in single-screw extruders to make toughened alloys
  • Increasing Elvaloy® AC loading increases PP toughness
  • Ethylene butyl acrylate (EBA) grades are preferred for PP impact modification
  • Enhances the dispersion of pigments, glass-fibers or minerals
  • Improves compatibility for polypropylene alloys
  • Applications include consumer and industrial goods

Other Dow polypropylene modifiers include:

  • Fusabond® P353, P613 – as coupling agents for mineral, glass or cellulose filled PP
  • Elvaloy® AC 3427 – as a toughener •\tEntira™ Antistat MK400 – a non-blooming permanent anti-stat with FDA compliance
  • Entira™ Antistat AS500 – a polymeric, non-blooming permanent anti-stat with FDA compliance
  • Entira™ Antistat AS100 – a polymeric, non-blooming permanent anti-stat with FDA compliance
