Arkema plastic additives, such as Durastrength®, are suitable for injection molding applications
Arkema offers a wide variety of impact modifiers for injection molding applications.
Clearstrength® impact modifiers
Clearstrength® acrylic impact modifiers from Arkema were developed to provide top quality impact resistance at both ambient and low temperatures.
- Clearstrength® 859 is a highly effective opaque acrylic modifier developed for use in injection molding compounds. Clearstrength® 859 produces the highest impact strength of the Clearstrength® product range
- Clearstrength® 223 is a general purpose, high quality impact modifier that contributes to the uniformity of PVC compounds
Durastrength® impact modifiers
Durastrength® plastic additives from Arkema provide high-performance for injection molding applications that focus on improved processing with better flow, weatherability and heat stability.
Durastrength® products for injection molding include:
Durastrength® 320 is an acrylic impact modifier designed with impact resistance to pass critical impact test procedures while preserving weatherability, processability and flow properties
Durastrength® 350, a new acrylic impact modifier developed to deliver remarkable impact properties to rigid vinyl products
Durastrength® 510, an multi-functional acrylic modifier that contains unique properties allowing for the elimination of added process aid in formulations, thereby decreasing the total acrylic level needed in most formulations
Additional Durastrength® products for injection molding include:
Plastistrength® process aids
Plastistrength® process aids from Arkema promote fusion, improve melt strength, eliminate surface defects and decrease plate out.
The following Plastistrength® products are available for use with injection molding applications:
