Arkema plastic additives for Film and Sheet applications

Clearstrength® impact modifiers

Developed for PVC based clear packaging and opaque films , Arkema’s Clearstrength® impact modifiers have a large presence in production of film and sheet products, offering superb impact resistance.

 

Clearstrength® products used in Opaque film and sheet include:

  • Clearstrength® 223: is a general purpose MBS impact modifier, designed for opaque sheet applications, it contributes to the uniformity of PVC compounds
  • Clearstrength® 859: is a MBS impact modifier that provides the highest impact strength of the Clearstrength® impact modifiers product line. Designed for opaque sheet applications, it brings outstanding lot to lot consistency and high quality

 

Clearstrength® products used in Clear film and sheet include:

  • Clearstrength® W300: is an acrylic impact modifier used in outdoor applications which combines high quality clarity, impact strength and sustains weatherability
  • Clearstrength® 140: is a MBS impact modifier designed to bring high clarity and crease-whitening resistance together with tougheness to vinyl formulations
  • Clearstrength® 320: is a MBS impact modifier which offers excellent combination of impact strength and transparency to PVC films and sheets
  • Clearstrength® 350: is a MBS impact modifier which brings very high impact resistance event at low temperature of use, to clear PVC applications
  • Clearstrength® 303H: is a MBS impact modifier which presents the best compromise between impact resistance and optical properties to PVC films and sheets

Plastistrength® process aids

Arkema’s Plastistrength® process aids have been developed with the intent to improve formulation metal release properties in extrusion and calendaring applications for film and sheet.

 

  • Plastistrength® 550: is a medium molecular weight acrylic process aid. It was designed to improve processability for both rigid and flexible vinyl compounds
  • Plastistrength® 551: is a medium-high molecular weight acrylic process aid. Its purpose is to improve processability at low use levels to rigid and flexible vinyl compounds (Availability: Americas and Asia only)
  • Plastistrength® L1000: is an acrylic lubricant processing aid, developed to provide excellent metal release characteristics and have little effect on clarity, heat stability, chemical resistance and physical properties. These qualities make it the perfect choice of lubricant for calendaring
  • Plastistrength® 770: is a lubricating acrylic processing aid which enhances processability to vinyl compounds through exceptionnal metal release properties. It improves surface quality of finished products and prevents plate-out issues
