Arkema plastic additives for home appliances for Americas and Asia

Clearstrength® and Durastrength® impact modifiers

Clearstrength® and Durastrength® impact modifiers from Arkema were developed to provide top quality impact resistance at both ambient and low temperatures. Clearstrength® are suitable for very cold temperature while giving better colorability than Durastrength®. Durastrentgth® have the particularity to provide higher weatherability properties.

 

Clearstrength® impact modifiers suitable for home appliances applications include:

  • Clearstrength® 859: is a highly effective opaque impact modifier developed for use in injection molding compounds. Clearstrength® 859 produces the highest impact strength of the Clearstrength® product range in particular at low temperature
  • Clearstrength® 223: is a general purpose opaque impact modifier, that contributes to the uniformity of the compounds, and that provides impact resistance at low temperature
  • Clearstrength® E920: is a general purpose impact modifier designed to provide excellent ambient and low temperature toughness and colorability to engineering polymers: PC, PC Alloys and in particularly PC/ABS, PET, PBT
  • Clearstrength® E950: is an impact modifier designed to provide excellent ambiant and cold temperature toughness and colorability to engineering polymers: PC, PC Alloys and in particularly PC/PBT, PC/PET, PET, PBT, PA

 

Durastrength® impact modifiers suitable for home appliances applications 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: is an acrylic impact modifier developped to deliver remarkable impact properties to rigid vinyl products
  • Durastrength® 510: is a multi-functional acrylic impact modifier which contains unique properties allowing the elimination of added processing aids in formulations, thereby decreasing the total acrylic modifiers level needed in most formulations

 

Additonnal Durastrength® impact modifiers for home appliances include:

Plastistrength® processing aids

Plastistrength® processing aids improve melt strength and eliminate surface defects.

 

Plastistrength® processing aids suitable for home appliances applications include:

  • Plastistrength® 550: is a medium molecular weight acrylic processing aid that brings enhanced fusion and processability to rigid vinyl compounds
  • Plastistrength® 551: is a medium molecular weight acrylic processing aid that brings enhanced processability and good melt strength at low use levels to rigid vinyl compounds
  • Plastistrength® 530: is a high molecular weight acrylic porcessing aid which offers enhanced processability to rigid vinyl compounds
  • Plastistrength® 576: is an acrylic processing aid which provides lower processing temperatures than competititve products, in addition to an extended processing window
