Arkema plastic additives for home appliances applications for Europe Middle East Africa

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® 480: is an acrylic impact modifier designed to bring excellent impact properties and cold temperature toughness to engineering polymers, such as PC, PC Alloys and in particularly PC/ABS, PBT, PET, PBT; while preserving weatherability

Plastistrength® process aids

Plastistrength® process aids from Arkema improve melt strength and can eliminate some aesthetic defects.

 

Plastistrength® processing aids suitable for Home Appliances applications include:

  • Plastistrength® 550: is a medium molecular weight acrylic process aid recommended where enhanced fusion and processability are required, while preserving weatherability
  • Plastistrength® 559: is a medium-high molecular weight acrylic process aid which brings processability at low use levels
  • Plastistrength® 566: is a unique ultra high molecular weight acrylic process aid offering ultra-high melt strength
