Arkema plastic additives for Flooring applications

Plastistrength® processing aids and Clearstrength® impact modifiers

Plastistrength® processing aids contribute to better processability while Clearstrength® impact modifiers enhance the mechanical resistance of top transparent layer for PVC based flooring.


Plastistrength® processing aids used in PVC flooring applications include:

  • Plastistrength® 559: is a medium-high molecular weight acrylic processing aids providing enhanced processability at low use levels to vinyl compounds
  • Plastistrength® 550: is a medium molecular weight acrylic processing aids recommended where enhanced fusion and processability are required for vinyl compounds
  • Plastistrength® 770: is a lubricating acrylic processing aid  that enhances processability to vinyl compounds through exceptionnal metal release properties, and which improves surface quality of finished articles and prevents plate-out issues


 Clearstrength® impact modifiers used in PVC flooring applications include:

  • Clearstrength® W300: is an acrylic impact modifier designed to bring impact strength and to sustain weatherability of transparent top PVC layer
