Dow PARALOID™ portfolio of impact modifier additives improves the overall appearance, temperature, and strength performance of engineered resins.
Over a dozen impact modifier additives are available to meet your specific formulation needs, from enhanced ductility to resin toughening for durable goods, outdoor equipment, high-performance sports commodities, electronics, and automobiles. PARALOID™ impact modifiers have been used with significant effect in improving impact strength for polycarbonate (PC), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), and epoxy.
WHY DOW PARALOID™ EXL IMPACT MODIFIERS:
Improved impact resistance and strength
Enhanced weatherability and low-temperature performance
Increased thermal stability
Enhances the deformation and the energy-absorbing processes of the resin
A pelletized MBS modifier provides heat stability in polycarbonate, polybutylene terephthalate, and polyethylene terephthalate systems. It is suitable for both weatherable and nonweatherable applications.
An MBS modifier ideal for both opaque and translucent films where a balance between high-impact performance and cost efficiency is critical. This spherical white powder is free-flowing, allowing dust-free mixing and higher-output production.
Dow PARALOID™ impact modifier additives are designed to meet and exceed the performance expectations for various end-use applications. Engineering plastics provide demanding markets with improved impact strength that significantly increases temperature and weatherability performance.
