Paraloid™ Performance Additives for Engineered Resins
Paraloid™ from Dow offers a broad range of products that are designed for improved impact resistance and for use as tougheners in a variety of resin types and end-use applications.
Paraloid™ EXL products are top quality impact modifiers that provide excellent toughness and impact resistance when used in engineered resin formulations. Paraloid™ EXL grades are widely used in a variety of industrial and consumer applications including automotive parts, electronics, durables, and lightening systems.
Why should you add Paraloid™ to your engineered resins?
Increased impact resistance
Limited deformation of engineered resins
Improved energy absorption to avoid cracks
Recommended products by the type of the engineered resin:
Paraloid™ EXL-5136 (powder) and EXL-5137 (pellet) are excellent for lowering the gloss in engineering resins applications including PC, PC/Blends, PBT, POM, and many other resin types. The highlighted grades are featured with large primary particle size and controlled morphology that creates a satin to matte finish.
Paraloid™ EXL-5136 and Paraloid™ EXL-5137 are excellent for use in injection molding and extruded sheet applications, typically loaded at 3-10% depending on the gloss reduction required. They are also used in clear polycarbonate resins to enhance the light diffusion for use in lightening applications and a loading level lower than 1%.
