PARALOID™ impact modifiers provide exceptional high-performance benefits to a broad range of engineered resins. As market demand grows for increasingly advanced plastic applications, PARALOID™ impact modifiers benefit a broad range of thermoset and thermoplastic polymer systems with durability, excellent compatibility, and impact strength. They are used in various industrial and consumer applications, including automotive parts, electronics, packaging, durables, appliances, and lightening systems.
PARALOID™ additives for engineered resins and plastics have enhanced ductility and improved absorption properties. Acrylic polymer systems are also supported by these performance-enhancing additives.
Why you should add PARALOID™ to your engineered resins
- Increased impact resistance
- Enhanced ductility
- High-Performance reliability
- Limited deformation and processability of engineered resins
- Improved energy absorption to avoid cracks
Recommended performance additives by engineering resin:
PARALOID™ MBS impact modifiers offer low-temperature impact strength, resistance, excellent efficiency, processability, and non-weatherable (UV). They are also thermally stabilized to endure high-temperature and extreme compounding and molding conditions.
PARALOID™ Acrylic impact modifier grades offer superior weatherability and enhanced heat stability for various thermoset and thermoplastic applications. Paraloid™ Acrylics are ideal when room T impact is required.
PARALOID™ for Appearance and Gloss Modifications:
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 feature large primary particle size and controlled morphology, creating a satin to a matte finish. PARALOID™ EXL-5136
and PARALOID™ EXL-5137
are excellent for use in injection molding and extrusion of 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 in lightening applications and a loading level lower than 1%.
