The Universal Selection Source: Polymer Additives

Polymer Reinforcement Channel
Fibers (glass, carbon, polymeric, etc.) are well-known polymer reinforcers. Fillers are also efficient ways to reinforce polymers, improving other properties like dimensional stability and scratch resistance. Latest trends are fueled by nanotechnologies (carbon nanotubes, nanoclayes, halloysite nanotubes) and naturally-sourced reinforcers (sisal fibers, cellulosic fibers or flour).
