The Universal Selection Source: Polymer Additives

Case Study

An automotive molder of glass fiber polyamide was facing strong shrinkage variations from one production cycle to another. The rejection rate was extremely high, with 20% of rejected pieces in average. With the use of solid glass beads blended with the fibers, he has succeeded to reduce and stabilize the shrinkage and eventually cut his rejectio...

Develop new blends is an efficient way to recycle PET. A range of Resalloy compatibilizers has been developed to boost the compatibility between recycled PET and HIPS. Download the full case study to see how this new compatibilizer performs.

Case Study

World demand for food containers is forecast to increase 3.8 percent per annum to $115 billion in 2013, according to Freedonia Group: World Food Containers (Industry forecasts for 2013 & 2018). The largest gains are expected in plastic containers with China forecast to account for 25 percent of the growth rate between 2008 and 2013, according to C...

Case Study

A new 'self-emulsifying' form ('SE') has been developed for liquid products and blends such as LOWINOX® CPD/SE antioxidant, used in an aqueous environment such as natural or synthetic latex and the emulsion polymerization of synthetic elastomers...

Case Study

This case study shows some of the results obtained by VANQUISH™ 100 Antimicrobial following the specifications of Ford Motor Company for PU Foams protection against fungi.

Case Study

Are you facing poor aesthetic issues due to glass fiber reinforcement? BMW engineers also have similar issues with their glass filled polyamide engines. They have found a cost-effective solution in solid glass beads, blended with the fibers. Download their full story to get all the information, from the aesthetic comparison to the impact on me...

Case Study

As a compounder, you know that polymer reinforcement is all about compromising between polymer reinforcement properties, weight, price and environmental concerns. Non-conductive milled carbon fibers are expensive while chopped glass/milled glass fibers are cheaper but still heavy and talc doesn’t show the best reinforcement properties.  Where shoul...

Case Study

In order to improve the appearance of a premium tire, a non-blooming and non-staining antioxidant is required such as Addivant's high molecular weight, slow migrating additive molecule, DURAZONE® 37 antiozonant.

Case Study

The addition of Hyperform® HPN-20E nucleating agent into your high density polyethylene-based resin increases crystallization rates and unique orientation effects, thus helping to reduce bottle panel warpage and maintain bottle dimensions even at elevated production rates.

Case Study

UBE Eternacoll® Polycarbonate Polyol is the ideal raw material for formulation of Polyurethane-based inner cast for pipes as it helps to provide an improved durability to PU thanks to increased chemical and mechanical resistance.
