Case Study

Are you looking to remove phthalates in your flooring application without losing excellent performance? Eastman 168™ non-phthalate plasticizer is the ideal general purpose plasticizer for flooring. It offers a ready replacement for traditional phthalate plasticizers, saving months of development, reformulation time and expense. Moreover, Eastman ...

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...

Case Study

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

Addivant developed GENOX® EP stabilizer, an antioxidant addressed to polyolefin producers and converters who are facing gas fading and discoloration issues during the extrusion process. Multipass extrusions generate strong melt flow and color instability which you can solve by using efficient polyolefin antioxidants. Compared to traditional or unsu...

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

Milled glass fibers ranging in size from 1/8, 1/32 and 1/16 inch are common reinforcements used to improve mechanical properties of plastic composites but historically exhibit poor surface appearance and expensive raw material costs. How could you get overall reinforcement properties with improved surface appearance and lower cost?

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

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...
