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).

Precipitated Calcium Carbonate – Multifunctional Additive for PVC: Techno Brief

By SpecialChem

Calcium carbonate is one of the most widely utilized minerals. Ground calcium carbonates (GCC) are used mainly as fillers, while precipitated calcium carbonates (PCC), in addition to being reinforcing fillers, can function as a processing aids and impact modifiers as well. This Precipitated Calcium Carbonate guide is designed to help you understand more about the use of PCC in PVC polymer, focusing on the benefits and main applications.

Silane Coupling Agents: Techno Brief

By SpecialChem

Coupling agents are adhesion promoters that are used to provide a stable bond by reducing the interfacial tension between the fibrous or particulate inorganic component and the organic matrix polymer in reinforced and filled plastics. This Coupling Agents guide is designed to help you understand more about the use of silanes as coupling agents in reinforced plastics, focusing on the benefits and main applications.
