Altuglas® BS 572

Altuglas® BS 572 by ALTUGLAS INTERNATIONAL (Arkema Group) is a methylmethacrylate (MMA) copolymer. Acts as a matting agent. Shows little effect on processing conditions like torque, pressure, melting temperature, etc. Possesses high stability temperature (typical of PMMA >300°C) and therefore it is not degraded at all by usual processing conditions (shear and temperature) of PVC. It exhibits surface effects, anti-blocking and printability characteristics. Provides excellent dispersion in polymers during melting and processing. Shows perfect compatibility with PVC and all vinylic polymers. Possesses homogeneous effects, excellent reproducibility of recipes and minimal effect on mechanical properties such as impact strength, modulus, strain and even intrinsic weatherability (UV resistance) of beads. Used in the manufacturing of extruded opaque sheets in furnitures and thermoformable door panels, packaging, extruded profiles in sidings and window boards. Altuglas® BS 572 is also used in making blown films to give transparent and opaque effects. Can be used in a broad range of formulations of flexible and rigid PVC with any type of additive including plasticizers, processing aids, fillers, pigments and stabilizers. Provides frost appearance in bottles.
