DuPont polypropylene modifiers improve the value of filled compounds and alloys

Polypropylene is a semicrystalline polymer exhibiting very attractive cost-performance balance and easy processability. Some applications require polypropylene modifiers to improve the toughness or attractiveness of the polymer. DuPont offers several value-adding modifier resins for polypropylene compounders.

 

  • DuPont™ Elvaloy® AC polypropylene modifiers can be used in single-screw extruders to make toughened alloys.

  • Increasing Elvaloy® AC loading increases PP toughness

  • Ethylene butyl acrylate (EBA) grades are preferred for  PP impact modification

  • Enhances the dispersion of pigments, glass-fibers or minerals 

  • Improves compatibility for polypropylene alloys

  • Applications include consumer and industrial goods


Other DuPont polypropylene modifiers include:

  • Fusabond® P353, P613 – as coupling agents for mineral, glass or cellulose filled PP 
  • Elvaloy® AC 3427 – as a toughener 
  • Entira™ Antistat MK400 – a non-blooming permanent anti-stat with FDA compliance
  • Entira™ Antistat AS500 – a polymeric, non-blooming permanent anti-stat with FDA compliance
  • Entira™ Antistat AS100 – a polymeric, non-blooming permanent anti-stat with FDA compliance
