Polymer Modifiers

Proven as a PVC modifier, DuPont™ Elvaloy® resins also find use in ABS and polyesters

DuPont™ Elvaloy® PVC modifiers are highly miscible in PVC, offering opportunities for PVC-based manufacturers to differentiate product performance and increase productivity through compounding efficiency and formulating advances.

DuPont™ Elvaloy® modifiers serve as permanent PVC plasticizers or as impact modifiers and process aids; they address  needs for longer PVC product life, improved impact performance, or reduced material or operating costs. Typical benefits include:

 

  • Performance under conditions in which a liquid plasticizer would migrate, such as outdoor exposure to weather or contact with chemicals
  • Increased melt strength for thinner parts, better foam cell structure or wider thermoforming window
  • Reduced scrap and higher yields through improved flow and fusion characteristics, which allow for lower processing temperatures and a wider processing window in rigid PVC;
  • Reduced cost by enabling higher filler levels while meeting impact properties;
  • Impact strength that meets or exceeds industry standards.
