Polymer Modicifation


KEMAT Polybutenes can be used to plastify and modify the properties of different thermoplastic Polymers

  • Polypropylene
  • Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
  • Thermoplastic Polymers

Polypropylene (PP)

KEMAT Polybutenes:

  • will increase the clarity of PP films
  • will increase gloss
  • reduce haze
  • increase flexibility
  • increase tear strength
  • increase softness

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)

KEMAT Polybutenes:

  • will improve the Izod impact strength
  • increase the melt flow rate

Thermoplastic Polymers

KEMAT Polybutenes:

  • will increase the chemical resistance
  • lower the permeability
  • increase the stability of different thermoplastic monomers

End User Applications

Polypropylene can be processed by most thermoplastic-processing methods, typically by:

  • extrusion blow moulding
  • injection moulding
  • general purpose extrusion

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is tough, strong and temperature resistant. It is also easily moulded with an excellent surface finish. Its wide range of applications include:

  • domestic appliances
  • telephone handsets
  • computer and office housings
  • lawn mower covers
  • safety helmets
  • luggage shells
  • automotive interior and exterior trim components
