Improving Polymer Performance Utilizing Additives & Modifiers

By combining our knowledge of material science and chemistry with our ability to solve difficult processing and performance problems, we help our customers cost-effectively overcome their challenges with our range of additives and modifiers for polymers.

Rely on DuPont to help you find solutions to your processing and materials issues.  We offer a variety of technologies and functionalities that our customers around the world use day-in and day-out.  Our portfolio of additives and modifiers for polymers plays an integral part in their success.  We help them overcome the obstacles that they encounter in their processes and products.

Our engineers and scientists are constantly developing new and novel materials, utilizing both traditional petroleum-based and fluorine chemistries as well as unique bio-based materials.  By incorporating these additives and modifiers into their process and polymer systems, our customers are able to provide additional performance and cost benefits to the markets they serve.

The range of additives and modifiers from DuPont is diverse.  By using DuPont™ Elvaloy® RET asphalt modifier, states and municipalities can dramatically lengthen the time between roadway repaving.  Recyclers can turn used multi-layer plastic bottles into high-value flexible corrugated pipes by using DuPont™ Fusabond® functional polymer modifiers in their recycling process.  For film producers looking for a sustainable alternative, Soft-N-Safe® bio-based plasticizer is a natural choice for modifying PVC, PET and other bio-polymers.  Finally, for molded part manufacturers who desire the reduced friction and wear resistance of PTFE but the strength, low weight and corrosion resistance of high performance engineering resins, adding a small amount of Zonyl® fluoroadditive can have dramatic results.  

Many world-class companies in myriad industries across the globe count on the science and materials expertise of DuPont.  Come find out what our range of additives and modifiers can do for you.
