INFORMATION & IDEAS
DuPont Senior Technical Specialist, E. R. Griffin, analyzes thermoplastics used in fold-and-form PVC pipe liners.
DuPont impact modifier resins increase the durability of molded or extruded plastics, particularly those subject to impact forces or cold weather service.
DuPont™ Elvaloy® PVC modified polymers are highly miscible in PVC, offering opportunities for PVC-based manufacturers to differentiate product performance and more.
Adding a polymer compatibilizer between two polymer layers results in finer dispersion, as well as more regular and stable morphologies.
Several DuPont polymer modifiers can be used as coupling agents in filled plastic compounds, often enhancing performance properties.
DuPont™ Elvaloy® resin modifiers improve the performance and lower the cost of rigid PVC compounds.
Read about sample PVC formulations test results and advantages of using Elvaloy® for improved PVC performance.
Compared to conventional monomeric and polymeric plasticizers, Elvaloy® resins are higher in molecular weight, helping impart higher tensile strength and tear resistance...
For flexible PVC, DuPont™ Elvaloy® solid-phase (polymeric) plasticizer adds permanent flexibility, enabling the development of higher-value products.
As a masterbatch carrier resin for various blends, including PVC, DuPont™ Elvaloy® AC helps efficiently introduce pigments, fillers and performance additives.
DuPont™ Elvaloy® ethylene acrylate copolymer resins have a substantially higher heat resistance than EVAs and other polar copolymers.
