Chemical Structure vs Properties

From molecular structure to mechanical properties: understanding how atomic structure influences material properties and part selection. As a follow up to our series on Crystallinity vs Material Properties, we investigate the influence that chemical structure has on final part performance including melting point, glass transition temperature, barrier properties, ESCR, and UV stability.


LyondellBasell Hot Melt Adhesives

The Koattro PB-1 portfolio of products offers a wide viscosity range with excellent wetting capabilities, extended open time, high cohesive strength, good stiffness/impact balance and a very good thermal stability. They are also phthalate-free.


Resins for Compounding

Entec Polymers has an excellent track record of assisting compounders in producing more effective, durable and efficient products for various end use applications.


CRYSTALADD Nucleating Masterbatches

Nucleation technology has been used with polymers such as polypropylene and nylon for many years, and it is an effective aid in helping the polymers to crystallize faster and more consistently and to improve physical or mechanical properties.


CRYSTALADD Processing Guide

CRYSTALADD® Nucleating Masterbatch resins are designed to be added to Polyethylene molding and extrusion processes by direct addition to the machine or by pre-blending with the PE resin or other masterbatch additives (i.e. colorants, slip, anti-block etc.) before processing.
