Impact Modifiers for Engineering Resins

Are you looking for modifiers for your engineering resin compounds? Then look no further. Entec Polymers offers a range of impact modifiers and compatibilizers for engineering resins such as Nylon, ABS, PC, PC Alloys, Polyesters, PLA and PPS. Let us help you select the best impact modifier for your compounding needs.

Entec Polymers offers a number of impact modifiers that can be utilized in various engineering resins to improve the toughness and impact performance. These different modifiers are selected for specific application needs and requirements. Some modifiers can provide for ‘super tough’ impact performance while others may be better for cold temperature impact while others may offer improved impact performance with improved flow or processability.

In general, Ethylene Methyl Acrylate Copolymers offer very good impact performance in ABS, PC and PC/ABS compounds, while Glycidyl Methacrylate Terpolymers (GMA) offer outstanding impact performance in polyesters, polyester alloys, PLA and PPS compounds.

For impact modifying nylon compounds, Maleic Anhydride Modified Polyolefins (MAH) offer superior impact performance while certain Zinc Ionomers can offer high impact performance but with higher flow characteristics. Carbon Monoxide Modified Polyolefins offer moderate impact performance in ABS while also improving the flow characteristics of the final compound. Ethylene Butyl Acrylate Copolymers can offer moderate improvements in impact performance and are compatible with most polymers.
