Impact Modifiers

The “Compoline CO/PA” line was developed as an impact modifier for high thermo-mechanical performance engineered plastics, such as polyamides (nylon 6 and nylon 66), polyesters (PET, PBT) and PC/ABS blends, guaranteeing enhanced performance even at low temperatures (-40 ° C). It consists in a wide range of elastomeric polyolefin as well as polyolefinic copolymer based compounds modified with maleic anhydride, which is used extensively in the  automotive and energy industries. Selecting different degrees of “Compoline” and varying the dosage allows changing the anti-impact properties in relation to the temperature of use and to the mechanical properties required by the finished product. Every degree of “Compoline CO/PA”, thanks to the maleic anhydride content, in addition to acting as an impact modifier, also functions as a dispersing agent for inorganic fillers, such as fibreglass, during the compounding stage with nylon, for the production of composite materials. In case of wet or partially degraded polyamides, like the ones originating from the industrial waste, certain degrees of “Compoline CO/PA” also act as lubricant and processing aid. In fact, they act as true melt strength enhancer agents and stabilizers.
