PLUSS has been a constant trendsetter in the field of functionalized polymers which serve to enhance the mechanical properties and processing conditions of polymer compounds, blends and alloys.
Speciality polymers are chemically modified polymers used as coupling agents, compatibilizers, impact modifiers, tie-layer adhesive resins, metal adhesion promoters, flow modifiers and chain extenders for polymer compounds, blends and alloys. These are produced by chemical grafting of reactive monomers like maleic anhydride, glycidyl methacrylate and other similar materials on the base polyoleifnes. They possess superior properties than the simple polyolefines in terms of polarity, adhesion to different substrates, and compatibility with reinforcements and fillers.
PLUSS produces and markets these speciality polymers under the brand names OPTIM®, BindEX, NOVIS, ADNYL™, OPTIPET™. These enhance properties of polymer compounds thus enabling their increased adoption in automotive, wire & cable, wood plastics composites, flexible packaging, white goods and recycling industries besides several others.
Why PLUSS Speciality Polymers
High end engineering applications demand excellent end use properties which are met only by using filled or reinforced polymer compounds. Usually, the mixing of fillers or reinforcers in polymers (typically polyolefins) is a tacky problem, caused due to the difference in polarities of the polymer matrix and the constituent fillers. Unfacilitated mixing of these two results in very poor or no adhesion, or in other words, products with very poor properties. In order to promote adhesion or bonding, functionalized polymers are added. These functionalized polymers are often made of the same polymers that constitute the target matrix, making them easy to handle and very efficient.
When the adhesion promotion is required between two immiscible polymers, the same functionalized polymers may also be incorporated as compatibilizers. In general terms, chemical compatibilizers and coupling agents are the same materials and are popularly traded as Functionalized Polymers.
