Adell Plastics Announces a New Line of Maleic Anhydride-Modified Polyolefin Compatibilizers



Adell Plastics is pleased to announce the introduction of a new line of maleic anhydride- modified polyolefins for use as compatibilizers in polymer compounding. These additive products have been designed to reduce the interfacial forces between polymers and polymer fillers to increase adhesion within a composite. In addition, the presence of compatibilizers within a composite generally results more uniform dispersion and more stable morphologies. This product family is designed to have a high level of functionality to permit for low addivation levels

Initial offerings in Adell's new compatibilizer product family include:

EK-10-MAH Maleic Anhydride-Modified Polypropylene recommended for coupling of glass and other fillers in Polypropylene composites.

KK-10-MAH Maleic Anhydride-Modified HDPE recommended for coupling of glass, wood pulp and other fillers in HDPE composites.
