DuPontTM Elvaloy® ethylene copolymers and terpolymers provide impact resistance over a broad temperature range, particularly at low temperatures, for various thermoplastics. Ethylene terpolymers improve impact resistance of PVC, ABS, SAN, SMA, and PC. In rigid PVC, they offer improved filler acceptance and act as a fusion aid for easier processing.
DuPontTM Surlyn® ionomer resins provide impact resistance for nylon 6 and 66 compounds. Some grades are FDA approved enabling the potential for food contact toughened nylon applications.
DuPontTM Fusabond® and DuPontTM Elvaloy® polymer modifiers are a broad portfolio of functionalized resins including polyolefins and elastomers as well as reactive copolymers. These are used in impact modification of polyamides, polyesters and other engineering resins. Some of these modifiers also act as coupling agents which interact with inorganic fillers to allow higher loadings while maintaining physical properties and processing characteristics.
DuPontTM Elvaloy® resin modifiers for PVC have an extremely high molecular weight (>250,000), which makes PVC compounds more durable. Reportedly, they have near zero extraction and essentially zero volatility, migration, and exudation, and provide heat and oil resistance. They have been used commercially for decades in calendered, extruded and injection molded products. Applications include single-ply roofing, geomembranes automotive interior applications, upholstery, cable jacketing, floor tile, hose and tubing, footwear and office chair mats.
