A new impact modifier range that is suitable for applications requiring exceptional impact resistance at extremely low temperatures has been developed by Arkema. Lotader 2200 is an impact modifier range for Polyamide 6 and 66 components.
The new acrylate-based ethylene terpolymers are ideal for manufacturing PA66 components, including the lawnmower body, handle, hubcap, mirror and rearview. The material has been developed based on customer demand in household, industrial and automotive markets. Lotader impact modifiers are used globally to process technical polymers such as polycarbonate (PC), thermoplastic polyesters and polyamides. In addition, the company has developed Orevac IM300 impact modifier for PA6 components. The new grafted polyolefin grade provides an exceptional balance between flexibility and resistance to cracks and impact at lower temperatures. In addition, it maintains high fluidity for superior productivity.
