Plastics without additives would be commercial failures. They would not be processable, or else they would not be marketable, or else they would not be durable, or else they would be too flammable. The growth in the worldwide plastics industry in recent years owes at least as much to developments in additive technology as it does to improvements in polymer science.
Additives are selected depending on the type of polymers to which they will be added or the application for which they will be used. Appropriate selection of additives helps develop value-added plastics with improved durability as well as other advantages. Built around products we have developed ourselves, we offer a range of additives that can be used for a wide variety of applications.
SCAPL polymer additives include performance-tailored tougheners, coupling agents, flexibilizers and mixed plastic compatibilizers.
SCAPL focuses on global supply of modifier resins that play specialized performance roles in plastics manufacturing. DuPont polymer additives contribute to more efficient compounding, higher-value plastics from existing production lines, easier and more consistent downstream processing and easier recycling.
