Plastics & Polymers Enhancing Polymer Performance

Compatibilizer

A compatibilizer is an additive used to stabilize blends of immiscible polymers to produce polymer alloys which have improved properties compared to the same ratio of the two polymers not containing the compatibilizer. For instance ZeMac® E60P and ZeMac® Extend M600 works as a compatibilizer for nylon-polyester alloys, while ZeMac® Extend M603 works as a compatibilizer between polypropylene and nylon.
