As our company name suggests, compounding additives are at the heart of what we do at The Compound Company! From impact modifiers to coupling agents to compatibilizers to adhesion promoters and chain extenders – our solutions contribute to better, higher-performing compounds. It’s all complemented by an expert team with the flexibility to work with you in creating customized solutions that meets your unique needs.
Our compatibilizers blend materials together in a more homogenous way – creating greater dispersion and adhesion between a variety of polymers and polyolefins. Today, customers use both our Yparex® and Exxelor® resins in everything from film applications to reduce gel size and limit surface tension; to injection molding – for maximizing impact strength and resistance.
If you need to achieve reliable chemical bonding between reinforced fibers and different polymers - you need our Yparex® coupling agents. They boost impact strength across a range of fibers – including our EcoForte® family of glass-fiber reinforced compounds and natural-fiber reinforced compounds. Applications include composite tapes - where we deliver the best mechanical properties in the market (in both PE and PP); and PP-based wood plastic composites – where independent studies have demonstrated not only outstanding mechanical strength but a 5% lower energy consumption versus the reference material.
Dependable adhesion is critical in the compounding business. That’s why our Yparex® adhesive resin and Exxelor® polymer resin are used by manufacturers worldwide to boost adhesion with a wide range of materials – including aluminum, copper, metal, thermoset rubbers and polar substrates like glass.
When it comes to improving the impact strength of polymers, our Exxelor® polymer resins in particular have now become the industry standard for a variety of applications. Modified with maleic anhydride (a rubber-like polymer), Exxelor® is highly versatile – and flexible.
For example, if you want to lower the carbon footprint of your product without compromising performance, we offer sustainable compounds for impact modification that contain recycled content and even biopolymers.
We offer our EcoForte® CE chain extender as a masterbatch - available in both PLA and PET carriers. It’s ideal for plastics processors and recyclers looking to improve dosing ability and achieve better accessibility of the reactive groups.
