Interaction of the functional end groups of a reactive polymer and compatibility with a miscible polymer will enable XIBOND™ compatibilizers to obtain optimal polymer blends.

Compatibilizers are necessary to optimize the morphology in polymer blends, resulting in an optimized property profile and will contribute to the surface appearance of your plastics.

Most polymers are immiscible and cannot be blended together without phase separation/delamination. Compatibilizers will improve the interfacial tension in polymer blends and will create a more stable morphology against high stresses. Enhance the adhesion between the phases and prevents phase separation and delamination. The compatibilization will result in large improvement of the mechanical properties in various polymer blend, compounds or alloys.

The XIBOND™ range offer compatibilizers with a range of reactive compatibilizers containing functional styrenics with Maleic Anhydride (MA) functionality and Glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) functionality. MA and GMA are reactive components that interact with functional end groups such as the -OH and -NH2 end groups to obtain polymer blends with optimal properties.
