Structural Adhesives

Clearstrength® MMA-butadiene-styrene (MBS) core-shell impact modifiers deliver exceptional mechanical properties without significantly raising the viscosity of the resin matrix compared to other toughening technologies used in structural adhesives. Durastrength® acrylic impact modifiers impart excellent ambient and cold temperature impact with extended weathering resistance.

Composites

Clearstrength® MMA-butadiene-styrene (MBS) core-shell impact modifiers deliver exceptional mechanical properties without significantly raising the viscosity of the resin matrix compared to other toughening technologies used in composites applications across many industries, including aerospace, sporting goods and much more. Durastrength® acrylic impact modifiers offer extreme weatherability and heat stability, as well as increasing impact strength.

Wind Energy

Clearstrength® and Durastrength® impact modifiers offer the toughness and other properties needed to improve composites and bonding pastes used in the fabrication of wind energy blades and equipment and their protective coatings.

Electronic and Electrics

Clearstrength® impact modifiers help to achieve better performance of encapsulating resins for electronics as well as improving the post manufacturing steps of printed cardboards.

UV curable 3D printing

Clearstrength® and Durastrength® impact modifiers are ideal for the development of new polymers in 3D printing. In UV curing formulation, use of Clearstrength® allows an improvement of impact properties without compromise on thermomechanical properties (no negative shift of the glass transition).

Industrial Bonding Pastes

Clearstrength® and Durastrength® impact modifiers offer the properties needed to improve bonding pastes used in glass reinforced plastic (GRP) and fiberglass (FRP) applications.
