Arkema Creates New Generation of Acrylic Impact Modifiers For Engineering Resins

Arkema has developed Durastrength® 440 impact modifier, an industry-leading acrylic Impact modifier for PC and alloys. Durastrength® 440 is based on acrylic chemistry designed to impart excellent ambient and cold temperature impact to PC and PC blends.

Key benefits include:

  1. Outstanding low temp impact resistance: Similar performance to MBS so can withstand -40°C and still remain ductile.
  2. Excellent weatherability and thermal aging: Retaining color and mechanical properties upon exposure to these elements.
  3. Excellent colorability: Minimal impact on the color vs conventional acrylics.

Another Successful Back To School Drive!

We took part in another Fill Their Bags campaign to prepare local kids in foster care for the upcoming school year, and it went great! Our employees were able to collect hundreds of school supplies to support children in our community. Thank you to everyone who took the time to gather and donate these items. They're going to go make a huge impact on a lot of deserving kids' lives!
