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.
