UMEX- Acid Modified Polyolefin Coupling Agents
Maleic-acid-modified low-molecular-weight polypropylene coupling agents. UMEX is superior to competitive products due to higher acid numbers which provide greater performance and allow lower addition levels. Benefits include improved bonding to reinforcing fibers and fillers, compatibilization of polymer blends, improved filler dispersion and enhanced adhesion. Recently developed grades offer lower melting points.
