BYK PRIEX® 20097 Maleic Anhydride Grafted PP homopolymer
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polypropylene (PP)

Material Notes: Fields of application: Functionalised polypropylene to be used as compatibiliser for polymer blends or coupling agent for glass fibre, wood flour, natural fibres, multilayer films, aluminium foils, or mineral filled polypropylene.

Examples: Compatibilising short-and long glass fibres and PP applications such as automotive applications (instrument panel carrier, front-end, door modules, etc.) and Wood filled polymer composites.

Mode of action and advantages: PRIEX® 20097 is a polypropylene, grafted with a very high content of maleic anhydride. The grafted maleic anhydride introduces polarity to the polymer achieving compatibility between polyolefins and more polar polymers like EVOH.

Advantages: Excellent mechanical properties, good cost / performance; Ultra low smell, low VOC and emissions; Excellent wetting properties as a result of very low viscosity (hyperfluid grade); Excellent coupling agent for shortand long glass filled polyolefins providing enhanced physical, mechanical and thermal properties; Excellent coupling agent for natural fibre reinforced polymer composites or wood flour reinforced polymer composites; Free flowing pellets; and Safe and easy handling.

Food contact: PRIEX® 20097 composition meets the requirements of Commission Directive 2002/72/EC and further amendments.
