Methacrylate monomers for Plastics


Copolymeric methyl methacrylate-butadiene-styrene (MBS) and methyl methacrylate-acrylonitrile- butadiene-styrene (MABS) impact modifiers are used as plastic additives for rigid plastics. They improve transparency, weather resistance (UV & heat) and mechanical properties (impact resistance) in PVC formulations.
They are commonly added to many types of resins, such as polyvinylchloride (PVC), polycarbonates (PC), polyesters, polyacetals and epoxies. The modified resins are then processed into vinyl siding, window frames, pipe, fitting sheet, film, bottle, profile and injection-molded parts.
