Titanate, Zirconate & Aluminate Coupling Agents & Catalysts for Plastics
Kenrich Petrochemicals, Inc.’s (“Kenrich”) Ken-React® series of titanate, zirconate and aluminate organometallics provide advancement-in-the-state-of-the-art opportunities for plastics processing and products. Molders can add Ken-React® CAPS® L® 12/L titanate pellet masterbatch to their injection molding machine hopper or compounding extruder and increase flow at lower temperatures while improving the properties and appearance of the finished part. Blow molders are able to increase HDPE regrind content and down gauge while maintaining strength by virtue of in situ copolymerization. Physical polymer blends are converted to stronger and more uniform copolymers in the extruder melt.
The ability of Kenrich’s organometallics to couple with all material surfaces via in situ proton coordination to bond dissimilar materials offers you greater opportunities for manufacturing new and novel plastic compositions. For example, 40% glass reinforced polycarbonate whetstones using Ken-React® can be injection molded at 100°C lower temperature, faster, and with better weld line flow and brighter red iron oxide color. Unlike silanes that do not couple to CaCO3, carbon black, and boron nitride since surface hydroxyls are necessary for silane condensation coupling, surface hydroxyls are not needed with Ken-React® organometallics. As a result, just 0.5% titanate on 70% CaCO3 filled PP homopolymer will produce a tough and flexible plastic composition.
Kenrich offers its customers a wide range of organometallics based on their “Six Functions” for coupling, catalysis, nano-phosphatization with attentive customer and technical service backed by decades of practical experience inventing and making our own plasticizers, dispersions, and specialty chemicals to provide you the solutions you need to bring your plastics applications technology to the next level. If you work with plastics materials and fillers – there is a Kenrich Ken-React® that will make your formulation work better – while using and processing your raw materials more efficiently.Place Order Request Sample
