Nexam Chemical introduces NEXAMITE® PBO


─ strong performance in many application areas

Nexam Chemical introduces a new multifunctional additive with intended use as chain extender and crosslinker. NEXAMITE®PBO is also an effective compatibilizer and acid scavenger in the manufacture of virgin polymer blends, engineering plastics and recycling of mixed plastics.

Added values using NEXAMITE® PBO are:

    Improved hydrolytic and thermal stability
    Allows for the use of low viscosity polymers
    Enables for upgrading of spent and recycled material
    Allows for controlled branching and crosslinking degree
    Makes possible for the compatibilization of polymer blends

NEXAMITE®PBO technology improves melt viscosity, hydrolytic stability and heat resistance, which is useful in a variety of industries. The chemical, physical and mechanical properties, along with the ease of formulating better performing materials provides opportunities to use NEXAMITE®PBO in a wide range of plastic materials and manufacturing processes.

“Both the end customers and material developers will benefit from NEXAMITE®PBO’s strong performance in many application areas” says Daniel Röme, Director Business Development & Innovation at Nexam Chemical.
