Promote dispersion by enhancing material compatibility.
Polymers are often blended with various types of fillers, additives, reinforcing materials and other type of polymers. Τhis is especially the case for recycled materials.
Because of their different chemical structure, those materials are usually immiscible.
This behavior can lead to phase separation during melt processing, poor dispersion and inferior mechanical properties affecting the quality of the final product.
Compatibilizers promote interfacial adhesion and facilitate the dispersion of the immiscible phase, thus enhancing the performance of the finished good.
