Organoclay Imparts Scratch Resistance
Modified Clay-Based Additives Improve the Surface Properties of Polyamides, Acrylates and Polycarbonate
Scratches and marring limit the potential applications of thermoplastics, which is why many processors are searching for approaches to protecting surfaces from such damage. To address this issue, various thermoplastics have been combined with additives based on modified clay and then had their properties compared.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
