1, Reinforcement: by adding glass fiber, carbon fiber, mica powder, and other fibrous or flake fillers to achieve the purpose of increasing the rigidity and strength of the material, such as glass fiber reinforced nylon used in power tools.
2, Toughening: by adding rubber, thermoplastic elastomer, and other substances in the plastic to improve its toughness/impact strength, such as automotive, home appliances, and industrial use of common toughened polypropylene, etc.
3, Blending: two or more incompletely compatible polymer materials are uniformly mixed into a macro-compatible, micro-phase mixture to meet certain requirements for physical and mechanical properties, optical properties, processing properties, etc. method.
4, Alloy: similar to the blend, but the components are compatible with each other, easy to form a homogeneous system, and can obtain certain properties that can not be achieved by a single component, such as PC/ABS alloy, or PS modified PPO, etc.
5, Filling: by adding fillers in plastics to improve the physical and mechanical properties or reduce costs.
6, Other modifications: such as the use of conductive fillers to reduce the resistivity of plastics; add antioxidants / light stabilizers to improve the weather-ability of the material; add pigments/dyes to change the color of the material, add internal/external lubricants to improve the processing properties of the material, the use of nucleating agents to change the crystalline properties of semi-crystalline plastics to improve their mechanical and optical properties, etc.
While we also use a variety of modification methods simultaneously together, such as the addition of rubber and other toughening agents in the process of plastic reinforcement modification in order not to lose too much impact strength; or the production of thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) in the presence of both physical mixing and chemical cross-linking, etc.
We focus on what we’ve been doing: Custom Plastic Extrusion and Manufacturing. Our engineering team is composed of well-known experts with more than 10 years of experience in this plastic extrusion industry.
Our engineer can modify the material properties by adding functional additives to achieve high features such as anti-aging properties, UV resistance, corrosion-resistant, high strength.
