Applications Guide for Plastics: Features, Technology, & Chemistry Type

In plastics applications, Gabriel Phenoxy Resins offer a wide selection for your chosen technology. Phenoxy Resins find use in blends of PBT, PET, PPO, nylon, and polycarbonate resins for modifying physical properties such as tensile, flexural, and impact strengths. The addition of Phenoxy improves pigment/filler wetting for appearance and rheology control. Additionally Phenoxy resins are useful as compatibilizing agents for dissimilar plastics like polyolefins and polyesters.

Because of transesterification reactions Phenoxy resin can behave as processing aids with polyesters such as polyethylene terephthalate during extrusion.
