Products :: Specialty Polymers :: EMAC+® and EBAC+® Blocked Copolymers EMAC+® and EBAC+® Blocked Copolymers Product Attributes Westlake Chemical Company manufactures EMAC+® and EBAC+® blocked copolymers that offer improved adhesion and compatibility over conventional ethylene methyl acrylate copolymers using patented high-pressure reactor technology. Although EMAC® resins is already highly compatible and offers excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates, the plus polymer technology enhances these performance characteristics. EMAC+® copolymers can be used in film, co-extrusions, blends, coatings, laminations, polymer modifications, and molding applications. The “+” grades exhibit higher melting points than equivalent non-plus grades if the applications demands a higher service temperature. The enhanced polarity of the “+” grades allows for additional compatibility in polymer alloys. They also offer better clarity in blends and improved processing. Physical properties such as low-temperature impact strength and flexibility in PET, PP, and nylon systems may be enhanced by using EMAC+® resin as a modifier. Plus grades also exhibit a higher COF or “surface tack” for nonskid or high-grip surfaces.
