Westlake Chemical 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 plus grades exhibit higher melting points than equivalent non-plus grades if the applications demands a higher service temperature. The enhanced polarity of the plus 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.
