Abstract

Baker Petrolite Polymers (BPC) manufactures low molecular weight functionalized polypropylenes, polyethylenes and polyalphaolefins, such as acids, amides, alcohols and epoxides that can be used as compatibilizers, adhesion promoters, rheology modifiers and as co-reactants to react with various resins such as polyesters, polyurethanes, epoxies and acrylics to form modified resins for toner, ink and coating applications.

Baker Petrolite Polymers (BPC) manufactures low molecular weight functionalized polypropylenes, polyethylenes and polyalphaolefins, such as acids, amides, alcohols and epoxides that can be used as compatibilizers, adhesion promoters, rheology modifiers and as co-reactants to react with various resins such as polyesters, polyurethanes, epoxies and acrylics to form modified resins for toner, ink and coating applications. 

 

BPC discloses following benefits by using functionalized polypropylenes, functionalized polyethylenes and functionalized polyalphaolefins:

 

  • Reactions with functionalized resins to form toner resins that provide lubricant properties and improve uniform dispersion of wax in thermoplastic polymers.
  • As compatibilizers or processing aids to provide improved wax dispersions in thermoplastic polymers for various applications such as toners, coatings and thermal transfer layers to give good scratch resistance, abrasion resistance, corrosion resistance, good moisture barrier properties, release properties and reduced surface energy.
  • As adhesion promoters to enhance adhesion of toners to various media such as paper, coated paper, plastic films, etc.
  • As adhesion promoters to improve coating and ink adhesion on polyolefin films
  • As rheology modifiers to reduce viscosity in melt stage leading to improved coating flow, reduced surface defects and increased smoothness of coated film in powder coatings, coil coatings, etc. 
  • As release agents in toner to prevent offset, lubricants for halogenated polymer such as polyvinyl chloride and release agents for polyurethane and engineering resins
  • As slip and anti-blo...
