Abstract

Maleic anhydride ("MAH") can be grafted to ethylene styrene interpolymers ("ESI") and provide an improved impact modifier in engineering plastics such as polyamides for various applications. It was found that Nylon compounds based on the MAH grafted ESI ("MAH-g-ESI") show advantages in: Impact resistance, Processability and flow(improved molding cycle), Scratch resistance, Controlled low gloss level desirable for e.g. automotive interior applications and Heat performance.
