As the particle size of the core shell rubbers is lower, coatings or parts prepared with this toughener are more transparent than those prepared with reactive liquid polymers, which can be opaque.
It is therefore of great importance to thoroughly understand the principles and fundamentals of different toughening mechanisms to effectively apply the appropriate toughener phase in order to meet the intended toughness requirement of a polymer.
The reason for the improved mechanical property is the fact that the MCs can enhance a value of--OCN groups and serve as toughener to blunt or pin the cracks growth inside the matrix (25).
Arkema says D440 is still the highest-performing acrylic impact modifier for PC and PC/PBT, but new D410 proves to be a better toughener for PC/ABS and has a unique processing advantage in PC as well.
It has been demonstrated that the spherical particles would be a more effective toughener than the elliptical ones (22).
