TCV has developed technology to overcome the long-standing melt strength deficiency of polypropylene (PP). The paper will detail a way to modify conventional PP resins with zinc salts to achieve performance similar to high melt strength PP. TCV’s global business development manager Anthony Marozsan will present the paper on Feb. 28 at 11:30 a.m.
TCV will exhibit at booth 40, where attendees can learn how additives like Dymalink® coagents enhance plastic formulations with improved tensile strength, heat deflection temperature (HDT) and flexural modulus.
