Modifiers

Kaneka Malaysia essentially produces a wide range of MODIFIERS and PROCESSING AIDS for the plastics industry. MODIFIERS alter the properties of the original plastics to improve on the lack of certain properties. In PVC, impact MODIFIERS are added to improve the impact resistance. In certain Engineering Plastics, MODIFIERS are added to improve appearance, impact resistance or even to provide flame-retardancy. PROCESSING AIDS, on the other hand are generally acrylic resins that improves PVC processability without diminishing the essential properties of PVC.

Kaneka Malaysia’s R&D and Technical Team is committed to provide support to all our customers based on their needs and various level of expertise.
