Solutions for Polyesters

The NEXAMITE® product range includes efficient IV enhancers/chain extenders for PET and r-PET. Our solutions improve the properties and processing of both virgin polyester and recycled polyester. Ready-to-use and without the need of any additional investments these masterbatches enable, with only a small addition level an efficient and fast way to increase the melt strength and intrinsic viscosity (IV) without the need of any solid-state polymerization in various PET applications.

Our latest development NEXAMITE® F101 is specifically tailored for r-PET fiber spinning. It enables the use of lower quality r-PET sources, not limited to bottle grade r-PET.

Properties:Effect:Benefits:
Improve hydrolytic stability
Increase IV and melt viscosity
Process stabilization
Reduced cost:– Enables use of higher amounts of r-PET and lower quality r-PET
– Eliminate or reduce the need of Solid-state polymerization
– More robust production process and higher productivity
– Ease of handling and dosing to improve working environment in the plant
Increased productivity:– A high melt strength enables the foaming process and production of high-performance foam products
– Stabilise process during film extrusion to avoid interruptions and loss of capacity
– Improved bubble stability in blow molding
More consistent melt viscosity
Improved product performance:Increased mechanical performance and product strength
