Polymer compounds

A mixture is made of one or more monomers together with additives such as emulgators, humidifiers, pH steering means, softeners, flame-retarders, anti bacterial component. By this a compound or mixture comes about that will be used for coating. The choice of polymers is determined by the desired properties such as: thermoplastic characteristics, film application. Mechanical properties such as pull strength, stretch, shrink, toughness, .... adhesive properties, , abrasion resistance, good handle, visual aspect, suppleness, washing properties, good process characteristics, UV and ozone resistance, temperature sensitiveness, … Typical compounds can be mixtures of acrylates, polyurethanes, poyvinyl acetates, styrene butadies, natural rubbers, butyl rubber, nittyl rubber, silicones, polyesters, polyvinyl acetates, …
