Dow Introduces AMPLIFY™ IO Functional Polymers
Midland, MI.-The Dow Chemical Company today announced the addition of AMPLIFY™ IO to the company’s family of AMPLIFY functionalized polyolefins. The versatile Ionomers deliver a combination of performance, processing and economics that makes them ideal for demanding applications such as food packaging, medical and other retail packaging, molded durable goods, and impact modification for nylon.
AMPLIFY IO Functional Polymers deliver a unique blend of properties and ease of processing to deliver:
* Excellent optics for good product appearance;
* High-melt strength for outstanding thermoformability;
* Impact and abrasion/scratch resistance for durability; and
* Adhesion to polyethylene, metals, glass and nylon.
“The unique combination of processing and performance attributes of AMPLIFY IO enables these polymers to be used across a myriad of high-performance applications, from golf balls to beverage packaging,” said Chris McDougall, Dow’s global product manager for AMPLIFY Functional Polymers. “AMPLIFY IO is an important addition to the existing Dow family of products, and builds upon our commitment to innovation and meeting the needs of customers around the world.”
The AMPLIFY family of polymers benefits coaters, compounders, molders and fabricators in and across a number of markets. The AMPLIFY IO polymers can be processed via injection molding, films and coatings. In addition, they provide exceptional processability during extrusion.
The AMPLIFY™ IO functional polymers, ethylene acrylic acid copolymers, are currently available in a variety of sodium and zinc grades to suit different market and application needs. These Ionomers join existing AMPLIFY products AMPLIFY EA ethylene-ethyl acrylate (EEA) copolymers, and AMPLIFY GR maleic anhydride (MAH) grafted polyolefins.
