Compatibilizer & Coupling agent 
Yparex® offers a wide range of maleated polyolefin based coupling agents and compatibilizers. These products are very effective in increasing the performance of compounds and fiber- and mineral-filled composites.

The amphiphilic (combined hydrophilic (water loving) and lipophilic (fat loving) nature of the Yparex® products makes them particularly suitable for use as polymer compatibilizers for multi-component systems. Any combination of (in)organic pigment, mineral filler, metal particles and olefinic resin matrices may benefit from the dispersing power of Yparex® grades. The addition of Yparex® improves the dispersion of colour pigments in master batches.

Coupling agents
Addition of just a few percent of Yparex® coupling agents results in a significant increase in notched and unnotched impact properties of fiber enforced polyolefinic material. The portfolio comprises a wide range of polymeric backbones, both in PE and PP, making them suitable for a wide range of compounds and composites.
A neutral colour is very important for coupling agents. The Yparex® coupling agents perform very well regarding colour. Whiteness index and Yellowness-index are among the best in the industry. 

New Yparex® materials 
Modification of polymers is the core competence of the Yparex® team, based on decades of experience. New materials are constantly investigated to see if they are suitable for addition to the portfolio. Customer-specific compatibilizers can be produced on request.
