This company has introduced Nychem® Poly4000 latex, a specialized waterborne, polybutadiene homopolymer for plastics impact modification and for specialty adhesives. The product is a new addition to the company's line of Nychem latex emulsions and expands the range of offerings into new application areas. The new emulsion is reportedly the softest polymer in the product line and can be used to modify the impact resistance of more brittle engineered thermoplastics, a new end-use application, and enhance low-temperature performance in applications such as adhesives. Historically, Nychem products can be used as saturants and in specialty coatings to improve the strength, abrasion and chemical resistance, as well as other performance characteristics of paper, non-woven, and textile and industrial coatings.
