nanoMax masterbatches can be processed in common equipment to achieve nanoclay dispersion. No
additional compatiblizer is needed in the processing step. For highly filled resin systems, such as Mg(OH)2
filled FR system, we recommend using a twin screw extruder to disperse the masterbatch into the final
formulations. For some applications, nanoMax masterbatch products can be dry mixed with the resin in the
injection molding stage. For detailed nanoMax processing guidelines, please refer to Nanocor Technical
Data Sheets P-804.
nanoMax masterbatch products are available in several carrier resins: PP, TPO, PEs and EVA. The EVA
and PEs grades are designed mainly for flame retardation applications. PP and TPO grades can be used to
boost mechanical properties as well as flame retardation applications. For PP and TPO FR compounds,
nanoMax-PP-nH is designed for non-halogen systems such as Mg(OH)2 systems only. The TPO grade
includes a special impact modifier, which improves stiffness while at the same time maintains high impact
strength, even at low temperatures. nanoMax-PP-HiST can be used to formulate high impact and high
stiffness PP compounds.
nanoMax® is a series of Nanomer-polyolefin resin masterbatch products. They are the first nanoclayproducts to feature a convenient pellet form. These masterbatch products are produced through meltcompounding based on patented technologies (US 6,462,122 and 6,632,868). They include allcompatibilizers needed to promote complete nanoclay dispersion. Typical of masterbatches, nanoMaxproducts offer excellent processability and can be used in a wide variety of equipment, including extruders,mixers, and even injection molders.Each nanoMax grade contains 50 wt% Nanomer® nanoclay. Addition of nanoMax into polyolefin improvesmechanical performance properties and flame resistance. Effectiveness of nanoclay added via nanoMax issimilar to well dispersed nanoclay in polyolefin resins. Letdown levels are commonly in the range of 8-12wt% nanoMax for mechanical improvement, and 2-8 wt% for flame retardation. nanoMax masterbatchproducts are very effective in flame retardation when combined with traditional flame retardants.
