 are all-acrylic or MBS impact modifiers for vinyl and other engineering resins. Paraloid KM-300, Paraloid KM-5000/4000 series and the premium Paraloid KM-X100Pro all-acrylic impact modifiers add toughness, color retention and weatherability to vinyls for long-term outdoor exposure. KM-X100Pro and KM-5450 include processing aid. Paraloid KM-377 acrylic impact modifier can reduce gloss significantly. Specialized additives or processing is not necessary to attain a premium wood-like siding surface. Paraloid KM-377 will also narrow the variability in gloss due to processing variations. Paraloid BTA-700 series MBS impact modifiers give superior toughness in nonweatherable applications. BTA-736S offers high-impact efficiency with superior clarity and good resistance to crease whitening. BTA-753ER gives maximum toughness at ambient or low temperature in general-purpose opaque vinyl. Paraloid EXL-3300 series acrylic tougheners are for weatherable applications of engineering resins requiring good color retention. EXL-3330 offers good inherent thermal stability, resistance to uv degradation, and balance of toughness. EXL-3361 gives enhanced thermal stability and good balance of properties including colorability. Paraloid EXL-3600 series MBS tougheners for engineering resins give superior low-temperature impact resistance. EXL-3611 is a reactive toughener for nylon. EXL-3691A is a general-purpose toughener providing a balance of low-temperature impact resistance and modulus for engineering resins. The Paraloid series of specialty and multifunctional additives are designed for adding only one product to the blending operation. Paraloid KM-5450 and Paraloid KM-X100Pro contain impact modifier and processing aids. Paraloid multifunctional additives are blended in a liquid state and isolated into powder as one product. This ensures accurate ratios of the components and consistent performance.
