Global Low profile additives Market: Overview
Low profile additives are thermoplastic polymers which are added to glass or polyester composites during the production process of composites for enhancing the surface finish and to shun the contraction. Composites tend to experience soaring contraction in the volume at the polymerization stage of unsaturated polyester resins. This ultimately results in meager surface appearance and also leads to internal voids and cracks. The mixture of low profile additives are and unsaturated polyester resins are used for avoiding the contraction at the polymerization stage and to maintain the dimensional stability of the composites.
Low profile additives Market: Segmentation
