SCONA® high performance modifiers

The BYK Kometra plastic modifiers of the SCONA® series have proven effective for years and are considered to be high performance modifiers with extraordinary properties.

SCONA® is the brand name of a family of chemically modified (functionalized) polymers produced using a patented process which grafts reactive monomers to free-flowing substrate polymers. The radical grafting in the solid phase following the substrate-phase polymerization process makes it possible to carry out targeted modifications on saturated polymers. Graft density, graft chain length, graft chain structure and the degree of cross-linkage can be adjusted with excellent reproducibility by selecting monomer and activation ratios over a wide range.

Specifically matched modifiers are available for the different applications and materials.
