Optimum performance in most polymer applications is reached at NAFEN concentrations of 0.4% to 0.6% (percentage by weight) in the final polymer formulation. Improvements range from +30 to +100% in:
Flexural and tensile strength (and modulus)
Elongation at break
Hardness (wear/abrasion resistance)
No effect on color and transparency
NAFEN is chemically inert so it won’t interfere with conventional reinforcing agents, pigments, etc.
Small things making a big difference
