KaneAce® products are resin modifiers created based on a multilayer-structure polymer particle design (core-shell technology). These products disperse uniformly throughout the base resin and add a variety of functions. Kaneka manufactures and sells products that modify impact resistance, heat resistance and flame retardancy as well as products that add a light diffusion characteristic and other properties.

A core-shell particle has a multi-layer structure, with a core at the center surrounded by a shell. By combining different core and shell materials, a variety of functions can be achieved. Some of the features are:

  • Since the particle morphology is uniform, physical properties of the base resin become homogeneous.
  • Addition of a small amount provides the desired effect, enabling full utilization of the original characteristics of the base resin.
