Balfour developed toughened poly(arylene ether) with improved transparency by adding radial and linear styrene-diene block copolymers, one or more optical enhancing agents such as alpha hydroxyl ketones, a hydrocarbon flow promoter
, cyclopentene, and other additives.
At this composition the HX4000 seems to act as a flow promoter
of the PEI-rich phase.
Key markets include use as an additive or flow promoter
in other resins, and to mold automotive body panels and lightweight structural parts, parts for electronics, wind turbine blades and fuel tanks.
The Hogan bin discharger, fitted between the Type 3 unit and the conveyor, also acts as a flow promoter
by using a suspended series of blades controlled by a vibrator to gently vibrate the powder into the conveyor.
Others are new suppliers who are emerging to develop improved polypropylenes, flow promoters
and decorating techniques.
These new dispersions contain no monomer or flow promoters
, and can be used in UV flexo, UV screen and some UV offset ink systems.
Included are internal and external lubricants, processing aids, flow promoters
, slip additives and antiblocking agents.
The transition hopper comes with pneumatic flow promoters
and an optional flexible screw conveyor.
Made by Fine Organics in India, the additives include internal and external lubricants, processing aids, flow promoters
, slip additives, and anti-block agents.
GE Plastics polymer scientist Adeyinka Adedeji says the company is working with blowing agents as flow promoters
for thin-wall molding of Noryl PPE alloys, ABS, PC, PC/ABS, PC/PBT, and PC/PET.
