The slip additive
needs some time to migrate towards the die wall and to establish a lubricating film there which allows the polymer melt to slip.
We realised that if we tweaked the properties then we could use it to produce a slip additive
for BOPP film, so, three years later that's what we've ended up with and we have chosen to launch it at Fakuma.
Troysol Z370 is a zero-VOC, APE-free multifunctional universal wetting and mar and slip additive
. In August 2010, its zero-VOC, APE-free Polyphase PW20 broad-spectrum dry film fungicide was approved by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada for the protection of interior and exterior paints.
Witco has recently introduced a reactive slip additive
for radiation-cured acrylic coatings that provides consistent coefficient of friction reduction over time.
Used as a slip additive
for low-density polyethylene (LDPE) blown film, Dow Coming MB25-035 masterbatch only needs to be incorporated in the outside layer of the film, unlike organics that are used in all layers.
Other notable additive introductions include a specialty additive masterbatch that offers high-barrier properties in PP food packaging; halogen-free flame retardants for polyolefin films and other thin-wall applications; a slip additive
for long-term stability of polyolefin films and caps/closures; and a new processing aid for PE films.
Comments: KS-717 is recommended for use as a slip additive
for UV ink systems that will provide a lower coefficient of friction (COF) of cured ink.
Another recent addition is Troysol Z370 universal wetting and mar and slip additive
. Other multifunctional additive product types include dispersants, which provide pigment wetting and dispersion as well as pigment suspension.
Incroslip polymer slip additive
uses new technology to combine the anti-friction benefits of erucamide with the stability benefits of behenamide.
Atmer 7510 is a 10 per cent concentrate of IncroMax 100, the company's slip additive
for use in polyester based polymers, in a PET carrier system.
