Plastic additives impart important properties to polymers, allowing materials to meet diverse application needs. Additives are commonly added to plastics in small amounts yet provide substantial changes such as increased impact strength, heat resistance, UV protection, and easier processing. Anti-dripping agents, for example, enhance safety under heat by preventing melting and flame spread. Polymer processing aids […]

Polymer Processing Aid: The Secret Condiment for Quality Plastics

polymer processing aid

Polymer processing aids are specialty additives used in thermoplastic manufacturing. They help optimize production and enhance the overall quality of finished plastic products. Such a valuable role requires more appreciation. During extrusion or molding, the polymer processing aid blends with base resin to decrease melt viscosity, improve melt flow, lubricate contacting machine parts, and reduce melt fracturing. This allows for faster cycles, […]
