Plastistrength® Acrylic Processing Aids
Plastistrength® acrylic processing aids enhance the extrusion or injection molding performance of polymer compounds by promoting fusion, improving melt strength, eliminating surface defects, and decreasing plate out. Plastistrength® process aids also improve metal release and surface finish properties in extrusion or calendering. Vinyl compounds require less stearate, oxidized polyethylene, or paraffin wax with Plastistrength® process aids. Engineering resins like polycarbonate and its alloys gain better phase stability and easier processing with Plastistrength process aids.
