PLASTAID-T is a Multifunctional Processing Aid (MPA) for highly filled Polyolefins like Filled PP/PE compounds, Colour masterbatches, TPO/TPE compounds.
PLASTAID-T has sites available for hydrogen bonding and is therefore able to act as a coupling agent between base polymer and filler materials.
Appearance : Powder
Melting point: 110°C ± 10
Filled PP/ PE compounds based on Talc, Calcium Carbonate, glass fibre etc. PE based colour masterbatches
Flame retarded compounds
Highly filled TPE and TPO Compounds
Rubber modified polymer systems/elastomers
Thermosetting moulding powder, like PF moulding powder
SMC / BMC compounds
Lower viscosity and improved flow at processing temperature
Better and homogeneous dispersion of fillers and additives
Higher impact properties in talc filled PP Compounds
Reduced and more uniform mould shrinkage
Easier mould release in most systems
Better surface appearance
Nonoblooming properties permit painting or decorating
Lower die swell
More homogeneous dispersions of TPO blends and highly filled systems
In addition, PLASTAID-T can be also used in those standard unfilled polymers where reduced melt viscosity and flow improvement are desired at processing conditions. In many systems better surface appearance with lower and more uniform mould shrinkage is achieved. Property losses are negligible for most compounds at the normal addition levels of PLASTAID-T. It is also suggested as a lubricant for polyolefins, PVC, PS, ABS, PET and many of TPO and TPE systems. PLASTAID-T is also suitable for epoxy, phenolics, SMC/BMC and other thermosetting compounds.
Use Level: 0,5 to 1,5 % on totalcompound weight
