Product category: Lubricants


AXEL MoldWiz® process aid additives are unique chemical formulations focused on the needs of both compounders and molders. MoldWiz® additives are specially engineered for optimum performance, with unique formulations for commodity resins as well as engineering grade and advanced polymer resins.

MoldWiz additives can:

Improve resin flow
Provide easy release from mold cavities
Increase through-put in compounding or master batch operations
Promote dispersion of fillers and color
Reduce cycle time in injection molding
Enhance scratch resistance surface appearance of molded parts

MoldWiz® additives are available in 100% active powder, pellet, and liquid form, making these materials easy to use and highly effective at low addition rates. MoldWiz® additives can be used in masterbatch production, but they can also be added directly by metering, gravimetrically feeding, or simply dry blending.
