PPA Masterbatch

Process aid eliminate melt facture at given shear rate to allow for higher throughput before onset begins again. It is a Fluoro Polymer based processing additive Melt facture.

Melt facture is a surface roughness on films or other extruded shapes resulting from a slip/stick action on molten polymer exiting a die. It is most often seen with tougher resin such as LLDPE & HDPE. Also known as Sharkskin, Orange peel, Wavy zigzag.

Key Characteristics

  • Its incompatible with PO also act as lubricant.
  • Improve Polymer flow in extrusion.
  • Improve productivity.
  • Reduces back pressure.
  • No die buildup and die lines.
  • No gel formation.
  • Reduces back pressure.
  • Improves surface finish and gloss.
  • Quicker color changeover & reduces machine startup time.
  • Power consumption effectively reduces.
