INTAPOL masterbatches are based on a fluoro polymer which has a high affinity for metal and will form a surface coating on the extruder screw, barrel, and die which enables the polymer melt to pass through with less resistance, resulting in :
- Increased throughput,
- Elimination of shark skin,
- Back pressure reduction,
- Reduced die build up, and ultimately leading to reduction in power consumption,
Processing additives find use in a wide variety of applications from blow film to fibre, profile extrusion, pipe/tubing and cabling processes. They can be used with many polymers including LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, and PP.
Initially a dosage of 2 - 5 % based on formulation should be applied to obtain the required surface coating.
After 15 - 20 minutes, depending on some factors such as condition of equipments, resin rheology, a dosage of 0.5 - 2 % is usually enough.
It is FDA approved to be used in food contact application.
INTAPOL is supplied in pellet form, in 25 kg PE bags with PP woven laminated paper bag as outer layer.
Store in a cool and dry place to prevent moisture absorption.
We recommend that the prospective user determine the suitability of our materials before adopting them on a commercial scale.
