Slip agents are chemical substances, which are
capable to adjust the needed slipping properties of the polymers.
The two different groups of slip additives are
distinguished. internal and external slip agents.
While internal slip agents improve the processability by better
melt flow due to the reduction of shear stress. External slip
agents mainly improve the slip properties of the final product.
Advantages of the use of internal slip agents
- Increase of the output
- Processing aid due to better melt flow
Advantages with the use of external slip agents are
- Better demoulding in injection moulding
- Reduction of friction of screw caps
- Better denesting properties of packagings
Depending on the requirements for long
therm slip properties we offer migrating or
non-migrating slip agents.
The combination of external slip agents with antiblock agents
is commonly used for achieving optimal slipping properties
on the surface.
masterbatches are concentrates
with internal and external slip agents and also mixtures of
both active ingredients.
provides mixtures for all common thermoplastics. They are
suitable for all applications in extrusion and injection molding.
We will gladly advise you which slip agent is
suitable for your application.
