Description

Desiccant additive masterbatch designed to draw out moisture from plastics during melt processing.  Desiccant contains a special additive that chemically blinds with any moisture in the polymer melt in a non-reversible reaction that is stable at all polymer processing temperatures.  1% of masterbatch is recommended for every 0.15% moisture present in the polymer/compound.

Key characteristics

  • Highly Effective in reprocessed PE & PP
  • Reduces Lacing, fisheyes in blown films
  • Eliminates porosity, blowholes caused by moisture
  • Reduces gels caused by moisture
  • Reduces Production losses
  • Reduces need for preheating

Applications

  • Reprocessed PP resin
  • Reprocessed PE resin
  • Slightly wet virgin PP / PE resins
  • PP / PE with embedded moisture
