Description

Silicone Masterbatch is formulated with polyethylene in which poly-dimethyl-siloxane additives with ultra-high molecular weight are dispersed properly. This type of masterbatch is specifically used for enhancing the abrasion resistance in the end products along with imparting lubricity and minimizing lowering coefficient of friction.

Key Characteristics: –

  • Enhances the resistance of plastic against abrasions
  • Improves the lubricity properties
  • Reduction in friction coefficient
  • Reduced breakage when ejecting parts
  • Lower injection pressure
  • Translucent off white granules
  • Excellent light fastness
  • 50% silicone content
  • Good heat stability Compatibility with highly loaded PE, EVA or PP compounds
  • Available in free-flowing pellets form
  • Improves line speed up to 110%
  • Reduction in extruder torque up to 30%

Applications: –

  • HDPE optical fiber ducts
  • Silicone core pipes
  • HDPE boxes and bottles
  • Packaging films
  • Automotive interiors
  • Injection moulded items
