Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a polyester commonly used in packaging application due to its clarity, strength and lightweight properties. The inclusion of additives and building blocks enables resin producers and processors to create premium PET products. As PET is increasingly used in more challenging applications, the inclusion of speciality additives can improve the processing and end use properties to give superior PET.
Easier Processing of PET
PET naturally exhibits very high surface friction, especially immediately after processing. This can lead to production issues such as poor mold release, problems with flow lines, increased scratching and reduced packing density.
Slip additives can be used to overcome these difficult problems. IncroMax 100 is food approved and suitable for use in resin, sheet and film applications.
