Optimum use of processing additives
Dr. Joachim Bertrand Behn Meyer Europe GmbH
Processing Additives like the products of Performance Additives, Malaysia, optimize compounding, processing and moulding of rubber, TPE and plastic compounds. The underlying mechanisms of effect often relate to matching differences in polarity, molecular weight, and mobility of the components. Processing additives modify interactions between polymer chains, polymer and filler, filler and filler. The point of addition during mixing even optimizes the use of additives. These principles are explained and the main applications of the Ultra series of Performance Additives are explained.
