Polyvel masterbatches a wide variety of additives that modify the surface of the resin to reduce the coefficient of friction. The additives used include:
- Zinc stearate
- Ethylene bis stearamide (EBS)
- Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2)
These masterbatches are designed for injection molders, film processors and compounders to add surface lubrication and mold release properties directly into the resin pellet feed without release sprays or pre-compounded resins. This class of masterbatches can also serve as a process aid. In the case of molybdenum disulfide in nylon, the active ingredient will promote the growth of a fine crystalline structure through nucleation, raising the heat distortion temperature.
