Polyvel offers clarifying agents for polypropylene (PP) and polylactic acid (PLA) resins. The CAP- series was designed for PP. You can find more information on the PLA clarifiers here.
CAP10 is a highly dispersed clarifying agent for polypropylene homo and copolymers. CAP10 increases the number of polypropylene crystals growing from the molten resin. This results in spherulite sizes below the wavelength of light thereby reducing light refraction. Small crystals provide:
Typical properties of CAP10
free flowing pellets
Clarifying agent concentration
Use level (letdown)
1.0 – 1.25
CAP10 has FDA acceptance for use in food contact applications under 21 CFR 177.1520c. For more information or to receive a sample, please contact us.
