Indofil PMA-175 is an acrylic polymer having strong external lubricating and processing aid properties for rigid PVC. This is generally used in conjunction with main processing aid like K-120ND
Reduced sticking to hot metal surfaces at high temperatures.
Improved clarity and gloss.
Elimination of plate out.
Food contact applications possible.
Elimination of surface detects
There is no change in light transmission or haze when PMA-175 is added to general purpose clear compounds. In some cases, a better appearance is obtained due to improved surface of the fabricated part. Using conventional external lubricants for high temperature release, clarity is deteriorated. PMA-175 enables processors to lubricate at levels never before practical with clear PVC compounds. 3.4 Processing Aid Properties PMA-175 gives sufficient hot strength, elongation, homogeneity and fluidity.
Higher processing temperatures and production rates, improved clarity and appearance, improved roll release, without sticking or plate out, smoother rolling bank, better hot strength and improved thermoforming, improved print and ink acceptance make this grade perfect choice for people making calendered film.
Extrusion- Pipe & Profile :
Higher filler level for low cost formulation. Reduced sticking or decomposition at stagnation points on screws and dies, longer production runs, less downtime and improved processing efficiency, higher product quality and production efficiency minimized melt fracture or tearing.
Blow Moulding :
Longer running times, improved appearance, strength and clarity.
Injection Moulding :
Improved product quality and production rates, easier processing through tolerance of broader range of injection speeds and temperatures are the typical advantages you like for in such there are delivered by INDOFIL PMA-175.
Usage Level & Advantages:
0.5 - 3 pHr of PMA-175, External lubricants such as Paraffin Waxes, Fatty Acids, Monotonic Ester Waxes, Poly Ethylene Wax, Etc., Should be reduced.
At 1pHr of PMA-175, 1/3 of external lubricant should be reduced.
