Optislip™ OR bio-based, unsaturated primary amide additive produces excellent slip performance in polyolefins. Optislip OR quickly migrates to the surface of the polymer to form a thin lubricating layer. This reduces the coefficient of friction and prevents any unwanted adhesion.
Optislip™ OR amide additive can be dispersed evenly through the polymer in the melt phase. It migrates to the surface of the polymer where it forms a thin lubricating layer. This layer reduces coefficient of friction between surfaces and reduces unwanted adhesion.
Guidelines for Use:
Optislip™ OR internal additive can be incorporated into resin as supplied or via masterbatch / pre-blend. Experience has shown that simple manual mixing prior to processing will normally give an acceptable dispersion, though mechanical means are preferred.
Typical addition levels vary depending on polymer and lubrication required.
Recommended levels are around 500 - 2000ppm in films and 0.2 - 1.0% in molding applications.
