Struktol TR 044W provides a combination of viscosity reduction and mold-release characteristics for polycarbonate resins and compounds.

Struktol TR 044W provides a combination of viscosity reduction and mold-release characteristics for polycarbonate resins and compounds. The new additives give greater processing and performance capabilities for compounders, processors, and end users.

With loading levels as low as 0.2%, melt flow increases and allows significant improvements in mold filling and release. Improved processibility results in lower molded-in stress in injection-molding applications.

Struktol TR 063A, targeted for nylon 6 and nylon 66 compounds, has a novel chemistry making it compatible with polyamides and perform better than alternative lubricants such as montan ester waxes.

Struktol RP 28 is a compatibilizer and blending aid for incorporating regrind/ recycled product for a wide range of polymers. It can also be used as an alloying agent because it provides improved dispersion of the discreet phase polymer and mechanical bonding characteristics that result in better physical properties.
