The PPAs are designed to enhance the extrusion of thermoplastics
Dyneon GmbH, the fluoropolymer subsidiary of multi technology company 3M, will exhibit its latest products and technologies on its booth at Interplas, including 3M Dynamar Polymer Processing Additives to enhance polymer extrusion, 3M Dyneon Fluoroelastomers and 3M Dyneon Fluoroplastics.
Dynamar Polymer Processing Additives (PPAs) are fluoropolymer-based additives designed to enhance the extrusion of various thermoplastic polymers, improving quality and output. Typical extrusion processes that benefit from the addition of PPAs are blown and cast film, pipe, sheet, cable, compounding, but also extrusion blow molding, monofilament, tapes and fibers.
Dyneon says for many years PPAs have gained a widespread commercial acceptance improving the processing of high viscosity polyethylene such as linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE, mLLDPE) by reducing the apparent viscosity of these resins and hence facilitating increased use of these higher performance resin types in the film processing industry.
