Polymer Additives

DAIKIN's range of high-performance lubricants additives, anti-dripping modifiers, and processing aids allow for the processors and end-users to benefit from the properties of fluoropolymer in compounded materials. Blended in conventional polymers, they improve the final plastic or elastomer performances, facilitate their processing and increase processors yield.

DESCRIPTION

Benefits of Polymer Additives

The inherent features of material are sometimes not enough to meet the expected performance specifications or to fit in specific production constraints. Modifying surface properties of a given plastic or elastomer is amongst the most difficult to obtain. Industrial components such as gears may require higher lubricity for operating use; complex designed parts may demand an increased mold releasability to limit defaults or speed the production process. Processors and compounders may also look to better balance a formulation to optimize the overall system cost.

Polymer Additives platform

DAIKIN has developed a platform of additives and processing aids based on the Fluorine technology. With solutions, available for conventional plastics such as polyamide, polyacetal, polyester, polycarbonate or TPE, but also films, they impart to the final material the intrinsic properties of fluoropolymers. DAIKIN developed a range made of three high-performance product lines:
- PTFE micro-powder lubricant for improved lubricity of PC, PA, and other standard polymers
PTFE MPA anti-dripping agent offering UL94 VO, reducing the dosage of flame retardant
- Polymer Processing Aid – specially designed for blown and cast film extrusion

Features of Polymer Additives

DAIKIN additives and processing aids are the best solutions for compounders and processors looking for:
- Low friction
- Wear resistance
- Non-stick
- Anti-dripping
Also, they are suitable for films and cables producers seeking to
- Reduce melt fracture
- Improve gloss
- Reduced gels
- Reduced die build up
- Faster color changes
- Reduced die pressure
Combined with fluorocarbon or silicone oils, PTFE micro-powders participate in the formulation of high-performance lubricants and greases. PTFE based greases have a wide operating temperature range, very low friction, and a much longer usage time than standard lubricants.
Beyond the performance improvement of the newly compounded polymers or lubricants, DAIKIN expertise and additives solutions serve the plastic processors production yield, formulation cost optimization, and production efficiency.
