Additives for Injection Molding
PolyOne Introduces Excelite IM Chemical Foaming Additives
PolyOne, Cleveland, OH/USA, developed ColorMatrix Excelite IM chemical foaming additives (CFAs), formulated specifically for injection molding applications.
As a complement to the company’s liquid Excelite CFA portfolio for extrusion, Excelite IM CFAs are engineered for a wide range of injection-molded polymers, including olefins, PVC, polystyrene, PC/ABS, and high-heat materials.
Density Reductions and Smoother Surface Finishes
The new additives consist of a fully endothermic concentration that improves dispersion over conventional CFAs for enhanced performance and efficacy. According to the company, with Excelite IM, processors can achieve density reductions, smoother surface finishes, and notably reduced sink marks resulting in lower scrap rates and higher productivity.
Excelite IM chemical foaming additives are suitable for use in automotive, construction, commercial, personal care packaging, or structural foamed applications. Specific grades are also available to meet food contact requirements.
