Cylatec Inc. claims its new dispersing and processing aid increases wet-out of color, filler and other additives in concentrates. The Canton, Ohio, firm touts it as a safe, odorless replacement for wax.
CylaCell PA is a multicomponent, inorganic white powder that can reduce drive torque and increase productivity in compounding.
CylaCell PA acts as a coupling agent and viscosity depressant and is recommended at usage levels of 0.15-0.25 percent. Its wet-out capabilities can reduce pigment loadings, according to the company.
A spokesman said injection molders also could use CylaCell to improve processing of highly filled compounds.
