Axel Plastics Research Laboratories has added a mold-release process aid to its lineup.
MoldWiz INT-33PAS is designed for high-impact and soft-touch thermoplastic polyolefins that can stick in mold cavities.
The additive also reduces fogging that can result when volatile additives migrate to a part's surface over time, according to the firm.
The company is based in Woodside, N.Y.
Axel said its product is especially useful in automotive parts, where fogging can be a problem. The additive also ensures consistent color and surface finish over long periods.
The new product, a formulation of fatty esters and organic acid derivatives, is added to resins at loadings of about 0.3 percent, Axel said.
