Techmer PM has two new polymer modifiers.
The firm's new viscosity modifier, PM13030, cuts cycle time and reduces energy use through lower back pressure.
The Rancho Dominguez, Calif., company claims the product even works with ultrahigh-molecular-weight high density polyethylene, boosting throughput without affecting properties of films, profiles and molded products. Applications include food packaging, thermoformed parts and pipe.
The modifier is supplied in PE pellets, but custom formulations are also available.
Techmer's PPM12927 is an anti-fogger designed for polypropylene films and thermoformable sheet. The company claims the new product provides good clarity and transparency compared with anti-fogging additives developed for PE and used by PP processors.
