Ingenia Polymers of Houston, Texas, is releasing a new, high-clarity anti-block masterbatch.
The firm says IP 1091 is aimed at polyethylene films. The anti-block binds within the polymer matrix to provide permanent anti-blocking properties. While reducing blocking, the masterbatch maintains low film haze and high clarity compared with conventional anti-blocks, Ingenia claims.
Tests showed Ingenia 1091, containing 25 percent of a proprietary anti-block, gave higher clarity film than a masterbatch made with diatomaceous earth, a widely used anti-block in blown film.
