World Minerals Inc. launched two extrusion aids for PVC.
Europerl 60 and Harborlite 205P are fine grades of alumino silicate that reduce die buildup and plate-out on the extrusion line. They also improve overall quality and surface finish of the extruded part.
The Santa Barbara, Calif., firm said the products allow longer production runs with fewer stoppages for cleaning. They inhibit buildup of hard deposits caused by minerals and softer, organic buildup associated with waxes. World Minerals claims they work with a variety of stabilizer systems, and with rigid and flexible formulations.
The additives are especially suited to pipe, door and window profiles, siding and other high-output extrusions.
