Product Overview

Plastic Additivies

Ionic
An extremely effective lubricant and wetting agent that can be used in a wide variety of polymer systems. Also provides release characteristics.
Similar to TR 016 except the calcium ion is replaced by a zinc ion. Works well in HIPS, PS and color concentrates.
A blend of anionic and nonionic surfactants for areas where EBS is being used. An effective dispersant and wetting agent for pigments and fillers in a wide variety of polymer systems. TR 255 is the FDA version.
Specifically designed for use in highly loaded mineral filled polyolefins.  This unique additive allows compounders to utilize untreated minerals while maintaining or improving the processing and physical property characteristics typically associated with treated minerals.  Additional Information
Non-Ionic
A nonionic, ester-based wetting agent for polar fillers and pigments used for improved dispersion and metal release. Contains no metal ions.
A unique product that is a combination of blending aid compatibilizer with processing lubricant for use in both PC and PC/ABS blends as well as Nylon 6 and 6,6 compounds.  It can be used in FDA applications.  It is also ideal for use in recycled applications.  Click here for Nylon Compound  Click here for Recycled Content Compound
Resinous

A compatibilizer and blending aid that reduces splay in colored and/or filled olefins. Extremely compatible with olefins and can be used to increase extrusion output rates. Click here for Recycled Content Compound
Amides
Primary oleamide used as a slip agent in polyolefins. Its uniform bloom makes it a valuable flow and release agent in thermoplastics and thermoset elastomers.
Erucic acid amide used as a higher temperature slip agent. Its slower migration rate is beneficial for printing films.
Saturated primary amide which blooms in an invisible monolayer for surface appearance. Improved surface in rotomolded compounds.
Ethylene bisstearamide wax for a wide range of polymers used for improved dispersion of pigments and fillers and viscosity modification. TR EBS VG is manufactured from high quality vegetable acid with low iodine value.
Other
DSTDP and DLTDP thioester secondary antioxidants for use in conjunction with phenolic primary antioxidants in a wide range of polymers.

RP 06
RP 11
RP 37

Designed as lubricating viscosity modifiers for polypropylene, both virgin and recycled materials.  RP 06 contains an engineered odor neutralizer.  RP 37 is ideal for large increase in melt flow and contaminated recycle streams. Click here for Recycled Content Compound

Designed as an odor control additive for polyethylene and polypropylene based wood-plastic composites.  It is also effective in polymer systems containing recycled rubber and plastics content.  It is ideal for automotive and recycling applications for improving both odor during processing, as well as odor of the final part.

TR 052

A versatile additive that has found many uses in polymer applications such as compatibilization of dissimilar materials, dispersing agent and flow modifier. Click here for Recycled Content Compound

TR 055
(Espanol)

A combination product designed to offer more external lubricity for improved flow and metal release.  It has proven to be very effective in automotive applications to replace traditional lubricants for improved processing and end product properties, including better fogging characteristics. Additional Information

Metal Stearates
A high purity micro-bead or pellet form of zinc stearate. Used extensively in resin production, compounding and color concentrate production. Other grades include Vegetable Grade and Clear Melt.
A high purity, non-wettable, calcium stearate powder manufactured with high quality stearic acid.  For a low dust version, see Calcium Stearate GR (granule).

Engineered Thermoplastic Additives

Ionic
An efficient lubricant system that works extremely well in filled and unfilled nylon for processability improvement and increased output rates.
Non-Ionic
Provides flow and metal release with little or no effect on physical properties in most polymer systems. The best choice for polar or engineering resins. Very good heat stability.
Designed to provide improved processing characteristics of filled and unfilled polyamides.  Typical improvements at the compounding stage are reduced die build-up (“die bearding”) and die drool.  For injection molding applications, processors can expect to see better flow and mold filling vs. typical lubricants such as metal stearates or amide waxes.
A unique product; a compatibilizer with lubricants to create a combination product that aids in the incorporation of fillers (mineral or glass) with improved mixing and flow properties as well as mold release.  It is for use in Nylon 6 and 6,6 and has been found to also work in PET compounds, especially recycled applications or in the case of PET contaminated with other plastics.  Click here for Nylon Compound  Click here for Recycled Content Compound

Other
Natural refined wax designed to replace Montan Wax E as a general purpose lubricant and release agent in nylons.
Saponified, natural refined wax designed to replace Montan Wax OP as a general purpose lubricant and release agent in higher temperature nylons.
Metal Stearates
A high purity micro-bead or pellet form of zinc stearate. Used extensively in resin production, compounding and color concentrate production. Other grades include Vegetable Grade and Clear Melt.
A high purity, non-wettable, calcium stearate powder manufactured with high quality stearic acid.  For a low dust version, see Calcium Stearate GR (granule).
