New additive for non-fogging release of TPOs
Axel Plastics Research Laboratories, Woodside, NY, Axel, has developed a new proprietary process aid additive, MoldWiz INT-33PAS. The new processing aid is designed specifically for moulding high impact and soft touch TPO resins. The novel additive aims to provide excellent release of parts from mould cavities while leaving parts residue free. The product was developed to address post mould fogging that can occur when volatile additives leech to the surface of finished parts over time. This is of special concern in the automotive industry, particularly when moulded-in color is increasingly being used to replace paint, or foil treatment.
