Application in plastics industry:
As a lubricant, anti-static agent, non-toxic plasticizer, anti-aging in the production of polymers plastics, packaging films. Can improve the flexiblity, plasticity and anti-static properties. Is used e.g. in the manufacturing of polypropylene-caps to provide a slip/lubricant effect in addition to an anti-static effect. In agriculture plastic films as anti fogging agent. It is used as a process aid in production of expanded polyethylene to improve gas exchange.

Product benefits:
  • Reduces friction during the extrusion process, giving a uniform cell size distribution and is
improving the gas exchange.
  • It is compatible with anionic, cationic and non-ionic surfactants and has exceptional
  • electrolyte tolerance.
  • It has effects of emulsification, dispersion, foaming, defoaming and starch anti-aging.

  • Product dosing:
    We strongly recommend testing of your own system under the actual conditions of processing and end-use prior to full scale testing. Exact loading must be determined by composition of the specific polymer system.

    Other applications:
  • Cosmetic uses, as a co-emulsifier of emulsions, to modify viscosity and inprove stability.
  • As an emulsifier in the production of foods, including ice cream, chewing gum, toffee,
  • shortening, margarine, starch etc.
  • Anti-aging agent for starch.
  • Protective coating for hygroscopic powders.
  • Packaging:
    25 kg bags
