Introducing: Mel-aqua Hydrophilizing Agent

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Sanyo Chemical Industries is now introducing another innovative NEW developmental product: Mel-aqua Hydrophilizing Agent. Mel-aqua can be added to thermoplastic compounds to achieve dramatic increases in surface energy. This is especially relevant for POLYOLEFINS. Mel-aqua offers PAINTABILITY and BONDABILITY in polyolefin molded component applications. Additional benefits include possible elimination of surface treatment in current operations and conversion to water-based coatings. We plan for commercialization by 2020. Please note that this is a developmental product for only injection molded application, future formulation changes are possible, sample distribution is limited and subject […]

PELECTRON – Improved Film Heatsealing

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Did You Know: Antistats can affect the heatsealing of blown film, requiring an increase in heatsealing temperature or pressure or both. The good news is PELECTRON LMP-FS offers dramatically improved heatsealing characteristics. This allows the production of film packaging which is BOTH permamnently static dissippative AND ALSO easy to heat seal! Use the Contact Us link for information.

PELESTAT Application Spotlight: Bulk Bags

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Did You Know: PELESTAT has been used in “Bulk Bags” for many years. Also known as Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBC), these bags are used to package large quantities (up to 2,000 lbs) of powdered ingredients for the chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries. Normally, transfer of dry powders can cause dangerous static charge buildup, leading to explosions. However, PELECTRON, used in Type “D” Antistatic FIBC bags, prevents this by dissipating static electric charges as they are generated without the need for a ground wire. Surface resistivity values down to 10E9 […]
