Processing Aid

ASILEN PPA is specifically design to eliminate melt fracture and die build-up in order to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the plastic extrusion process. ASILEN PPA reduces gel formation as well as production down time by improving the process of lower MI resins, resulting in faster color changing and improved gloss and smoothness. 

Melt Fracture or “Shark Skin” typically occurs in LLDPE and results in irregular scaly-like texture to the film. It is caused by the friction of molten material and metal machine parts.
