Addressing Extrusion Problems with a New Generation of PPAs

Improve Extrusion Efficiency and Output Quality

Producers who manufacture extruded blown films and products like tubing, cable jacketing, and pipes typically encounter two main obstacles that impact product quality, production run rates, and yields: melt fracture and extrusion instabilities.

For years, manufacturers have added polymer processing aids (PPAs) to resins to reduce these common extrusion process problems. The Viton™ FreeFlow™ Z family of PPAs is a new generation of PPAs, which—when used in smaller quantities than previous generation PPAs—improves extruder efficiency and product quality.
