GENIOPLAST® Pellet - Wacker Chemie AG


Reduce Costs and Improve Quality

GENIOPLAST® Pellets are silicone-based performance additives used in thermoplastics compounding in the plastics industry. They are supplied as handy pellets and, with their broad performance spectrum, can be used in all common production processes.

As a processing auxiliary, GENIOPLAST® Pellets save costs by:

  • preventing extruder drool
  • reducing die pressure and extruder torque
  • improving melt flow, which cuts costs by enhancing the process.

As additives GENIOPLAST® Pellets optimize compounds by:

  • increasing scratch and abrasion resistance
  • reducing the friction coefficient
  • improving tactile properties

One for all:

GENIOPLAST® Pellets are suitable for all thermoplastics.

GENIOPLAST® Pellets consist of a combination of high-viscosity silicone gum and a specially tailored silica. This chemical structure means that they are fully compatible with all thermoplastics. Thus, a single silicone additive can be used to enhance a huge variety of compounds. Important mechanical properties of the compound remain unaffected: hardness, heat resistance and tensile strength are unchanged. Other mechanical properties such as elongation at break and impact strength even show improvements, especially in mineral-filled compounds.

GENIOPLAST® Pellets can also be used in food-contact applications.

GENIOPLAST® Pellet S is recommended for all technical applications. GENIOPLAST® Pellet P Plus is particularly suitable for food-contact applications.
