GENIOPLAST® PELLET P PLUS
GENIOPLAST® PELLET P PLUS is a pelletized silicone gum formulation with an outstanding high loading of ultrahigh molecular weight (uhmw) siloxane polymer.
GENIOPLAST® PELLET P PLUS does not contain any thermoplastic resin as a carrier but some quantity of fumed silica instead. Fumed silica as a constituent of the pelletized formulation does not show any adverse effect in the application when used as a compounding additive in thermoplastic systems to impart benefits such as processing improvements and modification of surface characteristics.
Comprehensive instructions are given in the corresponding Material Safety Data Sheets. They are available on request from WACKER subsidiaries or may be downloaded via WACKER web site http://www.wacker.com.
GENIOPLAST® PELLET P PLUS is an additive specifically designed for the compounding and masterbatch industry. Suitable equipment for compounding comprises twin-screw extruder, co-kneader, and batch-mixer. Because of its high thermal stability, GENIOPLAST® PELLET P PLUS can be applied over a wide temperature range, up to 300 °C (570 °F). Compounding and subsequent processing conditions are determined by the thermoplastic resin GENIOPLAST® PELLET P PLUS is added to. For the compounding process, GENIOPLAST® PELLET P PLUS can be added at the feeding zone of the extruder either as pre-mix together with the resin polymer pellets or via separate feeding unit; it can also be added via side-feeder. It is recommended to avoid pressure when feeding GENIOPLAST® PELLET P PLUS which may result in deformation of the pellets.
