METABLEN A type is acrylic-modified PTFE. With small amount of addition, it greatly improves the melt tension that is required in such processing as vacuum molding, foam molding, blow molding and profiling by minimizing increases in melt viscosity without sacrificing the inherent properties of thermoplastics.

Mechanism

[Close]

METABLEN A type is an acrylic-modified PTFE, it easily forms fine well-dispersed fibril in molten thermoplastic resin as network structure when kneaded under heating. This effect contributes to better processability of compound.
