Fluoropolymer based polymer processing additives (PPAs) are frequently used in the polyethylene industry. Besides their ability to eliminate melt fracture and die build-up, PPAs are used to optimise the process conditions in a wide range of applications without having to make compromises on the properties of the final products. This paper explores technical experiments showing how Dynamar™ PPAs will improve the various aspects of polyethylene extrusion, which results in a broader processing window for the plastic converter, without negative effects on the mechanical properties of the pipes.
