Flame Retardant has formula with thermal stability.

Suited for use in high- and low-density polyethylenes, AmpShield 1199 can be used at temperatures to 550°F in non-FDA extrusion processes and has minimal effect on resin tensile and elongation properties. Material imparts flame resistance to polyethylene matrix at addition rates as low as 12%, but 18-20% is recommended to ensure enough is present to prevent polymer ignition. Polyolefins...

Masterbatches minimize scrap in injection molding process.

Intended for use with engineering thermoplastics, Performance Plus(TM) color and additive masterbatches are formulated to lower resin viscosity during processing and optimize pigment and additive distribution. Lower viscosity allows injection molders to shorten cycle times by processing at lower temperatures. Masterbatches are not reactive or toxic, do not migrate, and are safe in all forms of...

Molecular Tracers protect against counterfeiting.

AmpaTrace(TM) adds distinct signatures to masterbatches, allowing flexible and rigid plastic packaging to be evaluated at any point in supply chain to resolve security, quality, and liability issues. Readily measured by standard laboratory analytical tools, tracers contain compounds that comply with FDA food contact regulations and do not affect package performance or appearance. Protective...

Desiccant Additive extends packaging shelf life.

Intended for use in translucent and opaque films made of low density and linear low density polyethylene, Masterbatch Product 101499 protects packaging from moisture penetration. It reacts with and binds water vapor as it enters film, extending shelf life of foods and pharmaceuticals. Compound can be used in blown and cast films, whether monolayer or multilayer, and complies with federal...

Additive makes LLDPE film clearer than base resin.

High-clarity slip antiblock, Product 102286 eliminates loss in clarity that often accompanies antiblock use by raising film clarity well above that of base resin. Product makes film up to 65% clearer 50% more glossy than base polymer. Mineral-based additive has narrow particle size distribution and spherical particles that have less impact on haze than irregular particles normally found in agents.

Multipurpose Additive increases film blocking efficiency.

Ampacet 102765 increases blocking efficiency in thin-gauge olefin films while reducing haze and coefficient of friction. Combining mineral and organic antiblocking agents, multifunctional additive does not affect sealability and can act as release agent in packaging for products where film must separate from contents. Product is targeted at high-clarity, flexible packaging used in food bag...
