PEARLENE

PEarlene™ silicone masterbatches are a family of functional masterbatches containing high levels of ultra-high molecular weight polysiloxane, which are melt compounded into a polymer carrier.

PEarlene silicone masterbatches provide improved processability (extrusion rate, mould fill and power consumption) and performance (mar and scratch resistance and impact resistance) when used to compound or extrude certain plastics, copolymers or elastomeric formulations.

These masterbatches modify the rheological characteristics of the resin or compound, which may allow for increased throughput in fabrication operations as well as reduction in drive torque and machine head pressure. Typical benefits of increased throughput in fabrication operations, as well as reduction in drive torque and head pressure, may allow for a savings in manufacturing variable costs.
