Scratch Resistant Arm Rests

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.

Just 2-3% added to your polymer can add silky and scratch-resistant properties to office furniture arm pads/rests.

Spotlight on PEarlene:

  • Improved mar resistance
  • Improved scratch resistance
  • Improved lubricity of fabricated part
  • Non-migrating and non-blooming/non-fogging behaviour
  • Improved impact resistance
  • Increased fabrication line throughput
  • Reduced extruder head pressure
  • Reduced energy usage in processing. Improve mechanical properties like impact etc.
  • Non-halogenated flame retardant additive
