Action of Slip Masterbatches :
Fatty acid amides find application as slip additives. During processing these masterbatches are solubilized in the amorphous melt, but as the cooling of the polymer occurs the fatty acid amide is "squeezed" out forming a lubricating layer at the polymer surface. Addition of slip additive thus gives easy slippage of film over other surfaces.
AddKan Slow Slip Masterbatches :
AddKan Slow Slip additive masterbatches are based on highly pure erucamide- a slow slip additive.Films made with slow slip additives can be printed offline (after a few days) Normal addition levels vary between 1-3% depending upon desired reduction in COF or reduction in surface roughness.
AddKan Fast Slip Masterbatches :
AddKan Fast Slip additive masterbatches are based on highly pure oleamide – a fast slip additive.Oleamide migrates quicker than erucamide and is often called "fast blooming". However after a certain time the slower erucamide will provide films with a lower COF than oleamide. Erucamide is used in higher temperature processing applications and it also stays at the surface longer, not venting off as smoke. Oleamide is used where a low COF is needed in a short period of time, while the slower migration of erucamide can be advantageous in roll stock applications and on-line corona treatment.
Films made with fast slip additives should be printed immediately after they are made as later on Slip additives may hinder with adhesion of lamination films or printing inks.Normal addition levels vary between 1-3% depending upon desired reduction in COF or reduction in surface roughness.
