News Arkema Introduces

News Arkema Introduces New PLA Processing Lubricant Arkema Inc. has added a new metal release lubricant to its Biostrength ® impact modifier line of additives for biopolymers. Intended for use in extrusion, injection molding and calendaring of PLA and other biopolymers, new Biostrength 900 metal release lubricant enables more consistent processing of PLA. A small amount of Biostrength 900 metal release lubricant enables a wider processing window during the processing of PLA, leading to lower scrap rates. Variations in processing temperatures and shear are minimized with the addition of Biostrength 900 metal release lubricant, enabling injection molding and calendaring operations that previously were problematic in the processing of PLA. “I’m pleased that Arkema’s talented team of scientists and application development engineers has developed a product with release properties that can enable the market expansion of PLA into more challenging processing environments,” said Peggy Schipper, commercial development business manager of Arkema’s Functional Additives business. “This product is a nice addition to our Biostrength line of impact modifiers and melt strength enhancers and fits well with our strategy to provide our customers additives that contribute to increasing the use of polymers made from renewable resources.” www.additives-arkema.com Principia Partners Announces...
