Used commonly in PE and PP films, amides give slip and antiblock properties without compromising clarity. Applications include our everyday food packaging and plastic bags, as well as agricultural films.
When amides are not directly incorporated into polyolefin resins, or if an additional dosage is required, they can be added as components of masterbatches and compounds to suit the needs of the end user.
In paint, ink and dye, amides can serve as pigment dispersing aids and also as thixotropic agents to increase product viscosity.
In both injection and rotational molding processes. Amides can serve as a mold release agent. They also improve the product surface finishing and add a scuff resistant property, thus reducing wastage and product defect.
Our slip agents , namely oleamide, can be used in lubrication oils and greases to enhance their friction reducing performance. They can also be used to control viscosity.
Not only do amides serve as internal lubricants that facilitate rubber processing, they also serve as dispersing aids for pigments (e.g. carbon black). They are also used as a release agent in rubber molding operations.
