PARALOID™ K-120ND Acrylic Processing Aid

Readily dispersible acrylic processing aid powder is designed to improve the processing of rigid and flexible vinyl (PVC), allowing compounds to fuse rapidly, flow smoothly, have excellent hot metal strength, and improved surface appearance.

Uses:

  • Specialty injection molding
  • Vinyl applications that require critical rheological properties
  • Blow-molding bottles
  • Rigid and flexible calendered film
  • Extruded construction products
  • Blown or extruded vinyl film
  • Packaging film
  • Rigid containers
  • Technical film
  • Fence, deck and rail
  • PVC plastics
  • Siding
  • Window frames/profiles
  • Finished parts
  • Foam modified for the industry standard of foamed PVC
  • Used in cellular PVC to raise melt strength and impart lubricity during extrusion
  • For use as an impact modifier for high output profile extrusion
  • Foam core pipes
  • Foam profile formulations
  • Cellular vinyl sheet applications

Benefits:

  • Clarity and excellent dispersion
  • Shortened fusion time
  • More homogenous melt
  • Excellent melt strength and parison control
  • Smooth, glossy surfaces free of surface imperfections
  • Increased output rates and improved production efficiency
  • Improves flow characteristics of vinyl compounds, resulting in fewer defects
  • Improves processing of high-molecular-weight vinyl without significantly affecting its physical and chemical properties
  • Compatible with all commonly used grades of vinyl resin
  • Prevents shredding and significantly improves calendering
  • Lower-dusting properties help to reduce safety hazards
  • Imparts melt homogeneity to rigid vinyl, resulting in improved weld-line strength, mold cavity fill, and uniform gloss
  • 25% efficiency improvement over standard process aids
  • High dispersibility in PVC melt
  • Excellent fusion promotion
  • Outstanding melt strength enhancement
  • Reduces sticking and plate-out without affecting the clarity or compatibility of the vinyl
  • Reduce foam density and increase impact strength
  • Multi-functional process aid incorporating lubricating properties with melt strength enhancement
  • Low torque
  • Fusion adapted to latest equipment
  • High melt expansion
  • Low density
  • Low density
  • Lower use cost
  • Improved dosage efficiency compared to PARALOID™ K-400
  • Excellent sheet uniformity
  • Gelation rate adapted to latest equipment
  • Low density foamed-PVC
  • Faster fusion speed than peer grades
