Axel Plastic Research Laboratories says it has developed a new process additive that can dramatically improve the processing efficiency for compounders of resin and pigment masterbatches. In one particular evaluation the additive, MoldWiz INT-40DHT, was credited with a 48% increase in processing throughput of a 75% filled TPO.

INT-40DHT is a proprietary formulation comprised of saturated and unsaturated fatty esters and modified organic acid derivatives, and is suitable for use in compounds which have food contact. The additive, when added in concentrations as little as 0.45%, works by reducing the viscosity, facilitating much higher loading levels of mineral fillers.
