Discoloration Resistant Polyolefin Films

Application: In the film industry, a selected set of circumstances and certain types of stabilizers can lead to discoloration due to inadequate stabilizer concentrations, harsh processing conditions, improper selection of white pigments, prolonged storage in a environment containing oxides of nitrogen (pollution), and even lengthy exposure to fluorescent lighting. A new approach to the problem with “phenol free” stabilization systems can suppress post extrusion discoloration in clear and white pigmented films.

Analysis of Film Extrusion Problems with Flow Simulation

Application: Computer simulation can explain certain flow behavior and phenomena that can occur during film extrusion. This understanding can correct a problem and improve product quality.
