Silicone-based performance additives.

Silicone additives for thermoplastic compounders are offered by this company. Genioplast Pellet S is said to not only improve the processing and surface properties of polymer compounds, but also optimizes the compounding process, according to the company. Genioplast Pellet S is pelletized, which is said to make for easy metering and processing.

Genioplast Pellet S's combination of a high-viscosity silicone gum and specially modified silica is said to offer maximum efficiency, plus universal compatibility with all thermoplastics. That makes traditional masterbatches quite superfluous, according to the company. The compounder is said to get by with just a single product, which greatly simplifies logistics and warehousing. The additive is said to find easy application in the continuous compounding of any type of base-polymer, and can be combined with other additives, as well.

Genioplast Pellet S is said to improve processing and flow properties, and reduces die deposits. Both compounders and processors are said to be able to increase throughput, reducing energy consumption and, hence, production costs, according to the company.

Genioplast Pellet S is said to considerably improve the mechanical properties of a compound. The end products display scratch- and abrasion-resistant surfaces, and become smoother and glossier, according to the company. Preferred applications for this silicone additive include compounds for cables, white goods, molded automotive parts and more.
