De-nesting additive provides friction reduction
Ampacet DeNestur™, a new de-nesting additive masterbatch, provides processing benefits for thermoformers and injection molders, faster line speeds and less waste for packagers and processors, and quick and easy single-serve food and beverage tray and cup separation for retail operators and consumers.
DeNestur imparts an easy-glide, anti-static, no-stick characteristic for improving molder/thermoformer production output efficiencies and material cost savings by eliminating build-up from the mold and machine surfaces. No secondary top-coat application is necessary. Said to provide friction reduction of up to 70% for PET, PE and PP; from 25% to 50% lower force required for mold release and de-nesting; reduction in scratch depth of up to 50%, and improvement of 10-25% in packing density.
