 Endex 1010™

HighTemperature Endothermic Chemical Foaming Agent and Process Aid

 

n  INTRODUCTION:

Endex 1010™ is a high efficiency, pelletizedconcentrate in a thermoplastic polymer carrier. It is designed for use inmoisture sensitive engineering plastics, especially POLYCARBONATE and PET. Itis intended to be used at high processing temperatures, 205 - 315°C (400 - 600°F).

 

Endex 1010™ endothermic chemical foaming agent utilizesinnovative technology to produce superior quality foamed products. It generatesfine, closed-cell foams, which result in moldings and extrusions of highquality.

 

Endex 1010 processing aid can be used in injectionmolding for cycle time reduction, improved polymer flow, improved weld linestrength, and to eliminate molded-in stresses, warp and sinks marks.

 

n USAGES:

• INJECTION MOLDING:cycle time reduction, sink marks, warp reduction, shrink control.

• STRUCTURAL FOAM MOLDING (SFM): GAS COUNTER-PRESSURESFM.

• NITROGEN (SFM):void reduction, consistent part weights, higher impact strength.

• GAS ASSIST, GAS INJECTION MOLDING: flowenhancement, sink elimination.

• EXTRUSION: Sheet,Film, and Proles.

 

n USE LEVELS:

Endex 1010™ uselevels will vary with the application, but the following guidelines can be usedas a starting point. Optimization for each application is recommended:

• Structural Foam Molding

2.0-3.0 %

• Sink Mark Elimination

0.3-0.5 %

• Nitrogen SFM, Gas Assist-injection

0.3-0.5 %

• Extrusion and Blow Molding

0.5-1.0 %

 

 

n ADVANTAGES FOR PLASTIC PROCESSOR:

Endex 1010™ has many advantages for theplastics processor, including:

• Fine cell structure

• Shorter cycle times

• Faster extrusion

• Thick, smooth skins in SFM

• Fast degassing

• Fast painting and decorating

• No plate-out on molds

• Beryllium-copper compatible

• G.R.A.S. or FDA sanctioned ingredients

 

n PACKAGING:

Endex 1010™ is available in 1000 lb boxes.
