 Endex1020™

Endothermic Chemical Foaming Agent and Process Aid

 

n  INTRODUCTION:

Endex1020™ is a high efficiency, pelletized concentrate in a thermoplastic polymercarrier. It is designed for use in moisture sensitive engineering plastics,especially POLYCARBONATE and PET. It is intended to be used at high processingtemperatures, 205 - 315°C (400 - 600°F).

 

Endex 1020™ endothermic chemical foamingagent utilizes innovative technology to produce superior quality foamedproducts. It generates fine, closed-cell foams, which result in moldings andextrusions of high quality.

 

Endex 1020™ processing aid can be used ininjection molding for cycle time reduction, improved polymer flow,  improved weld line strength, and to eliminatemolded-in stresses, warp and sinks marks.

 

n USAGES:

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

• STRUCTURAL FOAM MOLDING (SFM): GASCOUNTER-PRESSURE SFM.

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

•GASASSIST, GAS INJECTION MOLDING: flow enhancement, sink elimination.

• Extrusion of Sheet, Film, and Profiles.

 

n USE LEVELS:

Endex 1020™ use levels will vary with the application,but the following guidelines can be used as a starting point. Optimization foreach 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 % 


Endex 1020does not have to be dried with the resin used as long as the resin is driedaccording to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

 

n ADVANTAGES FOR PLASTIC PROCESSOR:

Endex1020™ has many advantages for the plastics 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:

Endex1020™ is available in 50 lb cartons or 1000 lb boxes.
