Endex 1725™

Endothermic Chemical Foaming Agent and Processing Aid

 

n  INTRODUCTION:

Endex 1725™ is a 50%concentrate in a polymer carrier. It can be used in a wide range of com- modityand engineering plastics, combining quality and efficiency with the benefits ofversatil- ity and cost effectiveness.

 

Endex 1725™ utilizes innovative technology toproduce superior quality foamed products. It generates fine, closed-cell foams,which result in moldings and extrusions of high quality.

 

Endex 1725™Processing  Aid can be used in injectionmolding for cycle time reduction, im- proved polymer flow, reduced processingtemperatures, improved weld line strength and to eliminate molded-in stresseswhich cause warp and sinks.

 

n USAGES:

Endex 1725™ is intended for use in a widevariety of processes, including:

• Injection molding for cycle time reduction,sink marks, warp reduction, and shrink control.

• Structural Foam molding (SFM). GasCounter-pressure foam molding.

• Nitrogen SFM for finer cell structures andextra weight reduction.

• Gas Assist molding for extra weightreduction and sink elimination.

• Extrusion of Sheet, Film, and Profiles.

• Blow Molding, Rotational Molding.

 

n USE LEVELS:

Endex 1725™ 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

1.00 %

• Sink Mark Elimination

0.20 %

• Nitrogen Foam Molding

0.30 %

• Extrusion and Blow Molding

0.30 %

 

n ADVANTAGES FOR PLASTIC PROCESSOR:

• 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 1725™ is available in 1000 lb boxes.
