Plastistrength processing aids help the processing of PVC by promoting fusion, improving melt strength, eliminating surface defects and decreasing plate out. They also enhance formulation metal release properties in extrusion and calendering applications while offering improved cost performance versus traditional lubricant packages.
NEW! Plastistrength® 557 General Purpose Acrylic Process Aid
Introducing Plastistrength® 557 acrylic process aid is an easily dispersed acrylic process aid that improves processing in a variety of rigid and flexible vinyl formulations by improving fusion. Formulations containing Plastistrength® 557 acrylic process aid flow smoothly without compromising hot melt strength. In applications where rheological properties must be controlled, it excels.
Plastistrength® 576 Process Aid
Plastistrength® 576 processing aid for the PVC foam, profile, siding and compounding markets. Plastistrength® 576 is designed to offer PVC producers a significantly wider processing window, especially at lower processing temperatures, than other competitive offerings. As a consequence, Plastistrength® 576 provides the right processing latitude for the development of stable, high output formulations based on either acrylic impact modifiers or CPE. Patents pending.

Plastistrength® 550 Process Aid
Plastistrength 550 is a medium molecular weight acrylic process aid that brings enhanced processability to most rigid and flexible vinyl compounds such as siding, profile, pipe, calendered sheet and blow molded bottles.
Plastistrength® 530 Process Aid
Plastistrength 530 is a very high molecular weight acrylic process aid that brings enhanced processability to high output extrusion, foam and highly filled compounds such as those found in wood-polymer composites.
Plastistrength® 551 Process Aid
Plastistrength 551 is a medium-high molecular weight acrylic process aid that brings enhanced processability at low use levels to most rigid and flexible vinyl compounds such as siding, profile, pipe, calendered sheet and blow molded bottles.
Plastistrength® 770 Process Aid
Plastistrength 770 is a lubricating acrylic process aid that brings enhanced processability through the exceptional metal release properties that it imparts to vinyl compounds.
Plastistrength® L1000 Lubricant
Plastistrength L1000 is a highly-efficient acrylic lubricant that offers excellent benefits to PVC compounders and processors. Plastistrength L1000 provides excellent metal release characteristics because of its unique lubricating properties. Due to its high-efficiency and low use levels, Plastistrength L1000 lubricant has little effect on clarity, heat stability, chemical resistance and physical properties. These characteristics combine to make Plastistrength L1000 lubricant ideal for calendering, blow molding and extrusion applications.
Plastistrength L1000 Lubricant is only available in the U.S. , Canada and Western Europe.
