Improvements in Flow, Mold Release, and Coefficient of Friction Using Specialty Additive

Webinar: Improvements in Flow, Mold Release, and Coefficient of Friction Using Specialty Additives 


On Wednesday, August 25th, 2021 SACO AEI Polymers Distribution is hosting a webinar and we're inviting you to join us!

SACO AEI Polymers distributes specialty additives, including some unique silicone masterbatches and additives for Engineered Thermoplastics (ETP) that have been used to enhance flow and mold release and reduce the coefficient of friction in parts for better scratch & mar resistance.

This Webinar will discuss these products and go over some case studies where customers have been able to enhance performance or reduce costs of finished goods. It will be presented by a team that includes field technical development, research scientists and business development management. These products are available now with 3-day delivery, are FDA compliant and are cost efficient versus competitive products.
