ColorMatrix™ Apogee™ Glass Transition Enhancer
Apogee™ Glass Transition Enhancer for Process Optimization is a multifunctional additive for a range of thermoplastics (including polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC)). It reduces melt flow viscosity by lowering the polymer’s glass transition temperature (Tg). This lowering of Tg allows for reduced process temperatures, reduced cycle times, improved dimensional stability, and improved melt flow. Additionally, Apogee additive helps to break up laminar flow, which minimizes sinks and voids, improving part aesthetics.
Apogee Tg enhancer allows processors to achieve cycle time reduction by lowering the amount of heat energy needed to achieve suitable melt flow. Less heat during molding means shorter cooling times and quicker cycle times. An additional benefit of lower heat is an increase in dimensional stability.
