AMI Polyolefin Additives 2017
9 – 11 October 2017, Imperial Riding School Renaissance Hotel, Vienna, Austria.
Wells Plastics was delighted to able to present a paper at this prestigious international event showcasing Wells Plastics commitment to the technical development of advanced additive masterbatches and methods in which to evaluate the performance of such materials.
Dr Gary Ogden FIMMM CSci, Technical Manager, presented the paper to an international audience, entitled “The development and characterisation of anti-oxidant masterbatch for long-term stability of polyolefins”.
The paper discussed, that with Polyolefins (PE & PP) both prime and (in ever increasing volumes) recycled grades being expected to perform in ever more demanding environments for extended periods of time, how through appropriate additive selection and subsequent masterbatch formulation and compound production, the thermal stability afforded to polyolefin products can be characterised through the relatively simple but powerful analytical technique of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC).
The presentation was illustrated with data from a range of newly developed anti-oxidant masterbatches from Wells Plastics for polyethylene and polypropylene affording OIT levels of >90 minutes at 200°C
