SureFlo® Used as Compatibilizing Agent

SureFlo® was developed as a homogenizing and compatibilizing agent, utilizing some of the same chemistry that Flow Polymers developed years ago in Promix®. Our long history of selling compatibilizers to the rubber and tire industry allowed us to enter the plastic marketplace with a similar product. If your company is working on sustainability projects and wants to reduce your carbon footprint, SureFlo® could be the answer. Below is a microscopy image of a nylon which has been contaminated with 10% polypropylene. It becomes apparent that with the addition of SureFlo®, the domain size of the contaminant (PP) is reduced by 50%, highlighting the homogenizing effect of SureFlo®. Customers who are utilizing regrinds or reprocessed resins will almost always have some level of contamination, and in today's marketplace the variations are becoming wider. SureFlo® has proven to help eliminate splay, give a better surface appearance, maintain physical properties of dis-similar resins, all through its properties of compatibilization.
