SureFlo® Used as Flow Enhancer

SureFlo® has proven to enhance flow in a mold by postponing the crystallization of the base resin.

This reduction of crystallization temperature not only helps flow, but improves knit lines and enhances surface appearance. In commercial applications where customers are molding large parts with virgin, regrinds, or reprocessed resins, SureFlo® has proven to increase the flow of resin in to the mold. As an example, a customer molding a large (60 pound) part and utilizes 80-100% regrind, uses SureFlo® at a 5% loading and has been able to reduce the minimum melt flow from 8 down to 5. This significant drop in required melt flow, allows the customer to utilize less virgin resin as a melt modifier.
