Microthene F Improving Flow of Tacky Pellets and Crumbs

 
Microthene micro fine powders are produced using a unique proprietary technology. Microthene particles are chemically inert, uniform, spherical with an average particle size of about 20 microns. It requires low addition rates and demonstrates lower caking (less maintenance and downtime); hence provides cost savings with higher quality and higher customer satisfaction. The end-product can be used in thin film and clarity applications.
