ACCUREL® XP granules are porous carriers for liquid or low melting additives which are thermally sensitive, reactive, polar, hydrophilic, or hydrophobic. ACCUREL® XP granules are made from different polymers like PP, PE, EVA, EMA, PS, PET, PA6, PA12, PC, PLA, ABS, SAN, PMMA, PVOH.
The porous structures in the polymer carriers act like tiny sponges which absorb the additives through capillary forces and keep them inside. Depending on the nature of the additive slightly elevated temperatures, vacuum, and/or wetting agents may accelerate the additive loading process without exposing the additive to an additional heat history.
A selection of additives, which can be loaded on ACCUREL® XP carriers:
- Antifog additives
- Liquid antioxidants
- Reactive agents (silanes, peroxides, TAC, TAIC, TMPTMA)
- Coupling agents
- Halogen free flame retardants
- Water, water-based dispersions, salt solutions
