Dow to introduce new silicone slip additive for BOPP film
Dow Performance Silicones, a global business unit of DowDuPont Materials Sciences division (Midland, Michigan),will introduce at Fakuma 2017 (17-21 October in Friedrichshafen, Germany) a unique new technology based on the heritage Dow Corning silicone technology platform, for bi-axially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film production, and highlight recent additions to its expanding portfolio of materials.
The new technology to be introduced at Fakuma 2017 is a slip additive that provides a solution to common challenges in processing BOPP film for packaging production, surpassing standard organic slip agents in terms of performance. It is non-migrating across film layers and delivers stable slip performance over time and under high-temperature conditions. Further, the new product can help control costs.
