Dyneon, Oakdale, Minn., has added Dynamar FX 9614X and Dynamar FX 5922X polymer processing
additives (PPAs) to its product line. Designed to aid the processing of thermoplastics, the two
fluoropolymers are supplied in granular form and are Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-compliant.
According to Dyneon, FX 5922X and FX 9614X reduce apparent melt viscosity, which allows
high-strength, high-molecular-weight resins to be processed more easily. In addition, the additives
can eliminate melt fracture, as well as reduce extrusion pressures and die build-up in a wide range
of polyolefin resins.
