Optislip™ EBO (Bead)
Optislip EBO (formerly Crodamide) is a bio-based secondary bis-amide additive which can be incorporated directly into polymers to prevent any unwanted tack and adhesion. Polymers with a soft or tacky pellet form such as ethylene vinyl acetate copolymers (EVA) and styrene butadiene copolymer (SBC) often exhibit adhesion between polymer pellets when exposed to elevated temperatures and pressures. Optislip EBO can be incorporated directly into these polymers helping reduce contact area between pellet surfaces and prevent any unwanted tack and adhesion.
