IncroMax™ PS (Bead)
Specifically designed for HIPS and GPPS, Incromax PS (Bead) is a friction reduction additive that allows for easier processing and improved mold release. Incromax PS (Bead) migrates to the surface where it forms a thin lubricating layer, which reduces friction to improve improve mold release, and the de-nesting and packing of preforms.
