Optislip™ 212 (bead)
Optislip 212 (formerly Crodamide) is a bio-based secondary amide additive. It is used to obtain medium or controlled slip in polyolefins. It is slower migrating, and therefore gives predictable slip performance. The additive is especially useful in co-extruded or laminated structures.
