Optislip™ ER (Powder)
Optislip ER (formerly Crodamide) is a bio-based primary amide additive in powder form, providing an extremely effective slip agent in polyolefin films. Particularly useful when combining other powder additives, Optislip ER is the preferred amide for use in LDPE, LLPDE and PP. Optislip ER (Powder) also improves the dispersion of fillers in graphic arts and ink applications. It provides good oxidative stability, low volatility and excellent slip performance.
