Optislip™ SR (Bead)
Optislip SR (formerly Crodamide) is a refined stearamide in bead form, that provides anti-blocking performance at low temperatures. Optislip SR (Bead) is recommended for use in polyolefins and rubber where it quickly migrates to the surface of the polymer to form a thin lubricating layer which reduces coefficient of friction. This is particularly useful for adhesive pellets such as Polyamide and EVA hotmelts, or adhesive film as the amide quickly migrates to the surface and forms a non-sticking "release" layer, effective at low temperatures.
