Enhancing optical and surface properties with 3M™ Dynamar™ Polymer Processing Additives

Contrary to the popular saying, people often do judge books – and most other products – by their covers. In fact, when it comes to packaging, first impressions are the most lasting… and surface defects can detract from consumer appeal. 3M™ Dynamar™ Polymer Processing Additives (PPAs) are a cost-effective, proven technology for improving surface quality in plastic packaging manufacturing.

Dynamar PPAs form a low-friction coating that prevents the polymer from sticking to the surface of an extrusion die. This helps eliminate die lines and the surface distortion known as melt fracture or sharkskin – enhancing surface gloss, clarity and smoothness in the end product.
