3M™ Dynamar™ PPA Application Engineers want to hear about what you’re working on. If you’ve got challenges related to processing extruded materials, we want to help. For information, advice and collaboration, contact a 3M Technical Specialist.
3M™ Dynamar™ Polymer Processing Additives have helped manufacturers improve both quality and output for a variety of extruded products – from the plastic bottles and bags in your cupboard to construction materials like pipe, cable and even artificial grass. 3M™ Dynamar™ PPA are effective at low use levels (100–1000 ppm), so just a small amount can reduce common processing issues like die build-up and melt fracture. That results in better surface quality, less waste, increased productivity, and a smoother extrusion process from start to finish.
3M™ Dynamar™ PPA have been widely used in blown and cast film processes, pipe and sheet extrusion, cable, fibre and monofilament extrusion, blow moulding and compounding. They work by creating a low surface energy coating on the die surface. This allows the melt to slip through the die more freely and more easily, without sticking.

A key decision factor in PPA selection is the specific process (e.g. blown film) and related process parameters. The polymer type, rheology, and processing temperatures are important considerations in the choice of PPA type. Click on the button to contact a 3M expert for further assistance.
