Overview

SureFlo® LV is a high-performance multi-functional flow enhancer designed for thermoplastic resins. SureFlo® LV is particularly effective in lowering viscosity for high viscosity resin systems and lowering processing temperatures.

Advantages

  • Reduces viscosity enabling faster cycle times, extrusion rates, processing rates, and reduced energy consumption.
  • Allows reduction in process temperatures for reduced energy consumption and cycle times.
  • Improves surface appearance, especially for highly filled glass composites.
  • Reduced scrap rates resulting from short shots, flow lines, and knit lines.
  • Improves mold flow for better part fill and reduced surface imperfections such as tiger striping.
  • Homogenizes variable and mixed feed streams for lower raw material costs and reduced scrap.
