TapBio® Compostable Slip MB is used in compostable plastics for reduction of surface friction during the film extrusion process.
The masterbatch is loaded with fatty acid amide slip agent which is a very effective slip agent for compostable plastics. Post extrusion the fatty acid amide molecules migrate to the surface of the film hence creating a lubricating surface which helps in bag opening as well as the cutting and sealing process.
It is not necessary to use corona treatment in most cases if TapBio® Slip MB is used. TapBio® Slip MB gives great compatibility with compostable compounds by dry blending itself. The additive system needs to be adapted to the composition of the blend and the requirements of the application.
