Clariant is set to present its latest solutions to support the plastics industry to improve safety and efficiency, increase circularity, and reduce waste at NPE2024, happening now in Orlando, Florida.

"Since K 2022 our experts have been developing industry-leading products that minimize the impact on human health and the environment while maintaining or exceeding performance expectations,” commented Miao Zhigang, Head of Clariant’s Polymer Solutions business.

“We are very pleased to be unveiling our new AddWorks PPA, our PFAS-free Additives line at NPE2024.”

At NPE 2024, Clariant is launching its new AddWorks PPA product range for customers in the polyolefin film extrusion market.

The new AddWorks PPA polymer additive range features smooth and stable processability, while also ensuring the highest possible optical film qualities (haze, gloss, clarity) by eliminating sharkskin and dye build-up effects. The film tensile, mechanical, and sealing properties are unaffected by the new compositions and the solutions exhibit high thermal stability and low or no migration, as well as low let down ratios (LDRs) ensuring competitive cost-in-use.

“Our teams have developed these solutions to be fully compliant with tightening PFAS regulations, while also combining high production line efficiency and film qualities,” commented Zhigang. 

Clariant has developed the AddWorks PPA product line in response to increased concerns about the persistence of PFAS in the environment and the implications for human health. These new products contain no inorganic content nor silicone components and preserve high performance.

Clariant plans to launch the AddWorks PPA in Spring 2024 in all regions.
