OnCap CTR Performance Additive improves energy efficiency and throughput, effectively increasing manufacturing capacity in injection molding as well as continuous and intermittent extrusion. For injection molding applications, PolyOne has documented 30 percent or more reduction in cycle time when using this additive.
In terms of quality enhancements, OnCap CTR also improves the consistency, dimensional stability, and surface appearance of molded parts. In one case, a beta tester was able to reduce scrap rate by more than 50 percent. Such dramatic product quality improvements may allow processors to enter previously unattainable markets.
Now available globally, OnCap CTR Performance Additive can be supplied as an additive concentrate or as part of a Smartbatch additive in combination with a color concentrate.
