Material Handling

Aegis® H55ZP homopolymer is supplied in sealed containers and drying prior to processing is not required. However, high moisture is the primary cause of processing problems. If drying becomes necessary, a dehumidifying or desiccant dryer operating at 80°C (176°F) is recommended. Drying time is dependent on moisture level.
