Aegis® H100ZP Features & Benefits

Applications & Uses

Processing Guidelines

Material Handling

Aegis® H100ZP 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.

Technical Details & Test Data

Extrusion Guidelines

Melt Viscosity vs. Temperature

Melt Temperature: 220°C (428°F)
Melt Temperature Range: 232°C (450°F) to 271°C (520°F)
Two key factors affect the melt viscosity (stiffness or fluidity of the melt):

  • The molecular weight (Mw) of the resin: Higher Mw resins will have a higher melt viscosity than lower Mw resins.
  • Temperature of the melt for any given Mw resin: Higher process temperatures will provide a more fluid melt viscosity than lower process temperatures.

Typical Barrel Profile for Cast Films

Barrel: 230-260°C (446-500°F)

Process Melt Temperature: 260-270°C (500-518°F)

Typical Barrel Profile for Tubular (Blown) Films

Barrel: 246-254°C (474-490°F)
