Technical Details & Test Data

Processing
  • The addition to the polyester melt is best done by compounding on twin screw extrusion machines. Only this will lead to the desired optimum dispersion of the stabilizer in the compound. Dry blending of BRUGGOLEN® P252 along with polyester granules will not lead to an optimum dispersion of the additive in the melt during injection molding.
  • However, to support the dispersion of BRUGGOLEN® P252 when making a dry-blend, it is recommended that our BRUGGOLEN® P60 as adhesive agent is used.
