INNOVATION POLYMER ADDITIVES

THE ULTIMATE IN

HIGH SLIP AND STABILITY How can Croda’s newest innovation – IncroslipTM SL – deliver long lasting slip performance and superior stability in the most challenging conditions

C

roda Polymer Additives is a leading producer of organic slip and anti-block additives used to modify and enhance the properties of plastics and rubbers. Croda’s additives are designed to impart a range of effects so manufacturers can tailor both polymer processing and performance as well as improve the look of end products. Produced from natural oils and fats, Croda’s product ranges are used to solve many slip, blocking, scratch, torque and mold release problems faced by the polymer industry. The newest addition to Croda’s Polymer Additives portfolio of high performance slip additives is Incroslip SL. This product provides both high slip performance and long-term oxidative stability to protect against undesired changes in taste, odour

and colour in challenging or consumersensitive plastics applications, such as packaging films or automotive parts.

Key Benefits Incroslip SL demonstrates a number of benefits in many different applications areas, including: • High and long lasting slip 
 • Low application and release torque 
 • Excellent organoleptics 
 • High oxidative stability 
 • Scratch and scuff protection 
 • Low visible bloom 
 • Enhanced mold release properties 



Enhanced mold release properties

Where standard grade erucamides can lose slip performance after around four weeks of UV exposure, Incroslip SL maintains its slip performance for much longer. This means packaging film can be stored for longer without the risk of losing slip performance.
