As part of a series of talks to show the connection between Hull, the City of Culture 2017, and chemistry, the local section of the Royal Society of Chemistry has organized a talk by Mr. John Latus and Mr Sean Rouse from Croda.
Slip additives offer a cost-effective solution to the problem of friction in polymers. Requiring only very low addition levels, typically 1000 ppm, slip additives reduce friction and allow ease of polymer handling and processing. The use of slip additives in plastics is a practical requirement for both the manufacturer and end-product consumer. High friction can result in difficulties with winding of film rolls, bag production and packaging operations.
The event is open to the general public.
