ENHANCE for Metallics

ENHANCE for Metallics

Metallics and PE can be tricky, dry-blend pigments are an option but this is typically known to reduce material strength.

After speaking to Carla Martins, Assistant Professor at University of Minho, Director of the Polymer Engineering Master Course, who often pushes the boundary on different rotational moulding theories, we decided to test this theory when using ENHANCE.

Our water-based surface enhancer, ENHANCE, has proven over the years to significantly reduce surface pin-holing in PE materials, but we have never really had tried this with Metallics.

Carla produced some PE parts featuring bronze metallic pigments, with and without ENHANCE and the results clearly speak for themselves.

Observations on the two boxes produced clearly show an improvement in surface quality with surface porosity i.e. pin-holes substantially reduced.
