Flow Improver

The flow improver bFI – a multiplier for your products & processing operations

Our flow improver was developed to help optimize conventional thermoplastics and their processing. The bFI offers three benefits at once: The additive is a flow improver, energy saver and pathfinder. Architecturally targeted polymer design makes this possible. The flow improver bFI will ensure a technological leap forward for you by making plastics more filigree and processable with less energy input. The mechanical properties remain unchanged.

Reduce melt viscosity – increase productivity

The flow improver bFI was developed to reduce the melt viscosity of PMMA. However, it can also be used in other polymers or casting resin mixtures and achieves excellent results. bFI is available as powder or granules – contact us for application questions about the flow improver. In addition to the high compatibility and miscibility, the positive effects on the flow behavior are already evident at dosages of 5 – 10%. You do not have to integrate this part of the additive additionally. You replace part of your base polymer and, for example in PMMA, retain the transparency and recyclability of the polymethyl methacrylate, while the MFI is significantly improved. Learn more or test it directly yourself.

Flow improvement through bFI – visibly moving more

A picture is worth a thousand words. As old as this sentence is, its truth content is still great today. The flow spiral on the left in the adjacent picture was produced with a conventional polymer blend. On the right, the significant influence of the bFI flow improver is clearly visible.
