What is said to be a unique, non-silicone release agent for use in PE release tapes and other blown film products is said to overcome limitations of typical silicone products. Developed by Techmer PM, Clinton, Tenn., Techsperse PM 1369E1 is a proprietary FDA-grade additive in an LDPE carrier. The product reportedly makes films easier to release than with silicones and eliminates hazing in clear films. Thus, this release agent is said to be well suited to pouches and packages containing foods, pharmaceuticals, or medical instruments. Typical loading is 5%. Techmer also offers formulations for other resin systems on a custom basis.
