A new additive reportedly improves the release of TPO parts without affecting paintability or level of surface gloss. MoldWiz INT-33CRS from Axel Plastics Research Laboratories, Woodside, N.Y., is available as a powder or 100%-active pellet. It has been evaluated in molding auto interior and exterior trim panels from 40% talc-filled TPO. At a 0.3% use level, no change in matte finish was observed, according to Axel.
