Polymer Processing Aids

Solef® 11010 PVDF

Solef® 11010 PVDF is a typical thermoplastic material used as an additive in order to offer unique benefits to polymer resins, such as the elimination of melt fracture and the reduction of die buildup.

Due to its incompatibility with the majority of polymers and their fast movement in the molten flow during extrusion, Solef® 11010 PVDF builds a thin coated layer on the metal surface of the die leading to a direct improvement of the processability of the extruded polymers (stabilization of flow instabilities).

Key features

  • Elimination of melt fracture (shark-skin effect)
  • Reduction of die build-up
  • Improvement of the surface finish with high gloss levels
  • Faster production start-up
  • Pressure reduction
  • Higher output at constant die pressure and temperature
  • Lower energy consumption

Normally a final concentration of only 200 to 1000 ppm Solef® 11010 PVDF is sufficient to achieve the mentioned benefits.


Solef® 11010 PVDF has been developed particularly to improve extrusion, blow molding, and rotomolding of low density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, and linear low density polyethylene as a processing aid. It is available in a free flowing powder form, is easy to handle and to dose accurately in masterbatch and/or polymer resins.

It is ideal for the production of blown and cast film mainly used for:

  • Industrial packaging film
  • Agricultural film
  • (Co-extruded) food packaging film
  • BOPP film
