5 formulates and compounds a range of specialty additive concentrates
for the thermoplastics industry. Our concentrates are used as process
aids or performance enhancers in automotive sound dampers, sealers,
gaskets, food & personal care packaging, housewares, toys, films, and
wire & cable insulation.
Our extrusion compounding
operations have been designed with our target customers in mind. Small
lot production, quick turnaround time, and excellent process control are
just a few of the demanding criteria used to design our production
lines. Both single and twin screw extrusion equipment is used.
A wide variety of
auxiliary equipment is available to meet even the most demanding
extrusion applications. Our processing equipment is the finest
available and equipped with state of the art process controls.
5 offers both Chemical and Physical Blowing agents including CellFoam
–H, our novel, water based blowing agent.
Information: News Release,
addition to blowing agents, Polymer 5 also manufactures masterbatch
compounds. Our superior “vehicles” permit us to integrate greater
functionality within an additive masterbatch while increasing
concentrations and lowering compound costs. Our masterbatches provide
an effective means of delivering difficult to handle materials to our
customers in a convenient, safe and economic form.
