Atmer™ 103

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Croda
Atmer™ 103 is sorbitan ester of vegetable origin as well as non-vegetable origin (available only in the US). Acts as an anti-fogging agent. It can be dispersed evenly through the polymer in the melt phase. It migrates to the surface of the polymer where it helps to lower the surface tension and subsequently reduces water droplets allowed to condense on the plastic. The water droplets are then able to spread into a continuous, uniform layer on the fabricated film. It provides improved light transmission, better growth rates for crops, reduced plant and crop spoilage, reduced water dripping. It can be incorporated into resin as supplied or via masterbatch / pre-blend. Experience has shown that simple manual mixing prior to processing will normally give an acceptable dispersion though, mechanical means are preferred. Suitable for LDPE, LLDPE, PVC. Typical addition levels are 1-5%. Used in agricultural films.
