Case Study: Polypropylene

Customer Opportunity: Customer wanted to increase production without increased capital costs.

Process: Injection molded PP plant container on a Magna 310 ton press / 1 cavity.

Previous Performance: 
Cycle Time: 5 seconds

Performance with Vitrolite® : 
Cycle Time: 4.5 seconds
Improved color dispersion

Improvement: With 0.5% of Vitrolite cycle time was reduced by 10% although the press was limited in recovery. Energy savings were realized with an average 33°F reduction in process temperatures. Improved dispersion was evident in the finished product.
