BTC Europe GmbH, a BASF group company, is broadening its product range for the plastics industry with a new additive. accelothene®, developed by the Swiss company swissGEL AG, is predominantly used in the polyolefin processing industry for injection moulding, extrusion and blow moulding.

“BTC distributes a unique and diverse portfolio of plastic additives, pigments and processing aids. Thanks to our new collaboration with the innovative company swissGEL, we can now offer our customers an additional high-quality product for the efficient manufacture of polyolefins,” says Dr Alfred Oertli, Business Manager Plastics Industry at BTC Europe GmbH.

accelothene enhances the injection moulding process, allowing the processing temperature to be reduced. This enables manufacturers of plastic goods to significantly cut the cooling time and to shorten the total cycle time by up to 25%. This in turn leads to energy savings and at the same time increased production capacity.

Furthermore, the lower processing temperature reduces internal stress, resulting in improved end-use properties such as impact resistance.

“swissGEL is proud to collaborate with BTC in bringing accelothene to the European markets. Together, we stand for a new, innovative way of thinking plastics,” says Dr Adrian Krahn, Chairman of swissGEL AG.
