How it Works

Fluids flowing through process equipment inherently encounter friction forces caused by the boundary layer drag which forms on all of the mechanical surfaces in which the flowing fluid contacts. The Boundary Breaker TM additive is an engineered structural particle that helps to convert the static friction to kinetic friction thereby reducing energy required for the fluid to flow through the process equipment and increasing productivity. These specialized patented particles interact directly with the boundary layer to help your component dispersion. Boundary BreakerTM acts like millions of rolling and tumbling mixing blades to produce nano dispersion of conglomerate additives thereby helping to reduce formula cost.

Boundary Breaker TM is an inert structural particle that is chemically and thermally stable which is in its raw form a powder ranging from nano to micron and sizes whose color ranges from white to off-white.
Note: Boundary Breaker TM limitations in thermoplastics
