Before incorporating Exolit OP 1230, it is important to predry the polymer as usual. If possible, the resulting moisture content should be below 0.1 % (by wt.) for high temperature polyamides, 0.05 % (by wt.) for PBT and 0.005% for PET. Predrying of Exolit OP 1230 is not necessary. However, predrying (e. g. 4h at 120 °C) is recommended, if even very low moisture contents must be avoided.
Wear and corrosion protected materials are recommended for compounding and injection-molding of Exolit OP 1230 in reinforced polyesters, high temperature polyamides, or aromatic polyamides.
The mixing and processing methods customary in powder processing of polymers can be used with Exolit OP 1230.
The VDI Guideline 2263 “Prevention of dust fires and dust explosions” or the relevant national regulations must be observed. The optimum conditions for incorporating should be determined in each individual case. Care must be taken to ensure homogeneous dispersion of all components. The temperature of the polymer melt should not exceed 330 °C.
