3M™ Dynamar™ Polymer Processing Additive FX 5912 is a free-flowing fluorothermoplastic processing aid that is designed for use at very low levels to improve the processing of thermoplastics. It is designed for wire and cable applications. At designated low use levels, it will not alter or detract from the physical properties associated with high strength plastics.

3M™ Dynamar™ Polymer Processing Additive FX 5912 is designed for wire and cable applications. It is particularly useful at very low levels (typically 200-1000 ppm) to reduce extrusion pressure, improve throughput and reduce extruder die build-up. As a polymer processing additive (PPA), it reduces or eliminates melt fracture and can reduce extruder torque. Because of its proven ability in reducing die build-up and its continuous "cleaning" function, equipment maintenance may be minimized.
