Selecting Amide Slip Concentrates for Polyethylene Film Applications - Storage and Shelf Life

Storage and Shelf Life

As fatty acid derivatives, both oleamide and erucamide slip agents are susceptible to oxidation reactions that can lead to color and odor formation. Under proper storage conditions, Colortech 10002-12 Oleamide Slip and 10003-12 Erucamide Slip concentrates will remain stable for up to one year following manufacture. To maintain optimum product characteristics, these concentrates should be stored in closed containers in a cool, dry environment. Good inventory management practices can help to minimize problems with out-of- date materials.
