Lubricants can, of course, positively influence the extrusion process; however, keep in mind chemical compatibility when selecting the proper lube. For example, primary amides, such as erucamide, can actually react in the extruder with Nylon adversely altering both the lubricant and the polymer chain whereas secondary amides, such as ethylene bis-stearamide, are more stable allowing the lube to do the job for which it was intended.
