Hyperform® HPN nucleating agents for polyethylene (PE) create unique lamellar orientations that expand the performance window of HDPE and LLDPE. Developing applications include packaging films with improved barrier as well as unique tear and toughness properties; caps & closures with consistent shrinkage across all pigments; and injection molded parts with faster cycle times, and reduced warpage, along with stiffness and thermal properties that approach impact copolymer polypropylene.
ClearShield® UV absorber for PET bottles and containers effectively protects UV-sensitive packed contents from degradation while maintaining the transparency of PET.
A homogeneous, non-settling liquid polymer designed specifically for PET applications, ClearShield allows manufacturers to quickly and easily mold containers that keep UV-sensitive products safe.
Milliguard™ UVX improves UV performance and VDA 278 compliance for highly demanding PU and TPU applications, including elastomers, coatings and stay-white PU foam parts.
The additive is a liquid, reactive, UV absorber with a broad absorbance spectrum designed to provide a high level of UV protection over an extended exposure time. It offers the unique combination of complete non-extraction, minimal VOC generation and premium, full-spectrum UV absorption.
ClearTint® CUV is a transparent UV absorber specifically designed for use in polyolefins. This additive can be used to inhibit UV light transmission in injection molded, thermoformed and blow molded parts. The technical and physical benefits of clarified PP can be exploited without sacrificing product aesthetics.
Milliguard™ AOX antioxidant for polyurethane is a reactive, polymeric carbon-centered radical scavenger that protects polyurethane from oxidation degradation. It is effective at low levels to prevent scorch and in polyol manufacturing to improve stability. It reacts into the system, resulting in significantly lower emissions. Europur recently recognized its performance by presenting Milliguard AOX with the 2016 Innovation Award as part of the group’s European Flexible PU Foam Awards 2016.
Zelec® electroconductive powders (ECP) provide cost-effective static dissipative performance in coatings and plastics to help compounders, molders and film extruders to meet evolving electrostatic discharge (ESD) standards. Zelec ECPs are inorganic, conductive powders that have been developed for applications where the dissipation of static charge in transparent, translucent, and opaque coatings and plastics is important.
ClearTint® colorants offer the clearest and brightest colors for UltraClear polypropylene. ClearTint can be used as light tint to mask residual haze or for deep, rich shades. ClearTint colorants enhance aesthetics while maintaining the glass clarity look of Millad® NX™ 8000 clarified polypropylene.
Reactint® polymeric colorants for polyurethane are a unique technology for coloring PU, allowing the color to react into the PU polymer matrix. These colorants provide the highest quality, homogenously colored PU foams that meet the latest marketing deep-color trends with reduced inventory and less cost. Reactint colorants allow foamers to use color for market differentiation and branding purposes, without affecting the physical properties of the foam.
AlphaSan® antimicrobial uses the power of silver to protect against bacteria, fungi and other microbes that cause malodors, discoloration, corrosion and other problems on untreated surfaces.
