Polymers, including polyolefins, are subject to degradation in every stage of their lives, for instance, during the production, storage and transformation by the end-user. Various factors are responsible for this degradation: heat, light, oxygen and a combination of these three.
The stability of the polymers can be achieved in two different ways: A) by modifying the polymer, for example by copolymerising it, B) by additivating it with stabilizer; to this effect, our company had developed antioxidant Masterbatches.
The effects of degradation can be the following:
-DISCOLORATION (CHALKING), YELLOWING IN COLOURLESS PRODUCTS
-VARIATION IN THE FLOW INDEX
-LOSS OF TRANSPARENCY
-LOSS OF SUPERFICIAL GLOSS
-LOSS OF PHYSICAL-MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
-INTERRUPT THE DEGRADATION OF THE POLYMER
-PREVENT THE THERMAL DEGRADATION AND OXYDATION
These are some of our products:
