Polymer additives for moisture control serve various functions in controlling the behavior and performance of polymers when they are exposed to moisture. These additives can help to maintain the properties of the polymer or plastic, such as its mechanical strength, color stability, and dimensional integrity, among other aspects.
These special chemical agents are integrated into polymer composites to manage their behavior when exposed to water or humid conditions. They serve a myriad of functions – from absorbing excess moisture and scavenging water to maintaining dimensional stability and even extending product lifespan.
Moisture-control additives are not just an optional add-on but essential for:
Some categories of polymer additives are:
