  • Optimize Your Polymer Performance with Moisture Control Additives

    Despite their versatility, polymers often have limitations when it comes to moisture absorption and sensitivity.

    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.

    What Are Polymer Additives for Moisture Control?

    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.

    Why You Need Moisture-Control Additives

    Moisture-control additives are not just an optional add-on but essential for:

    • Mechanical Property Enhancement
    • Dimensional Stability
    • Aesthetic and Functional Performance
    • Enhanced Durability

    Types of Polymer Additives for Moisture Control

    Some categories of polymer additives are:

    • Moisture Absorbers
    • Moisture Scavengers
    • Hydrophobic Agents
    • Controlled Release Agents
    • Humectants
    • Desiccants
