Acid Scavengers

Lohtragon® high performance metal salts, used as acid scavengers in polymers, limit or eliminate the acid-induced polymer chain degradation. more

Flame Retardants

The fire resistance of polymers and related plastic materials is more and more a crucial factor within the extensive profile of more

Antistatic additives

Surfaces of polymer compounds and plastics that carry an electrical charge can significantly influence their frictionless application, more

Antioxidants / Light Stabilizers

For the durability of a plastic in its life cycle, the objective is to maintain the initial properties as long as possible. more

Nucleating and clarifying agents

Nucleating agents are additives used to improve the optical properties of semi-crystalline polymers such as polypropylene. more

Blowing Agents

Plastic foams are widely used because of weight reduction and cost efficiency. more

Crosslinking Agents

Polymer products like polyethylene with linear polymer chain structures typically show thermoplastic behavior. more

Moisture control

Plastic products based on PE, PET and other polymer types might need a defined water content level. more
