Developing polymers with customized properties requires additives. Additives enrich plastics with heat, UV and process stabilizers, which protect them against external influences, such as high temperature stresses and weather effects, etc. By using suitable additives, such as impact modifiers, mechanical properties in non-reinforced and reinforced plastics can also be optimally adapted to suit requirements. Compatibilizers ensure improved morphology in plastic mixtures, nucleating agents, or anti-nucleating agents in terms of optical, mechanical and process-related properties.
In the case of conventional technical polymers, electrical or thermal conductivity properties can only be achieved using suitable additives and functional fillers.
Additives are literal lifesavers: As flame retardants, they extend escape times in the event of fire, for example, in electrical equipment or thermal insulation.
We will assist you not only in the preparation and customization of your plastics but also in the development of completely new additives.
