UV absorbers convert light into heat, retarding plastic degradation or protecting the product contents.
In Plastic Additives de México we have the following UV absorbers:
Kickers decrease the decomposition temperature of the foam agent.
In Plastic Additives de México we have the following kickers:
Antioxidants are additives used to protect the plastic from degradation. They retard the oxidation mechanism of polymers.
In Mexico Plastic Additives de México antioxidants we have the following:
Phenolics (AO 10, AO 76)
Chemical Blowing Agents
Foaming agents are additives that when they are injected or degrade, generates a gas foaming the polymer.
In Plastic Additives de México we have the following foaming agents:
Thermal stabilizers retard heat degradation of the resin during long periods of exposure at high temperatures.
In Plastic Additives de México we have a wide range of stabilizers, both industrial and FDA grades:
Organotin mercaptide (Methyl, Butyl, Octyl)
Organotin carboxylate, maleate with odor free
Non toxic mixed-metal (Ca/Zn, Mg/Zn)
Industrial mixed-metal (Ba/Zn, Ba/Cd, Ba/Cd/Zn)
Lubricants minimize the heat generated in the polymer by friction with the screw, reduce viscosity and prevent adhesion of the melt.
In Plastic Additives de México we have a wide range of lubricants:
Slip amide waxes and bis amides (Erucamide, Oleamide, Esteramide)
Paraffin waxes (125, 130, 135, 140, 145, 150, 160°F)
Polyethylene waxes (regular and high density)
Complex Lubricants for Rigid and Flexible PVC, polyolefins and engineering plastics
Metal stearates (Ca, Mg, Zn)
Lubrication one-packs extrusion, injection for PVC pipe
Monoleates and Glycerol Monostearate
Plasticizers increase flexibility, elongation and plastic processability.
In Plastic Additives de México we have the following plasticizers:
Epoxidized methyl ester
Impact modifiers absorb and deflect the vibrations in plastics when they are subjected to a shock or impact, preventing fractures.
In Plastic Additives de México we have the following types of impact modifiers:
MBS (methacrylate, butadiene, styrene)
Among the functional additives we handled in Plastic Additives de México are:
