Antioxidants

antioxidant masterbatchPreserve the appearance and physical properties of polymers

Ampacet offers a complete portfolio of antioxidant solutions, each with a specific function in polymer stabilization:

  • Primary antioxidants are used to protect the finished product. This ensures better performance over the life of the finished good.
  • Secondary antioxidants are used as process stabilizers. They protect the polymer during processing, especially when the polymer undergoes multiple heat histories.
  • Primary/Secondary blends are often used to protect polymers during their entire lifecycle.
  • ThermProtect™ antioxidants, for use with recycled polyolefin and rPET, counteract the adverse effect of contaminants in recycled resins and resins with multiple heat histories. ThermProtect helps producers improve aesthetics and processing, as well as extend the life of polymers to promote the circular economy. Click here for more details.
