Polymer additives

When making highly-filled polymer compounds, dispersion of the fillers is a challenge. In many cases standard processing aids do not perform well enough to get a proper dispersion. In those situations, Armowax® W-440 brings the perfect solution.

Optimal bonding within sulfur cured, steel cord reinforced rubber composites can now be achieved with Perkabond® 55-DINP, our superior adhesion promoter.

With our silicone masterbatches, thermoplastic plastic compounds greatly benefit from improved scratch and mar resistance without fogging or emissions, improved lubricity, enhanced abrasion resistance and efficient mold release.

 

As high-performance additives, our PMMA microspheres, spherical silicone and silicone elastomer micro powders are used in paints and coatings, leather coatings, compounds, films, plastics, rubber and masterbatches. There they are used to improve mechanical (e.g. anti-blocking, improved flow behavior) and optical properties (e.g. matting, luminance, light scattering) as well as for the targeted control of structure and haptics / soft feel.
