Performance enhancing additives

 

Anti-static

An anti-static agent is a additive used for the treatment of materials in order to reduce or eliminate the build-up of static electricity.

 

Flame retardant

A flame retardant is an additive which will enable the end product to inhibit or resist flammability.

 

UV / Light stabilizer

A UV or light stabilizer is a material used to resist weathering thereby reducing the ageing effects such as yellowing, loss of light transmission, loss of physical properties and loss of gloss.

 

Processing Aid

Processing aid is a fluorelastomer that improves the flow between polymer and the extruder die, and thereby prevents melt fracture and die build-up inside the extruder.

 

Anti-fog

Anti – fog is an additive which prevents the formation of visible condensation.

 

Anti-oxidants

Anti-oxidants help to combat the effects of oxidation namely loss of strength and impact resistance.

 

Anti-block

Anti – block is an additive which reduces the adhesion between different layers of film.
