What are polymer additives and the applications?

Release Time: 2023-01-16 Collection | Return

Polymer additives can broadly be classified as polymer stabilizers or functional agents. Polymer stabilizers are essential to practical use, since they maintain the inherent properties, color, and other characteristics of plastics by preventing the oxidative degradation caused by high temperature during processing, and ultraviolet exposure during use. Functional additives, on the other hand, are added to further improvement the mechanical strength of plastics or impart new properties, such as flexibility or flame retardancy, thereby expanding the range of application of plastics and enhancing their commercial value.

Types of polymer stabilizers and their main applications are as follows.


Functionalizing Agents


4-Acryloyloxybenzophenone (Cas No.: 22535-49-5) is white to off-white or Slightly yellow solid. Store in cool and dry place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Its suitable application: ethyl acetate, Acrylate formulations.
