Plastic processing industry
Stabilizers, light stabilizers and colorants are indispensable components in the manufacture of plastic articles. It is only through their use that the plastic part can be adapted and modified accordingly. Additives increase the service life of the plastic, achieve the desired mechanical properties of the component and maintain these for the desired period of time. By adding colorants, the plastic is optically changed and an individual color design is possible.
Additives for plastic compounds, masterbatches & film production
The careful selection of additives, such as antioxidants and light stabilizers, can extend the life of plastics, rubber articles or adhesives. Among other things, additives prevent the chemical and physical degradation of polymers during the manufacturing process and during their use, which is caused by oxygen, heat, light or shear forces.
Antimicrobial finishing of plastics
Antimicrobial agents are used in numerous plastic applications. We regularly encounter corresponding products in our everyday lives, such as in applications for sanitary ware, kitchens, textiles, floor coverings and mattresses. These active ingredients inhibit or prevent the spread of mold, bacteria or algae. For this reason, antimicrobial-treated plastics perform not only to a higher standard of hygiene, but also to health-related requirements.
Antistatic finishing of plastics
Our permanent antistatic agents reduce or prevent the electrical charging of plastic surfaces. Their mode of action is based on making surfaces slightly electrically conductive. Antistatic plastics are used, for example, in packaging for high-quality electrical components or industrial packaging such as plastic containers.
Coloring of plastic compounds & masterbatches
Colorants and their preparations are used in plastics for a wide variety of applications. Depending on the requirements and the polymer used, Bodo Möller Chemie with its technically high-quality product portfolio can offer solutions for a large number of color design possibilities and achieves great acceptance with its colorants.
Customer-specific additive packages & masterbatches
Additive packages contain a combination of different stabilizers and are tailored to the respective customer-specific requirements. They simplify dosing during compounding and, thanks to their professional composition, meet the requirements profile of the plastic during use.
Fillers for plastics
Fillers are an essential component of the formulation in many plastic compounds. The properties of the plastic can be positively influenced by a professional selection of the functional filler and the best type for the respective application.
Flame retardant plastics
Flame retardant plastics are indispensable in many areas. By adding appropriate flame retardants to plastics, the required fire protection classes can be achieved and thus meet the necessary safety criteria.
