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.

ARGUBLOCK

Create a micro-rough surface on e.g. films and thus a paper-thin air layer as a separation layer when putting the films each other. This reduce the adhesion of a materials to itself or other materials and improve slippage.

ARGUBOPP

Different single and combination batches from e.g. additives or fillers provide BOPP films with the desired properties or open up new technological possibilities for applications with promising potentials.

ARGUCLEAN

Compounds for cleaning the extruder and tools when material and colour are changed as well as for machine shutdown.

ARGUCOLOR

Masterbaches for the coloring of a wide range of plastics products. We offer a highest quality coloring concentrates palette of basic colors, as well as: fluorescent, transparent and special effects colors. We propose individual solutions and colormatching on customer's request to the finished parts or granule samples and against a RAL, Pantone, HKS, Munsell, or NCS color pattern.

ARGUCOM

The combination of various group of additives in a batch increases profitability. Optionally, you can also combine colours with different additives. Customized formulation are possible.

ARGUFILL

Fillers define the mechanical properties to improve the material. They allow to reduce the costs of production of plastic products, without lowering the quality of the product, and in some cases even raising its quality.

ARGUFLAME

Halogenated or halogen-free combinations of additives reduce or prevent the flammability or combustion of plastics by intervening either physically or chemically in the combustion mechanism. They comply both with European and US-American fire standards.

ARGUFOG

Antifogging agents prevent the formation of water drips on the surface of packaging and agricultural films during condensation. The surface remains largely transparent as the condensing water creates a coherent film.

ARGUMELT

Improve the extrusion properties of the polymer melt (extrusion aid, rheology improver) and reduce the deposits on the extruder surface.

ARGUNUC

Are used to accelerate the crystallization of plastics for more transparency and stiffness, to reduce the cycle time and create uniform fine foam structures.

ARGUSLIP

Internal slip agents improve rheology of the melt. External slip agents increase the smoothness and the surface gloss of the end product, reduce friction and improve the flow properties of the melt.

ARGUTEC

Hightech masterbaches like fiber-finishing agents, bio-degradable and compostable, scents and flavors, electrets, melt modifiers, hydrolysis protection, hydrophilic, hydrophobics and laser sensitizers.

ARGUTHERM

Slow down the oxidative degradation of polymers by improving thermal stability. Long-term heat and processing stabilizers (or combination of these) protect plastics during processing and in the final application.

ARGUVIN

Light stabilizers from sterically hindered amines or UV absorbers for various applications and polymer types to prevent ageing, yellowing and embrittlement and to protect characteristic performance and material property.

Chimassorb® HALS (sterically hindered amines)

HALS additives act as radical scavengers and thus make a significant contribution as light stabilizers alone and together with UV absorbers.

Chimassorb® UV absorbers

UV absorbers absorb the harmful UV radiation of the wavelength 290-400 nm and convert this light energy into harmless heat.

Controzon Antiozonant waxes

Controzon waxes form a flexible wax film on the surfaces of the vulcanizates and protect them from crack formation caused by ozone attack under static conditions. Additionally, Controzon waxes act as carriers for chemical ozone protection agents or antioxidants and improve their effectiveness. The addition of about 2 phr prevents the ozone attack known as the “frosting effect”.

Deolink® Activators for fillers (Silanes)

Also called Silicon Hydride, any of a series of covalently bonded compounds containing only the elements silicon and hydrogen. They are used in a variety of Rubber & Coatings applications to improve physical and performance properties like improved abrasion, adhesion, and cross-link density without effecting compression set.

Deostab® Vulcanization stabilizers

Vulcanization is a chemical process used to harden rubber. Vulcanization traditionally referred to the treatment of natural rubber with sulfur. Vulcanization stabilizers are used to improve the thermal stability of the rubber. They compensate the negative effect of CaO on the state of cure and improves the compression set without influencing the activity of the desiccant (CaO).

Deovulc® Activators

Vulcanization Activators. are important rubber processing additives that activate sulfur cure and improve the efficiency of sulfur-based cure systems. The most common activator is zinc fatty acid ester which is often formed in-situ by reaction of fatty acid with zinc oxide.

Deovulc® vulcanization retarder

They are pre-vulcanization inhibitors. In order to avoid premature vulcanization during processing, retarders are often added to the curing system. These compounds increase the induction time by reacting with the active accelerator fragment, which slows down or temporarily prevents the formation of zinc salt.

Irgaclear® Clarifier nucleating agents

Characterized in particular in the application in polypropylene, by the transparency of the polymer is significantly increased.

Irgafos® Phosphite process stabilizers

Irgafos additives are secondary antioxidants that act as peroxy radical scavengers during plastics processing.

Irganox® Antioxidants


Melapur® Melamin based flame retardants

Halogen-free, melamine-based flame retardants, which are predominantly used in polyamide or TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane granules).

RC Titanium dioxide

Universally applicable titanium dioxide, especially for high-quality water- and solvent-based coating systems, with uniform particle size distribution, high whiteness and high opacity.

Tinopal® Optical brighteners

Optical brighteners.

Tinuvin® UV absorbers

UV absorbers absorb the harmful UV radiation of the wavelength 290-400 nm and convert this light energy into harmless heat.
