Plastic additives & pigments

Through the use of additives and pigments during processing, plastics achieve their technical and optical properties. Requirements such as durability, appearance, feel, flammability, etc. are largely determined by additives and pigments. Through a professional selection of the correct additives, each plastic component can be given its individual performance.

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.

Baerostab® Epoxidized vegetable oils

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

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.

Cinquasia® Organic pigment powder

Organic pigments with excellent light fastness and high chemical and solvent resistance.

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.

Euvinyl® Pigments in PVC carrier

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

Factice

Is a vulcanized saturated oil, used as a processing aid and property modifier in Rubber. It is used as a softer of rubber. It prevents compounds from Tackiness and shrinkage.It improves processability and shortens mixing time. Improves ozone resistance and electric insulation, so prolongs the product lifetime.

Firemist® Borosilicate-based pigments

Multicolor effect pigments make the color appear in different shades from different angles.

Glacier Mica-based interference pigments

Titanium-coated synthetic mica for producing white sparkling effects with bluish frost character.

Heliogen® Organic pigment powder

Organic pigments with excellent light fastness and high chemical and solvent resistance.

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.

Irgaguard® Antimicrobials

Inhibited by chemical reactions the growth of microorganisms on the surface, can be used for most common plastics.

Irgalite® Organic pigment powder

Organic pigments with excellent light fastness and high chemical and solvent resistance.

Irganox® Antioxidants


Irgazin® Organic pigment powder

Organic pigments with excellent light fastness and high chemical and solvent resistance.

Lumina® Mica-based interference pigments

Titanium-coated synthetic mica for producing white sparkling effects with bluish frost character.

MagnaPearl® Pearlescence pigments

Pearlescence pigments based on oxide-coated natural mica. Different particle sizes and oxide layer thicknesses give the pigments the different semi-transparent sparkling effects in different metallic and colored shades.

Melapur® Melamin based flame retardants

Paliotol® Organic pigment powder

Organic pigments with excellent light fastness and high chemical and solvent resistance.

RADGLO® Luminescent pigments

Fluorescence pigments convert the blue and near UV range of daylight into light of longer wavelength by fluorescence and thus achieve a significant increase in contrast, especially in cloudy weather and at twilight. Luminescent pigments are used in paints, dispersions and plastics.

RickoStab Multi-component additive packages

The combination of several additives, e.g. primary and secondary antioxidants, HALS and UV absorbers facilitate dosage during processing.

Sanitized® Antimicrobial polymer additives
