Additives

Giving wings to plastics and coatings

Additives_portalpage
The Additives business is a major supplier of flame retardants, polymer additives and waxes for functional effects in plastics, coatings, inks and other special applications.

Additive’s patented non-halogenated flame retardants provide environmentally more compatible protection for engineering thermoplastics, such as polyamides and polyesters. The range  offers a sustainable alternative over brominated flame retardants to support Original Equipment Manufacturer’s (OEM’s) claim on their environmentally friendly products. Main applications include smart phones, tablets, connectors and circuit breakers as well as protective coatings for the construction industry. 

The Polymer Additives segment provides innovative solutions for the agriculture, automotive and transportation, electrical and electronics, industrial building and construction, packaging, textile and fibers markets. The products range from antioxidants, processing and light stabilizers, as well as acid scavengers, which enable protection of plastics and coatings during manufacturing, and antistatics which confer antistatic effects.

Clariant’s Specialty Waxes and Performance Polymers are mainly used as process- and surface additives for plastic, coating, ink, adhesive and polish applications, but are also increasingly directly used as hot melt adhesives in the area of technical textiles, carpets and for artificial turf.
