AddWorks® solutions

BOOSTING YOU UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Innovative polymer additives solutions

FOR YOUR SUCCESS

AddWorks is the trade name of Clariant polymer additives solutions designed to address specific needs for various segments of the plastics and coatings industry. Each AddWorks solution is an optimized combination of additives produced in a physical form that makes it readily usable, convenient, and cost-effective to incorporate smoothly into a broad array of production processes.

The essence of performance

ADDWORKS IS ALL ABOUT MAKING IT SIMPLE
FOR OUR CUSTOMERS

As our AddWorks solutions are composed mainly from active additives and are not diluted in a polymer carrier, the incorporation of just a minor amount of AddWorks provides not only a major impact on the polymer performance, but also makes life simpler and more productive for our customers. Every single pill, granule or pellet contains the essence of our product expertise, market knowledge, technical know-how, and production capabilities – to boost up your success!

Solutions

TAILOR-MADE FOR MANY NEEDS

AddWorks solutions are designed and optimized for the needs of particular segments and applications within those segments:
Example Agricultural solution – prolonging greenhouse film life time with UV protection:
  • AddWorks AGC 104 provides long-term light protection to agricultural greenhouse films, stable even in the presence of high content of agrochemicals. Thereby extending the life time of greenhouse films, it enables farmers to reduce costs, waste, time, and resources.

Example Automotive solution – protecting interior car parts from heat and light:
  • Addworks ATR 945 provides a highly compatible and efficient light protection for automotive interior parts made out of Polypropylene. Its low blooming, migration, and VOC emission and its low dosage versus best alternatives on the market make it a cost efficient solution, compliant with the challenging requirements of car manufacturers on VOCs.

AddWorks LXR – particular effects across segments and applications:
  • The AddWorks LXR range provides particular effects and answers to needs that are common across segments and applications. Clariant offers LXR solutions that, for instance, protect against UV light and oxidation, modify surfaces effects or improve processing.

Ready-to-use, cost effective

AND IN CONVENIENT PHYSICAL FORMS

The specific effects obtained from the additive formulation are only one part of the benefits provided by AddWorks. Their individual physical form is designed for an easy incorporation and uniform dosing into plastics, not requiring overdosing to achieve the desired performance. Our production capabilities allow us to select the most appropriate form-giving technology from a broad range of possibilities: fine powder, liquid, pills, micro-beads, pellets, granules, micro-pellets, etc. We optimized the form to your need!
Our AddWorks solutions offer you the opportunity to make your process leaner and more cost-effective compared to the dosing of multiple separate components. As a reliable, tested, and ready-to-use solution, AddWorks allows you to fully focus your workforce and assets on your business and make a tangible difference in your market.

It all adds up – the benefits of

USING ADDWORKS

Waste reduction

Waste reduction
AddWorks pellets are fully incorporated into the polymer matrix, therefore reducing not only the amount of chemical waste but also the related cost for waste treatment.

Improved productivity

Improved productivity
The easiness to incorporate AddWorks pellets into polymers contributes to improving extrusion throughput compared to low density powder additives.

Risk reduction

Risk reduction
The risks and costs for quality complaints due to potential formulation mistakes, cross-contaminations, or fluctuations of composition are significantly reduced.

Health and safety

Health and safety
AddWorks pelletized solutions reduce the risks for health issues related to the inhalation of powders and the risks for dust explosion.

Leaner production processes

Leaner production processes
Using AddWorks granules reduces the number of machine stops, the time for cleaning and for re-starting production, and the amount of off-spec material.

 

AddWorks®

WHAT IT CAN DO FOR YOU

We create added value by saving time and effort for your team, by removing unnecessary costs and risks in your plants, by reducing the complexity all along your production process. Here are some concrete examples on how you can benefit from AddWorks:

Less chemical waste
The losses of additive powders through de-dusting systems is rarely below 2–3%, but can even go over 10%. AddWorks pellets are fully incorporated into the polymer matrix, therefore reducing not only the amount of chemical waste but also the related cost for waste treatment.

Improved extrusion throughput
The easiness to incorporate AddWorks pellets into polymers contributes to improving extrusion throughput compared to low density powder additives. When it concerns machine productivity, time is real money!

Leaner production process
Using AddWorks granules reduces the number of machine stops, the time for cleaning and for re-starting production, and the amount of off-spec material. Compared to additive powders, AddWorks granules improves process productivity.

Reduced risks and costs
The use of formulated AddWorks granules reduces the manipulation of plastic additives in the plant. The related risks and costs for quality complaints due to potential formulation mistakes, cross-contaminations, or fluctuations of composition are significantly reduced.

Safer use
AddWorks pelletized solutions reduce the risks for health issues related to the inhalation of powders and the risks for dust explosion.
