Additive solutions for plastics in industrial building and construction

MAKING PLASTICS DURABLE, SAFER AND MORE ATTRACTIVE

In the area of plastics used in industrial building and construction, Clariant has come up with a range of innovative solutions for polymer improvement. They make roofs and outdoor decks more weather-proof, window frames more aesthetic, and in some cases they can even make watching a soccer match a much more pleasurable experience. Thanks to the protection given by light stabilizers as well as a strong heat resistance resulting from the use of antioxidants or heat stabilizers, plastics for Industrial, Building and Construction using Clariant's AddWorks® IBC solutions are well protected against temperature, even high temperature during conversion or end use, or even against intense UV radiation, as well as other difficult weather conditions.   

Products

  • AddWorks® LXR™ 568 MP

    AddWorks LXR 568 MP is a highly efficient phosphorous based processing stabilizer solution, which reduces the thermo-oxidative degradation of polymers and the development of undesired color (yellowing). AddWorks LXR 568 MP shows enhanced hydrolytic stability, a high thermal stability and high solubility in polymeric materials. It has a broad compatibility in coating polymers.

  • AddWorks® LXR™ 920

    AddWorks LXR 920 is a halogen-free flame retardant for polyolefin films or fibers.The superior thermal stability results in low smokes and low odor generation during processing, even at high production temperatures. AddWorks LXR 920 is based on Hostavin NOW - Clariant´s patented aminoether HALS technology - and further provides UV protection, excellent processability to the polymer and a superior chemical resistance to halogen - or sulfur - containing products.

  • Hostanox® O 3 pills

    Hostanox O 3 pills is a highly efficient phenolic antioxidant with high resistance against hydrolysis, providing long term heat stabilization to polyolefins and polyamide especially for applications where the final article comes in contact with extractive media such as water, fat etc.

    more
  • Hostanox® OSP 1

    Hostanox OSP 1 is a high efficient antioxidant and metal deactivator which prevents the auto-catalytic decomposition of polyolefins. The usage of metal deactivators is mandatory as long as the polyolefin based finished article comes into contact with transition metals, such as Cu, Fe, Ni, Ti, etc.

  • Hostavin® N 392 micro powder

    Hostavin N 392 micro powder is a mixture of the oligomeric HALS Hostavin N 30 and a wax to improve distribution of the product in the resin. The fine particle size of Hostavin N 392 micro powder in combination with a carefully selected wax leads to a significant improvement in the distribution of the light stabilizer in the resin even in applications without strong mechanical mixing efforts like rotomoulding or sintering.

  • Hostavin® VSU P

    Hostavin VSU is an Oxalanilide UV absorber, a low volatile polar substance with good heat stability. It is resistant to discoloration with metal ions, e.g. from polymerization catalyst residues, fillers or from contact surfaces. Hostavin VSU absorbs the UV light especially in the UV-B range, and is therefore a stabilizer of choice for combinations with optical brighteners and for UV curing systems.

  • Architectural coatings in building and construction

    Our state-of-the-art coating solutions help to preserve and protect that well-being, providing e.g. dirt pickup resistance to prolong the proper looks of architectural coatings. Light stabilizer solutions contribute to making both the coatings and the substrates they protect more resistant to the highly exposed conditions they usually have to endure, like façade coatings based on styrene acrylic mixtures.

  • Powder coatings in building and construction

    We provide powerful additive solutions to make sure these coatings stay tough, even if the going gets rough! They are usable for a broad range of powder resins, such as polyester or polyester/epoxy binders and usable with Primid® products. The additives comprise not only light stabilizer solutions, but also antioxidants, thus preventing gas fading and thermal yellowing of powder coatings.

  • Wood coatings in building and construction

    The natural beauty of wood is something worthy of the best protection against weather conditions and other influences which might mar its shine and intense colors. We offer e.g. light stabilizer solutions that improve weathering resistance and reduce color fading and loss of gloss.
