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 stabilisers, 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.   


AddWorks® LXR™ 568

Heat/Thermal Stabilizer
AddWorks® LXR™ 568 is a highly efficient phosphorous processing stabilizer, antioxidant for polymers and heat stabilizer synergist which reduces yellowing as well as polymer degradation. It shows enhanced hydrolytic stability, a high thermal stability and high solubility in polymeric materials used for building and construction. more

AddWorks® LXR™ 920

Flame Retardant Light Stabilizer Heat/Thermal Stabilizer Service Life Extension EcoTain
AddWorks® LXR™ 920 is a halogen-free flame retardant for polyolefin films or fibers, e.g. transparent polyolefin film. 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 and excellent processability to the polymer. It is ideal to create fire resistant film used e.g. as plastic roofing sheetmore

Hostanox® O 3 PILLS

Heat/Thermal Stabilizer High Resistance
Hostanox® O 3 PILLS is a highly efficient phenolic primary antioxidant for plastics with high extraction resistance, 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, chrlorinated water, detergents, fat etc. It is ideal for polyolefines pressure pipe applications e.g. for polyethylene water pipes or for polyolefines compounds for dish washer or washing machine parts. more

Hostanox® OSP 1

Heat/Thermal Stabilizer
Hostanox® OSP 1 is a highly efficient antioxidant and metal deactivator which prevents the auto-catalytic decomposition of polyolefins and polymer degradation. 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. Hostanox® OSP 1 shows excellent processing thermal stability and a low volatiles migration. It is particularly suitable for applications such as cables, in particular power cables. more

Hostavin® ARO 8 P

Light Stabilizer
Hostavin® ARO 8 P is a benzophenone UV absorber for multipurpose uses in plastic materials and solventborne coatings. It protects polymers against damages from UV radiation and is recommended especially for LDPE, HDPE, PP, PVC, PS, PS HI, ABS/SAN, PET, PBT, PC, POM and TPU. In coatings, it is mainly used for wood protection and general industrial applications. more

Hostavin® B-CAP®

Light Stabilizer
Hostavin® B-CAP® is a non discoloring UV absorber for plastic materials, particularly engineering plastics with high demands for transparency, such as polycarbonate and polyester. It can be equally used also in PVC, styrenics, etc. It shows an excellent absorption in the UV-B rangemore

Hostavin® N 30 PILLS

Light Stabilizer Heat/Thermal Stabilizer High Resistance
Hostavin® N 30 PILLS is an oligomeric hindered amine light stabilizer (HALS), designed for light stabilization of agriculture greenhouse film. It is characterized by its broad compatibility and excellent resistance to migration. With its low basicity, Hostavin® N 30 PILLS ensures an improved agrochemical resistance as well as resistance against other chemical attacks by e.g. pesticides, acid rains, etc. more

Hostavin® N 392

Light Stabilizer
Hostavin® N 392 is a mixture of the oligomeric HALS light stabilizer 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. It shows a low alkalinity and low sensitivity to reactive chemicals, being an ideal light stabilizer for sealant applications. more

Hostavin® VSU P

Light Stabilizer
Hostavin® VSU P is an oxalanilide UV absorber, with low volatility and good heat stability. It is resistant to discoloration with metal ions, e.g. from polymerisation 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 stabilization of UV cured systems. more
