Advanced surface solutions for plastics
Clariant offers one of the most comprehensive portfolios of waxes for the global plastics value chain. Our focus is on lubricants that increase polymer melt flow and lower the mold release force to achieve mechanically strong products with smooth surface properties. Furthermore, our solutions facilitate operations in many ways:
- Dispersing agents enhance the distribution of pigments and fillers.
- Nucleating agents improve cycle times for polyamides and polyesters.
- Coupling agents & compatibilizers strengthen the mechanical properties of reinforced or filled plastics.
Polymer producers, compounders, masterbatchers, convertors and processors are the customers we typically create value for. Our quality products are used in engineering thermoplastics, such as polyamide, polyester or polycarbonate, in standard thermoplastics like polyethylene, polypropylene, PVC or polystyrene, high temperature thermoplastics like PEEK, elastomers & rubbers, and in selected thermosets.
