AddWorks® LXR™ 920

Aminoether HALS

Edition Number :
6
Edition Date :
March 15, 2018
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.
