Thermal and light stabilizers > for the recycling of plastics

The recycling of plastics plays and increasingly important role for the life cycle of plastic articles.  Special considerations need to be taken into account in view of plastics materials which have suffered some initial degradation during primary processing and service life. Such initial degradation is being aggravated by secondary processing and life cycle as stabilizers are being consumed. BTC Europe supplies a broad product portfolio of processing and long-term thermal stabilizers and light stabilizers. This includes a variety of technologies such as phosphite processing stabilizers, primary phenolic antioxidants, thiosynergists and metal deactivators, and HALS.  Adding our stabilizers Irgafos®, Irganox®, Irgastab®, Irganox®, Irgastab®, Chimassorb®, Tinuvin®, Uvinul®, Hycite® to recycled plastics materials helps to prevent thermally and/or light induced degradation which can lead to early failure of end use articles produced from recycled plastics.

Properties

BTC’s processing stabilizers, thermal stabilizers and HALS light stabilizers are chosen in dependence on the polymer in use, the processing technology and/or the required end use article performance. They are selected based on their thermal stability, substrate compatibility, volatility, absorption range, or regulatory classification as needed.

Applications

BTC’s thermal, processing and HALS light stabilizers are suitable for polyolefins, PVC, styrencis, elastomers, rubbers, and engineering polymers to help our customers meet the specific needs.  The stabilizers find use in the key recycled plastics markets such as automotive, agriculture, building and construction, electric & electronics, packaging and textiles & fibres.
