Additives for PET
Introduction of PET
PET is an abbreviation of Polyethylene terephthalate (sometimes written poly(ethylene terephthalate)), which is the most common thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family.
The main application includes fibers for clothing, containers for liquids and foods, thermoforming for manufacturing, and in combination with glass fiber for engineering resins.
Baoxu Additives for PET
Baoxu Chemical Supply Antioxidants, Colorants, flame-retardants, Heat Stabilizers, Impact Modifiers, Lubricants, Nucleating Agents, OBAs, UV Stabilizers for PET plastics. We Simply Plastic Compounding.
Antioxidant for PET
Polymer antioxidants can be added to improve the shelf life of the product or to improve its high-temperature stability. while adding a stability margin during thermal processing. Antioxidant BX AO 1010, BX AO 1076, BX AO 168 is used a general purpose Antioxidant for PET plastics, BX AO 626 together with BX AO 1010 can be used for a high-performance Antioxidant for PET.
Flame Retardant for PET
Combustion could occur when a substance is heated to its flammable temperature in the presence of oxygen. Flame retardants are generally designed to provide a particular level of resistance to ignition or flame spread. This is achieved by suppressing oxygen availability, building up of char at the surface, inhibiting the combustion reaction within the flame area, or by other mechanics.
For halogen-free flame retardant for PET, aluminum diethyl phosphinate ADP BX FR ADP is recommended.
Impact Modifiers for PET
Impact Modifiers are substances that increase the durability of molded or extruded plastics, especially those that need to be constantly subjected to impact forces like cold weather. They are added to compounded materials to provide performance features. They provide strength and break resistance to the product for which they are added. They also provide rigidity to the product to prevent it from wrapping or sagging during everyday use. POE-GMA and E-MA-GMA are used as Compatibilizers and Impact modifiers for PBT. Arkema AX8900 is frequently used in PET.
Lubricant for PET
Lubricants are a kind of additive used to improve the processing and appearance of polymers. The function of lubricants is to reduce friction, improve fluidity and mold release during resin or compound processing, and increase the surface smoothness of products. Erucamide, Oleamide can be used as lubricant for PET.
Nucleating Agent for PET
Nucleating agents which also known as clarifying agents (clarifiers), improve the crystallization of semi-crystalline polymers. BX NA 101 can be used for PET..
Optical Brightener for PET
Pigment and Dyes for PET
Colorants give color to polymers, plastics, coatings, inks, and fiber. Every color we see in our daily life is related to colorants. For industry usage colorants, we offer organic pigments, solvent dyes, fluorescent pigments, and titanium dioxide. In the colorant portfolio, our products are analogs to BASF and other brands.
UV Stabilizer for PET
UV stabilizers contain two types of light stabilizers: Ultraviolet Light Absorbers (UVA) and Hindered-Amine Light Stabilizers (HALS), used individually or as blends. UVA filters harmful UV light and helps prevent color change and delamination of coatings, adhesives, and sealants. HALS trap free radicals once they are formed and are effective in retaining surface properties such as gloss and preventing cracking and chalking of paints. The combination of these two families is highly synergistic. UV absorber BX UV 329. BX UV 3638, can be used in PET as UV Stabilizer.
