Additives for Polyethylene

Sterically hindered phenols are powerful stabilizers for the melt processing of polyolefins.

The combination of a sterically hindered phenol and a phosphyte is more effective in many instances than a phenol alone.

PE bottles

PE can undergo crosslinking as well as chain scission during processing and significant changes in molecular weight distribution can result. Thus, the materials’ mechanical properties may be reduced severely. BASF offers a very large range of products to efficiently stabilize polyethylene.
