Hycite® for Plastics
Hycite® - Acid scavenger and co-stabilizer for plastics polyolefins
Hycite® efficiently neutralizes residual quantities of acids liberated by catalysts or other decomposition products in polyolefins.
Acid scavenger and co-stabilizer for plastics polyolefins
- Efficient neutralization of acids or other decomposition products
- Reduces corrosiveness of the polymers significantly
- Great absorption capacity for acids
- Excellent dispersibility in polymers
- Applicable in transparent films
The effect of Hycite® 713 in polyolefins is due to the efficient neutralization of residual quantities of acids liberated by catalysts or other decomposition products.
At the same time the corrosiveness of the polymers is significantly reduced by the absorptive immobilization of anions, especially chloride.
In contrast to Ca-stearate, Hycite® 713 has a significantly greater absorption capacity for acids at the same dosage level, causes lower water carry-over and shows no bleed-out effect.
The excellent dispersibility in polymers is achieved by an exceptionally high fineness of the material and a special surface modification.
Therefore the application of Hycite® 713 in transparent films is possible without restrictions.
