Titanium Dioxide (AKT-7676)
Titanium dioxide is a white pigment having high brightness and reflective index.
Areas of Use: Pure titanium dioxide is a fine, white powder that provides brightness. Paint, coating, adhesives, paper, plastic, and rubber have a series of industrial uses, including printer ink, coating fabrics and textile products, ceramics, floor coatings, roof coating materials, cosmetic products, toothpaste, soap, water purification materials, pharmaceuticals, food dyes, automotive products, sun screen, and catalytic materials.
Paints and Coatings: Titanium dioxide helps paints retain longevity and protect the painted surface while providing opacity and durability.
Plastics, Adhesives, and Rubber: Titanium dioxide can help minimize fragility, fading, and cracking that may form in plastics and other materials as a result of exposure to light.
Stearic acid is the most common and longest chain (18 C) fatty acid. It finds use as an effective active surface material and softener because of its bipolar structure. Stearic acid salts have high sliding characteristics and are used as lubricants in PVC applications.
Areas of Use: Food, electronics, detergents, soap, cosmetics, textiles
Epoxy Soybean Oil (ESBO ALPEX 5-6)
Epoxy Soybean Oil (ESBO) is a yellow, viscous liquid. It is used as a plasticizer and secondary stabilizer in PVC applications. It increases heat and light durability when used together with metal soaps.
Areas of Use: PVC applications, hard and elastic applications, piping, hoses, belt bands, panels, cables, tablecloths, etc. In addition to these, it is also used in packaging, polyurethane applications, toys, furniture, and surface paints.
Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE 800)
Chlorinated polyethylene resins have superior physical and mechanical characteristics. CPE is resistant to chemicals, heat, weather conditions, and pressure, has high performance at low heat, flame retardance, and endurance to tension and abrasion. These polymers can be used in many different areas of practice with multifaceted traits.
Areas of Use: The widest area of use of CPEs is their use for increasing impact resistance. In addition to this, they are used in window profiles, pipes, exterior facade coatings, coatings, and the automotive industry.
