Polymers & Additives
Plastic and rubber products feature in virtually every aspect of our lives - from food packaging, carrier bags and toys, to car bumpers, mobile phones and home appliances.
Our novel polymer and additive technology platforms continue to support the development of innovations that will meet the need for sustainable and high performance solutions.
Our fatty acid amides and speciality derivatives are used in a wide range of plastic products to impart extensive benefits. Whether you are looking for process optimisation or improved part performance and aesthetics, we can deliver a speciality effect that will add value to your business. These include;
- Composite lubrication
- Mold release
- Pigment dispersion
- Scratch resistance
- Slip and anti-block
- Speciality plasticisers
- Torque release
- UV absorbers
Coatings & Polymers
We have a long and successful history in bio-based building blocks for a diverse range of applications, such as polyurethane and polyester coatings, adhesives and elastomers and foams. Many of our naturally derived building blocks are also food contact approved which opens up new application opportunities.
Our advanced portfolio of bio-based building blocks consists of a wide range of different functionalities (acid, alcohol, amine, epoxy) and offers performance properties such as;
- Extreme hydrophobicity
- Excellent colour stability
- Enhanced durability
- Good flow and wetting properties
- Improved chemical resistance
- Excellent stain and scratch resistance
- Good adhesion to a variety of substrates
