Additives for technical compounds

Additives turn polymers into high-performance technical plastics. The specific properties produced in compounding depend on the particular application. If a particularly plastic requires a certain strength, glass fibers or carbon fibers, for example, are added for reinforcement.

Other features that are supported by additives are the impact resistance, wear and friction protection, lubricity, UV, acid and light protection as well as antistatic properties. Yet even the adhesionbetween different polymersor fillers is only possible in the first place thanks to additives. Due to the fact that most polymers are flammable, flame-retardant additives are being used especially nowadays in the automotive industry.
