About Plastic Additives


about plastic additives

The product portfolio of plastic additives for masterbatches and compounds consists of TEGOMER®/TEGOPREN® performance additives for improvement of mechanical properties or processing parameters and TEGOMER® dispersing agents for pigments and fillers.

The performance additives are intended to improve e.g. the scratch resistance of olefins as well as technical polymers or they can help to produce highly filled HFFR compounds. The dispersing additives are developed to save cost by reducing the amount of expensive pigments which is necessary to achieve a desired color strength. This effect is a result of a superior dispersion of the pigment particles and agglomerates in the polymer matrix.

Organomodified siloxanes (OMS) are  used during the production of polymeric materials as processing additives for extrusion, injection, and blow molding.  In addition to serving as compatible internal slip and release agents, these specialties can also be applied as surface modifying agents or as material property enhancers by permanent implementation in thermoplastics and elastomeric polymers. As a result, they are used in a wide variety of applications, such as automotive parts, domestic and consumer goods.
