STRUKTOL® - Specialty Additives for the Polymer Industry
STRUKTOL® Additive Solutions! Struktol is a leading manufacturer of lubricants and processing additives for all major polymers including PE, PP, PVC, ABS, PC, Nylon and other polymer systems. These additives are particularly useful in highly filled systems where good flow, good surface and properties are difficult to obtain.
When it comes to plastics additives, Struktol's vast chemical experience is translated into the most intelligent solutions available anywhere. Each of Struktol's plastic additives is tested and retested to insure maximum product quality and performance consistency. And Struktol continually invests in extensive plastic additives research and development, resulting in reductions in the total number of additives required for many compounds. This persistent research into changing and improving the processing and performance characteristics of compounds and resins will open many new windows of opportunity for the future.
Struktol’s complete line of additives that function individually or in combination as adhesives, lubricants and surfactants are all accompanied by a wide range of benefits. Struktol’s lubricant products for PVC compounding and processing contain simple and complex fatty acid esters, primary amides, refined natural waxes, metallic stearates and lubrication packages that can be used in a wide range of PVC applications such as calendering, extrusion, blow molding and injection molding.
Final products include rigid PVC film and sheet, as well as extruded profiles and injection molded goods. Struktol’s WPC additives are available for all types of WPC polymer systems and requirements. They can provide improved filler dispersion, lower viscosities, improved surface appearance, reduced edge-tearing, significantly increased output rates and overall lower costs. In addition, they offer engineered coupling agents to improve physical properties as well as capstocks for PE and PP/WPC.
The newest additions to the Struktol additives line are the processing aids for engineered polymers. They are especially suited for nylon and PC compounds. In every type of polymer they also offer a full line of additives for recycled compounds. These include processing additives, compatibilizers and homogenizers, coupling agents, odor control agents and neutralizers.
