New anti-aging system in the LUBIO® AS series
- Multifunctional additive system for the stabilization of ester containing polymers
- Outstanding hydrolysis stabilization
- Protection against thermic and light induced aging
- Toxicologically and ecotoxicologically harmless
Due to its highly effective functional groups, LUBIO® AS 18 prevents the breakdown of polymers. It is capable of rapidly binding with free acids and radicals which initiate polymer breakdown and are frequent cause of functional loss in man-made material. Additionally, LUBIO® AS 18’s cross-linking properties ensure the relinkage of already broken polymer strands and thereby care for the overall preservation of the mechanical properties of products.
With the introduction of LUBIO® AS 18 to the market, LUBIO ADDITIVES brings a new product that ensures an optimal long-term stabilization of conventional ester-based plastics as well as modern bioplastics. Apart from providing excellent hydrolytic resistance, LUBIO® AS 18 also gives materials out of PLA, PET, PBT, and many more, additional protection towards thermic, oxidative, and photolytic decomposition.
LUBIO® AS 18 can be used in numerous polymer types. The low emission potential and ecotoxicological safety of this product demonstrate several of the many advantages of LUBIO® AS 18 relative to the classical hydrolysis protection additives used in polyesters.
