LANXESS Launches Stabaxol P 110, a Hydrolysis Stabilizer for Plastics and Polyurethanes

Published on 2016-06-30. Author : SpecialChem

COLOGNE -- The LANXESS Rhein Chemie Additives (ADD) business unit is expanding its large product range of hydrolysis stabilizers for plastics and polyurethanes with the addition of Stabaxol P 110, the first product in a new line of innovative, low-emission polymeric carbodiimides based on alternative raw materials.

With Stabaxol P 110, as with the other new carbodiimides, LANXESS is addressing the trend towards customized antihydrolysis agents that are tailor-made for use in individual applications and are thus an enormous improvement with respect to stabilization performance, toxicology, emissions and handling.

Stabaxol® grade determined by the target polymer

  • PET - Fibers, films, screens, filters
  • PBT - Sheathing for optical fibers, injection-molded articles for electrical/electronic applications
  • PA - Monofilaments, industrial injection moldings, tubes, containers
  • TPEE - Cable sheathing, industrial injection moldings
  • TPU - Cable sheathing (automotive), shoe systems, injection molding (electrical/electronic), sealings
  • PU - PU hot/cold casting systems (automotive auxiliary springs, Vulkollan® applications), ester flexible foam, rollers
  • PU Rubber - Rollers, drive belts, membranes, seals

Stabaxol P 110 shows outstanding performance when used in the thermoplastics PET and PBT and in thermoplastic elastomers (TPE-E). In particular its use in the bioplastic polylactide (PLA) leads to a major extension of the service life of the final article under moist and warm operating conditions.

Stabaxol P 110 is supplied in pellet form or as an easy-flowing powder. It can be very easily processed as it does not have to be pre-heated in the production process, has a high softening point of 80 °C and is thus easy to meter uniformly.

Typical applications include monofilaments for paper machine screens, cable sheathing, engineering injection moldings and electronic housings.
