Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Byk (Altana Group)
CLOISITE® -20 A by Byk (Altana Group) is an organophilic phyllosilicate. It acts as a flame retardant synergist in halogen-free flame retardant thermoplastics. It improves the flame retardant properties as well as the dripping behavior and char formation. It increases barrier properties towards oxygen, water vapor and hydrocarbons. It also improves process and physical properties and reduces the overall weight. In thermoplastics such as polyamides (PA) and bioplastics such as polylactides (PLA), it increases melt viscosity and enables an improvement in the dimensional stability during profile extrusion. By the use of CLOISITE® -20 A the filler content of, for example, aluminum or magnesium hydroxide can be reduced. It is especially recommended for use in aluminum hydroxide-filled ethylene-vinyl acetate, magnesium hydroxide-filled polypropylene, LDPE/LLDPE, PP films and PLA films. Its recommended level is 3-5%.
