Pationic® Glycerol Esters
Pationic® glycerol esters are food-grade polymer additives based on glycerol ester, lactate, and stearoyl lactylate chemistries. Specific grades are further classified into distilled monoglyceride, mono/diglyceride, glycerol tristearate, lactylate, and lactate salt categories, while exact grades are picked based upon the amount of mono content required. All products are also FDA-compliant. Pationic products are available in various physical forms for compatibility with polymer production requirements - they are compounded into the base resin to provide premier internal mold release and antistat effects. They also can be used as antifog for PVC, dispersant for color concentrates, and catalyst neutralizer for various polymers.
