ETHOCEL™ is a organosoluble (water-insoluble) polymer that functions as a binder, flexible film former, or time releasing agent for a broad range of industries. While commonly used in the food and pharmaceutical industries, ETHOCEL is also used in industrial applications such as coatings and paint.

This isothiazolinone-based preservative is used to protect polymers, coatings, adhesives and pigments and is an effective and efficient in-can preservative for systems with pH 2-8.5, extending shelf life of a product in its wet state. If long-term preservation of a finished adhesive or coating is desired, a thin film fungicide or mildewcide is needed.
Polybond® Polypropylene-Based Coupling Agents are coupling agents, compatibilizers and adhesion promoters for glass, mica, talc, wood, and natural fiber reinforced polypropylene giving enhanced physical and thermal properties.

Produced from vegetable-sourced fatty acids and therefore imparts low odor, it provides great wetting, thickening, emulsifying and opacification for personal care products. Also, it can be used as a gelling agent in gel sticks.
Twinkling Star Antimony Trioxide (ATO) is a white, solid powder that is used as a fire retardant in conjunction with a halogen-based chemical to reduce a product’s flammability. It functions as a synergist thereby reducing the amount of halogen-based product required to achieve desired levels of flammability.
In rigid and plasticized PVC compounds, the addition of ATO will offer excellent flame retardant properties. In other resins that do not contain a halogen, a suitable chlorinated or brominated compound must be added to obtain the required flame retardant properties. It is most suitable for applications where high tint strength is acceptable.
