This 50% aqueous solution of 4-sulfophthalic acid is the key component of the preferred electrolyte for the production of "hard" anodic oxide coatings for aluminium-based alloys. These highly abrasion resistant coatings come in a number of colors, metallic and brownish gray, black, bronze and gold amking them suitable for achitectural usage. Anodizing with Pilot D-300 efficiently produces a range of protective and decorative oxide coatings, with moderate voltage and cooling requirements.
Based on waste corn cobs, this cyclic aldehyde functions usually as a chemical precurser for reaction into other functional chemistry. Due to the feed stock it is also used as a "green" solvent.
The smallest of alpha-hydrox-y acids can be used in a wide variety of cleaning and industrial applications. It is biodegradable, offers low corrosivity and excelent metal chelating properties.
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.
These greases are specifically formulated to lubricate molds (electrically heated and steam heated) for rubber manufacturing.
These cationic antistats compounded within coatings, treatments and plastics are used within a large array of polymers and coatings, as well as with nonwoven textiles.
Magnesium stearate is used a tableting lubricant for vitamins and medicinal pills. For personal care items, it can also provide pearlescence. Also, certain grades can be used for ABS and SAN lubricants and release agents.
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.

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.
