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.
Lithium acetate is an ester interchange catalyst in polyester production, an anti-corrosion agent in molding polyphenylene sulfide resins, and a catalyst in alkyd resin and acrylic polymer production. It can be used as a performance catalyst or could be used to improve downstream functionality to reduce the number of side reactions, which would improve the quality of the final product. It is also used to prevent side reactions of diethylene glycol (DEG), which tends to cause bubbling on the film as well as problems with extrusion.
Lithium bromide is an absorption component of refrigerant system in absorption chillers.
Lithium stearate is designed for use in hydrocarbon and synthetic lubricant-based greases. It can also be used in metal powder molding applications.
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.
These ground and irregularly-shape dethylene vinyl acetate copolymer-based polyolefin powders have particle sizes between 300 - 500 microns.
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.

Used as an emulsifier in many food and personal care application, it can also be used to stabilize formulations, increase thickness or add lubricating 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.
