Pationic® Glycerol Esters


PATCO 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 on the amount of mono content required. 

All grades are 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 agent effects. They also can be used as antifogging or antistatic agents for PVC, dispersants for color concentrates, and catalyst neutralizers for various polymers.
