ANOX™ 20 Granular

ANOX™ 20 Granular is a high molecular weight hindered primary phenolic antioxidant. It prevents polymer degradation during long-term aging in various polymer systems.
Product Overview

ANOX™ 20 Granular is a high molecular weight hindered phenolic antioxidant that primarily functions as a polymer stabilizer and prevents degradation during storage and long-term aging. It also enhances the stability and resistance to discoloration during processing of plastics and elastomers.
ANOX™ 20 Granular also protects from scorching during the processing of polyols, polyurethanes, and foam formulations.
