ANOX™ 20 Powder

ANOX™ 20 Powder is a high molecular weight hindered phenolic primary antioxidant. Effective as a process stabilizer, but is especially powerful at preventing polymer degradation during long-term aging.
Product Overview
ANOX™ 20 Powder is a high molecular weight hindered phenolic antioxidant that primarily functions as a polymer stabilizer preventing degradation in long-term aging. Also provides defense against polymer degradation and discoloration during processing. Ethanox 310 has been rebranded to ANOX™ 20.
