LOWINOX™ 22M46

LOWINOX™ 22M46 is an antioxidant for synthetic rubbers and latexes. It is also an ideal long-term stabilizer for polyoxymethyle and ABS rubber.
Product Overview
LOWINOX™ 22M46 is a non-discoloring antioxidant and stabilizer that is based on a sterically hindered alkylated bis-phenol.

LOWINOX™ 22M46 is an excellent long term stabilizer for thermoplastics such as polyoxymethylene (POM) and ABS. It offers low volatility, minimal migration and protection from light and heat induced oxidations.

LOWINOX™ 22M46 also provides long term protection for synthetic rubbers and latexes by forming synergistic systems with visibly increased effectiveness.
