LOWINOX™ CPL

Low volatility phenolic antioxidant that is especially effective in stabilizing isoprene and butadiene polymers.
Product Overview
LOWINOX™ CPL is a non-staining, non-discoloring phenolic antioxidant with low volatility. It is designed to stabilize isoprene and butadiene polymers such as SBR, MBS, and ABS, and is also effective in protecting natural and synthetic rubbers. A high resistance to extraction through boiling or washing makes LOWINOX™ CPL an excellent choice for use in carpet backing.
