This reference profiles, in detail, more than 22,000 trade name and generic chemicals that function as plastic and rubber additive ingredients in the formulation of a variety of end products in these important industries. The extensive information about these functional materials has been gathered from more than 2300 worldwide manufacturers, their subsidiaries, and distributors. Plastic additives are a diverse group of chemicals that are either incorporated into the plastic product prior to or during processing, or applied to the surface of the product when processing has been completed. These additives aid in the processing of the plastic end product (e.g., blowing/foaming agents, mold release agents, lubricants, organic peroxides, etc.) or improve the characteristics of the final product (antimicrobials, odorants, antistatic agents, colorants, fillers/extenders, impact modifiers, and UV stabilizers, viscosity control agents, etc.). Natural rubbers and synthetic elastomers derive their commercial versatility from the incorporation of additives classified into three categories: antidegradants (including antiozonants and antioxidants), accelerators and vulcanizing agents, and specialty additives (e.g., blowing agents, plasticizers, flame retardants, softeners).
This reference coalesces current and essential information about both trade name and generic chemical additives into a single source and expedites material selection for the user by cross-referencing trade name products by chemical composition, function/application, CAS number and EINECS number. Full contact details for the manufacturers are also included.
