Plastic Additives Do You Know The Purpose Of Adding Additives To Plastics?

With the development of science and technology, plastic additives have also appeared in our lives. I believe everyone is not very familiar with plastic additives. So what is the purpose of adding additives to plastics? The following plastic additives manufacturers will explain their purpose.

    Plastic additives The main purpose of adding additives to plastics is to improve processing performance, increase efficiency and reduce costs. Additives account for a small proportion of plastic materials, but they have a great impact on the quality of plastic products. Different types of plastics require different types and amounts of additives due to different molding methods and use conditions. The main additives include the following categories: Plasticizers: Plasticizers can increase the flexibility, extensibility, and plasticity of plastics, reduce the flow temperature and hardness of plastics, and are beneficial to the molding of plastic products. Commonly used are phthalic acid esters, sebacic acid esters, chlorinated paraffin and camphor. Our most common is camphor. Flame retardant: The auxiliary agent that can improve the flame resistance of plastic is called flame retardant. Most plastics containing flame retardants have self-extinguishing properties, or slow down the burning rate. Commonly used flame retardants include antimony oxide, aluminum and boron compounds, halides, phthalic anhydride, and tetraophthalic anhydride.

    From the above, we understand the purpose of adding plastic additives to plastics and the classification of additives. I believe that through our introduction, everyone must know about plastic additives, and I hope it can be helpful to everyone.
