New concept in stabilisers for polypropylene fibre production

Great Lakes Chemical Corporation : 26 June, 2003  (New Product)
Great Lakes Chemical Corporation has launched Anox FiberPlus polymer stabiliser blends, for the process stabilization of polypropylene fibres.
Anox FiberPlus polymer stabilizer blends combine Great Lakesí stabilizers into proprietary blends, each offering a unique combination of benefits, in a free flowing, non-dusting product form that ensures accurate incorporation during fibre manufacturing. Anox FiberPlus is also available in a powder blend.

Anox FiberPlus blends allow manufacturers of polypropylene fibre grades to achieve good process stability and outstanding colour protection, in addition to being resistant to gas fading of the polymer. UV stability and long term heat aging can also be controlled by Anox FiberPlus blends based on the durability and UV protection needs of the finished product.

Anox FiberPlus blends are suitable for use in both non-cracked and cracked polypropylene fibres. In the production of cracked fibre grades, peroxide is generally added to polypropylene to increase the melt flow index of the polymer and to narrow the molecular weight distribution. Anox FiberPlus blends allow a significant reduction in peroxide consumption compared to other commercially available stabilizer systems, offering a unique performance versus cost solution to the polypropylene fibre market.

Anox FiberPlus blends are ideally suited for polypropylene fibre production of a wide variety of finished goods from hygienic and medical goods such as disposable diapers to durable products such as carpet pile and backing, ropes, outdoor clothing, and agro/geotextiles.

Anox FiberPlus blends are the first in Great Lakes' new range of stabilizer solutions that leverage the companyís extensive knowledge of additives and their synergies, polymers where these additives are used, demands of end use applications, and, ultimately, market needs.
