Polymer Auxiliaries

Adimoll BO Adimoll BO is a plasticizer that is used in a larger number of polymers such as PVC, styrene  butadiene rubber, and polyvinyl acetate.
Bayfomox® Bayfomox® is a family of flame retardants for polymers that can resist open fire for a long time.
Diethylphosphite Diethylphosphite is an intermediate chemical used to make agrochemicals and flame retardants.
Dimethylphosphite Dimethyl phosphate is used as a flame retardant for nylon fibers, and as a chemical intermediate in the production of pesticides and in lubricant additives and adhesives.
Disflamoll® TP Disflamoll TP is a widely-used flame retardant as well as a good plasticizer, which is used in the production of cellulose acetate films.
Disflamoll® DPK Disflamoll DPK is used as a plasticizer with many
types of polymers including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), phenolic resin, polyurethane and acrylonitrile butadiene rubber.
Genitron® Genitron® is a family of organic or inorganic additives (blowing agents) used in the manufacture of polymeric foams.
Initiator BK Initiator BK is a chemical additive that initiates polymerization reactions and retards peroxide reactions.
Levagard® Levagard products are phosphorous compounds suitable for making non-flammable polyurethane foams, polyester resins, polyurethane cast resins and textile coatings
Levagard® TEP Levagard TEP is a triethyl phosphate flame retardant for polyurethane rigid foams and thermosets, as well as a viscosity reducer for polyols and prepolymers.  
Mesamoll® Mesamoll® is a general purpose plasticizer, with good gelling behaviour and saponification resistance, which is compatible with many types of polymers including poly vinyl chloride and polyurethanes.
Porofor® ADC Porofor® ADC is a low-dust organic chemical blowing agent for the production of polymer foam that is used in polymer melts, rubber compounds and PVC plastisols.
Porofor®TSH Porofor TSH is a high-performance chemical blowing agent used for goods that must be odorless.
Triacetin® Triacetin is a clear, colorless acetate ester used for plasticising synthetic rubber and cellulose derivatives.
Ultramoll® Ultramoll®  is a family of high viscosity polymeric plasticizers for a large number of polymers, such as polyvinyl chloride acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber and polyurethane.
Vulkanol® Vulkanol® synthetic plasticizers are required as active ingredients to adjust the properties of vulcanizates, for example, to reduce hardness, modulus and tensile strength or to increase ultimate elongation and resilience.
Vulkanox BHT Vulkanox®* BHT is a highly effective antioxidant which does not discolor and is non-toxic. It protects many organic compounds from being oxidized by oxygen.
