Purging Agents

Purging agents are an important part of plastics production.  Without a great purging agent, defects such as specks or streaking may cause parts to be rejected.  Rejected parts and machine downtime impact the whole operation.  With our selection of purging agents, you’ll not have to worry about the cost of rejected parts or machine downtime.

Chemical Foaming Agents

If you want to reduce sink marks, cycle time, and reduce weight, chemical foaming agents are a great option.  We have several products to choose from. Not sure exactly what CFA is right for your application?  Phoenix Plastics can meet with you to discuss your application and your past experiences, if any, and suggest a high-quality chemical foaming agent that is sure to serve your needs exceptionally well.

Process Aids

Looking for flow enhancement, dispersants, mold release, to increase productivity or eliminate dye build up?  Phoenix Plastics can help!  Process aids make up our most broad and vast product offerings that can be tailored to polyolefins, nylons, and other engineered resins.  If you are looking for high-quality process aids, we are ready to assist with the highest quality products on the market.

Stabilizers

Stabilizers are an important consideration in the manufacturing of plastics because all polymer chains have to be protected or they risk decomposition breakdown.  Understanding this need, Phoenix Plastics offers a wide selection of ultraviolet, thermal, and anti-oxidant stabilizers that can be tailored to your process and resin system.

Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor

A volatile corrosion inhibitor, or VCI, is an important consideration in many applications.  A VCI is a substance that works to reduce corrosion. We offer several varieties of non-nitrated VCI masterbatches that offer multi-metal corrosion protection for steel parts.

Antimicrobial Additives

Antimicrobial additives are a great option for use with plastics because fungi and bacteria are both known to feed on plastics and plastic additives.  Antimicrobial additives protect against this, as over time if this process is not stopped it can cause breakdown and product failure.  Phoenix Plastics is proud to provide several options for antimicrobial additives and can help you choose the best product for your specific application.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are a great option when you want to protect your plastic products from insects and other pests but other additives may not be appropriate because they could be toxic to people, plants, or animals in the application. You can learn more about the benefits of essential oil additives here.

Degradable Additives

Looking for high-quality degradable additives that you can depend on?  Phoenix Plastics can provide you with exactly what you need for your specific application.

Flame Retardants

Flame retardants are an important consideration as they can effectively, slow down polymer combustion and degradation, reduce smoke emission, avoid drippage of melting polymers and minimize the spread and effect of a fire.  New to flame retardants or not sure which one is right for your use?  We would be happy to help!

Phoenix Plastics Would Love to Assist with Your Plastics Needs

As long as there are plastics there will need to be additives to make the manufacturing process as simple and as straightforward as possible while also working to protect the end-user.   Phoenix Plastics would love to work with you to solve all of your additives needs.  Contact us today to get started!
