Manufacturers who work with plastic materials rely on plastic additives for a variety of purposes. The ultraviolet (UV), thermal, and anti-oxidant stabilization plastic additive properties provide cost-effective solutions to plastic protection. They prolong the life of polymers in various plastics by protecting them from degradation in unfavorable environments. Here are the protective benefits of Phoenix Plastics’ UV, thermal, and anti-oxidant stabilizers.
Consider These Plastic Additives for Maximum Protection
Phoenix Plastics offers stabilizers that protect polymers from the harshest conditions. Below, manufacturers and other industrial companies can find which plastic additive products work best for their polymer protection needs.
Prolonged sun exposure shortens the lifespan of plastics. Over time, UV rays damage plastic by causing photo-oxidation. Surface polymers break down, resulting in color fading and material degradation.
The Cel-Span UVS 717 offers maximum UV protection that extends the life of plastics by 5-10 years. It contains Hindered Amine Light stabilizers, which continually repopulate themselves while providing UV stabilization to polyolefins. This product is made from polyethylene and polypropylene resins. It is best applied to injection molding, blow molding, film, and sheet The Cel-Span UVS 717 offers maximum UV protection that extends the life of plastics by 5-10 years.

Heat is one of the leading causes of polymer degradation in plastics. If plastic items get stored near heat-generating equipment, in the sun, or other high-temperature environments then those plastics will likely become prone to the breaking or cracking of the polymer molecular chains. Which in turn leads to crosslinking and visbreaking as well as the loss of physical properties.
Don’t let your plastics lose their form and strength in high-temperature environments. The Cel-Span S 310 thermal stabilizer contains compound anti-oxidants in its HDPE & LLDPE blends for maximum thermal stabilization. This plastic additive has a melting point of 190 degrees Celsius, making it perfect for molding, extrusion, and shutdown purge.
Storing plastics out of the sun and away from high-temperature environments doesn’t always provide protection. Other factors such as moisture, chemical exposure, and oxidation often cause polymers to lose their physical integrity.
Consider the anti-oxidant stabilization capabilities of the Cel-Span S 100 for plastic manufacturing and moderate temperature storage. This plastic additive enhances the color of plastics and improves polymer durability. As it is made from polyolefin resins, this product is ideal for extrusion and compounding.
