Anti Oxidant Masterbatch is helpful in retaining gloss, mechanical properties of the product. It prevents surface degradation (yellowing phenomena) and oxidation by means of sunlight, high temperature or frictional heat and idling of machine. Its applications include pipes and profiles, films, injection moulded parts, blow moulded items, roto moulded tanks etc.
Plastics generally age rapidly under the effects of light, oxygen and heat leading to :
- Loss of strength, stiffness of flexibility
- Scratching and loss of gloss
