No company wants to manufacture plastics that result in product that may discolor or degrade. Everyone is pushing the envelope with their process conditions to maximize production rates. Dover Chemical offers various antioxidant products that prevent oxidation, discoloration and loss of physical properties for polyolefins, engineered resins and powder coatings. These additives also work synergistically with UV stabilizers to protect polymer products from light exposure. In addition, we offer other products which can be cost-effective alternatives for brominated flame retardants. Our Doverlube stearate products are a great solution for your lubricant additive and acid neutralizer needs for many polymer systems.
