Addivant™ to Showcase Polymer Additives Innovations at Chinaplas 2018
SHANGHAI, P.R. of CHINA (April 18, 2018) – Leading polymer additives supplier Addivant will showcase its cutting-edge material technologies and latest eco-friendly initiatives at the upcoming Chinaplas 2018 show April 24-27 in Shanghai, PR of China (Hall 8.2H, Stand P41).
Addivant`s newest solutions are highly relevant for the fast-growing Chinese market and its increasing demand for higher performing, yet clean and sustainable additive systems. Critical applications include the rapidly evolving food packaging market in China which requires the highest levels of reliability and safety to enable the entire value chain to be compliant with the newest standards being implemented. China is also the world’s largest domestic automobile market, which is at the forefront of innovation, effectiveness, and safety while setting stricter standards in all areas. Addivant has effective solutions for these challenging areas in its industry-wide recognized product lines such as LOWINOX®, NAUGARD®, WESTON®, ANOX®, ULTRANOX®, OCTAMINE®, LOWILITE®, POLYBOND® and ROYALTUF®.
Among Addivant`s newest innovations at Chinaplas are next-generation, ultra-low emissive anti-scorch antioxidants for polyurethane (PUR) foams. NAUGARD® FOAMPLUS LE solutions enable compliance with the most stringent vehicle indoor air quality (VIAQ) standards being implemented globally. Addivant will also provide an update on its breakthrough nonylphenol-free stabilizer WESTON® 705, which is becoming the industry standard for polyethylene (PE) food packaging and allows PE resin producers to comply with China’s new GB9685-2016 food contact law. WESTON® 705 has secured final approval for food contact in China, making it the most broadly approved and thoroughly tested high-performance antioxidant, with approvals in use for over 180 countries worldwide. A new generation of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) packaging based on WESTON® 705 has successfully hit consumer shelves, bringing a new level of safety, performance, and efficiency in food packaging across the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
Additionally, Addivant will discuss new technical capabilities and customer service expansion for its ANOX® NDB® non-dust solutions, which will further increase the differentiation of this solution platform that already today offers the best homogeneity in the industry with excellent composition consistency, enabling lower dosage levels and reduced costs for customers.
Along with the focus on automotive, Addivant will highlight a range of next-generation solutions for advanced applications in wire and cable, building and construction, and recycling.
Besides the technology innovations, Addivant will discuss its commitment to investment in new capacity to meet its customers increasing needs for differentiation and supply security. The company is expected to announce several capacity expansions within the next six months which will enable its growth in Europe and Asia. “Furthermore, we are committed to regulatory compliance demonstrated by the registration (both food contact and chemical inventory) of over 150 products globally over the last five years,” said John Steitz, President and CEO of Addivant.
