Focus on Sustainability
Sustainability of additives is paramount for Clariant International Ltd., Muttenz, Switzerland. The additives manufacturer offers non-halogenated flame retardants – Exolit for polyamides and AddWorks for polyolefins – which reduce both the risk of ignition and fire spread and give people more time to escape in the event of a fire. Improved thermal insulation and hence energy savings can be achieved with the nucleating agent Licocene for expanded polystyrene (EPS). Another area where safety and environmental aspects are paramount is coloration, with colorant PV Fast Yellow H4G acting as a substitute for lead chromate. Bio-based PV Fast Pink E/E01 pigment even goes one step further, as it is made with bio-succinic acid.
