SONGWON will be launching its new stabiliser for XPS containing new polymeric flame retardants at the upcoming AMI Masterbatch conference in Cologne, Germany, this week.
SONGXTEND 1301 stabiliser is specially designed to protect new polymeric flame retardants (pFR) in XPS applications. As the second generation stabiliser for this market, SONGWON says it maintains better molecular weight and colour of XPS containing pFR.
In addition, the SONGXTEND 1301 stabiliser offers a broader processing window compared to the current state-of-the-art stabilisers on the market.
“With SONGXTEND 1301, we are very pleased to provide the XPS market with an alternative and upgraded stabiliser,” says Thomas Schmutz, Director Global Technical Service at Songwon. “The product demonstrates Songwon’s drive to support masterbatch suppliers and XPS producers meet the challenges of the upcoming change from HBCD to pFR. We consider SONGXTEND 1301 to be the best stabiliser for XPS containing pFR.”
