New all-in-one plasticized PVC protection for indoor and outdoor applications.
SANITIZED AG, the leading worldwide producer of antimicrobial hygiene function and material protection for textiles and plastics is launching two new advanced additives designed for the protection of plasticized PVC for the Chinese market.
In addition to highly effective and long-lasting antimicrobial action, the two products offer a range of application-specific benefits including longer life-cycles, improved weather and thermal stability, as well as higher resistance to UV and yellowing.
The first of these new products, Sanitized® PL 12-32, is a formulation with excellent water resistance and UV stability which make it highly suited to outdoor applications such as awnings and tents. The second new product, Sanitized® PL 12-33 is characterized by high thermal stability, regardless of elevated temperatures that may be necessary during processing, with the ability to retain product transparency. Its properties make it perfect for indoor applications such as flooring and furnishings.
Plastisols, coatings or foams employed in many flexible PVC products are very sensitive to attacks from microbes. Especially in outdoor applications, the extra-cellular enzymes in such microbes can break down plasticizers—and other additives that are susceptible to them. The result is that PVC products become stiff and brittle, cracks begin to form and the flexible PVC subsequently decomposes over time. By applying these new Sanitized® additives the life-cycle can be successfully increased.
Sanitized® PL 12-32 and Sanitized® PL 12-33 protects against the unwanted effects of microbes, like bacteria, mold fungi, mildew, yeasts and algae—all of which can cause material destruction, unsightly stains, cross contamination, odor development and biofilm formation.
Sanitized® formulations significantly reduce initial discoloration and yellowing in use. The new Sanitized® products have been individually tailored to provide the most suitable choice for different applications and to ensure long-lasting antimicrobial protection, thermal stability during processing, best transparency and high resistance to UV and yellowing.
Introducing the two new products, Maria Toscan, Product Manager, Polymers at SANITIZED AG says: “No single substance is perfect for all applications, as each has its benefits and limitations. By combining benefits and reducing limitations, we are able to offer our customers a clear choice of application-specific solutions that fully meet their needs and provide a guaranteed highest antimicrobial efficacy. SANITIZED AG distribution partner for the Chinese market is Dunwa Chemicals Ltd. who will be present at Chinaplas from April 23-26 in Shanghai New International Expo Center at booth N3S03. SANITIZED AG and Dunwa are working together to provide the best solution to plastic manufacturers protecting their products against microbe attacks, and offer consumers premium products with extra protection and freshness. With the quality product from SANITIZED AG and the established sales network of Dunwa, both companies believe business could be developed effectively and efficiently in China.
