To better serve our customers, we supply our polymer chemicals' products and services from two separate business groups. This allows us to focus on the specific needs of each market while leveraging our global distribution and service networks, manufacturing expertise, global RD&I, and expertise in safe handling of hazardous materials.
High Polymers (HP)
HP covers organic peroxides, antifouling agents, metal alkyls and organometallic specialties used in the manufacture of high polymers. We also offer a whole range of polymer additives in one stop.
These products are used in everything from PVC production and polymerization of polyolefins by Ziegler-Natta catalyst systems, to making plastics antistatic and electroconductive and controlling the rheology of your polypropylene. In fact, we supply the entire polymer chain.
Our products are also used in chemical synthesis of medicines and fine chemicals. In addition, we manufacture high purity metalorganics for the semiconductor industry.
Cross-linking Peroxides, Thermoset Chemicals and Polymer Additives (XTP)
XTP covers organic peroxides used for the cross-linking of elastomers (rubbers) and thermoplastics as well as the curing of thermoset resins, coatings and specialty monomers.
In the composite market we also supply a whole range of auxiliary products, such as accelerators and promoters.
From antistatic additives to superconductive carbon blacks and synthetic organoclays to high performance flame retardants and synergists, we also offer a whole range of polymer additives which improve processing of polymers and enhance their properties.
HP and XTP are part of business unit AkzoNobel Functional Chemicals.
