Thiosynergists

Thiosynergists

Thiosynergists also function by decomposing peroxides. When used in combination with phenolic antioxidants, they provide unsurpassed protection to plastics against exposure to elevated temperatures during end-use. However, they are generally less effective than phosphites in providing protection during high temperature processing operations.  Thiosynergists are generally used for applications requiring good long term thermal stability.  Such applications include wire and cable, pipe, polyolefin under the hood automotive and adhesives.


BNX® DLTDP

Introduction:

BNX® DLTDP is a thioether antioxidant.  High solubility and superior properties make it particularly suitable for the protection of plastics, rubber, synthetic fibers, and petroleum products agains deterioration and discoloration.  Used in combination with phenolic primary antioxidants, it has proven particularly effective as a result of synergistic effects.

BNX DSTDP

Introduction:

BNX DSTDP is a thioether-type antioxidant that functions by scavenging peroxides formed during the thermal oxidative degradation of plastics and other organic materials.  Combinations of this product with hindered phenolic antioxidants (e.g. BNX 1010) provide outstanding thermal stability in polyolefins, styrenic polymers, and engineering plastics.  BNX DSTDP is non-discoloring, has good compatibility with polyolefins, styrenic polymers, and adhesives, and has low odor relative to other sulfur-based antioxidants.
