Hallstar Purchases Polymer Additives Plant in Greensboro, NC
Broadens employee base, manufacturing footprint and product portfolio
New polymeric esters from Hallstar have been specifically designed to be highly compatible with low ACN (H)NBR, EPDM, TPV, TPO, PE and PP polymer compounds. The polymeric nature increases modifier permanence without sacrificing low temperature and general mechanical performance.
Evaluations confirm that a polymeric adipate, when compared with a phthalate ester, can reduce solvent extraction in vinyl foam and increase energy dissipation while maintaining foam cell structure.
