Advanced Polymer Trading FZC has started to distribute Kisuma Chemicals’ Alcamizer, a heat stabilizer for PVC.
Advanced Polymer Trading (APT), an international trading company specialising in the world wide trade of rubber, plastics and petrochemicals, has started to distribute Alcamizer – a hydrotalcite like compound that can be used as a heat stabilizer in heavy metal free PVC processing.
Alcamizer offers manufacturers high heat stability along with high transparency but without deteriorating the insulating characteristics of PVC. It works by trapping hydrochloric acid in the PVC by an ion exchange reaction. Alcamizer is also environmentally safe, as it contains no heavy metals or any sulphides.
“Alcamizer is a safe and flexible heat stabilizer and we are very pleased to make it available in our distribution channels” said Mr. Hamid Amiri, APT’s Managing Director. “As Kisuma is a market leader and global supplier of magnesium hydroxide and synthetic hydrotalcites for plastics applications, its products fit well into the sectors targeted by APT.”
Kisuma has a range of compounds that are used mainly in the engineering plastics and polymer processing industries. Along with its PVC heat stabilisation products, Kisuma compounds can be used for adding flame retardancy to cables and for halogen scavenging in poly propylene and other bulk polymers.
