PRODUCT PORTFOLIO

PVC Stabilisers

Application: Pipe, Fitting, Window, Cable, Sheet, Film, Packaging

PVC STABILISERS

These stabilisers give PVC sufficient heat stability during processing and provide the finished article with the required durability in the course of its service life. Our products are used extensively in the building and construction as well as in furnishing and telecommunication industries. They are also commonly used for semi-rigid and plasticised PVC applications and in the manufacture of transparent packaging films and sheets, floorings, coated fabrics and automotive interiors.

Metallic Soaps

Application: Polyolefin, Polystyrene, FRP, Rubber, Paint, Cosmetic, Food, Medical, Pharmaceutical, Pigment, Cement, Coated Sand

METALLIC SOAPS

Metallic stearates can function as acid scavengers, lubricants, mould release agents, extenders, water repellent agents and other applications. This is due to their unique chemical structure and  characteristics of having a metal and organic fatty acid component. They are, therefore, widely used as additives in many industries including plastics, rubber, coatings, cement, cosmetics, food and pharmaceutical.

At SUN ACE, we produce a wide range of metallic stearates to service different market sectors. In addition, we have obtained various certifications, including Kosher, Halal, NSF and JHOSPA to support customers’ requirements. This wide collection of certifications is made possible with the selection of vegetable-based fatty acid as our raw material. This allows us to declare that our stearates are not only BSE-free but also free of animal substances.

WIRE & CABLE

Applications

Because of its excellent inherent dielectric properties, PVC has proved to be a particularly effective polymer for use in electric wire primary insulation and sheathing. Sun Ace produces a wide range of products for this application. Traditionally Lead has proved to be a very successful stabiliser, but today the development of "heavy metal free" stabilisers has been intensified.

CALENDERED SHEET & FILM

Applications

In this field there are many different stabiliser systems depending upon the final application; for rigid film, Tin stabilisers and Ca-Zn systems - which allow the production of food contact, medical, as well as technical film - are mainly used. In plasticised applications, stabilisers based on blends of metal soaps exhibiting a synergistic effect (Ba-Zn, Ca-Zn etc.) with co-stabilisers have been developed taking into consideration the end application requirements.

Some of our products

•Solid Calcium Zinc stabilisers for rigid calendered film requiring food contact approval

•Stabilisers based on Calcium and Zinc metal soaps dispersed in epoxidised soya bean oil for applications requiring food contact approval

•Solid Polymeric Octyl-tin and Butyl-tin Mercapides stabilisers offering a low emission of volatile contents

•Low Phenol and Phenol Free Liquid Barium Zinc Stabilisers

 
 

FLEXIBLE PVC

Applications

This field of applications covers a wide number of processes and a wide range of items can be produced (flexible pipes, shoes, vinyl flooring, toys, medical items, films, etc.) Tailor-made products can be developed taking into consideration the specific needs.

PACKAGING

Applications

Sun Ace has a complete range of additives for this application. Due to the market demands of crystal clarity in packaging materials and high processing temperatures, tins are generally used as stabilisers due to their excellent thermal stability. Generally bottles are produced with either Octyl tin or Methyl Tin Mercaptide Stabiliser due to the excellent heat stability that they impart. Where there is no food contact, Butyl Tin Mercaptides may be used. Where low odour and taint are requirements such as in mineral water bottles, Calcium Zinc stabilisers are preferred.

Some of our products

• Octyl, Methyl and Butyl Tin Mercaptide Stabilisers

• Calcium Zinc Stabilisers for low odour and taint applications

• MBS Impact Modifiers

• Acrylic Process Aids

 
 

NON-VINYL APPLICATIONS

Applications

COATINGS

Applications

Sun Ace have for many years been a supplier of a special grade of Zinc Stearate used for wood coating. Sun Ace also supply PVC Copolymer Resins used in lacquers and adhesives.

 

RUBBER

Applications

Sun Ace is able to offer the rubber market a range of anti-tack coatings. Many problems occur with the handling of unvulcanised rubber in the processing plants. A barrier layer can be applied to the rubber surfaces to reduce adhesion. This barrier layer can be an organic fine powder, an inorganic fine powder, an organic film as well as a combination of these. These coatings are offered in a multitude of combinations and can be applied as water dispersible clays and Stearates as well as soluble soaps.
