WHEN DIFFERENTIATION COUNTS
The right concentration and combination of additives can result in resin-specific dispersions that improve a product’s functionality or stability, creating unique product advantages over the competition.
We specialize in taking base polymers and enhancing them with additives that are engineered to consistently and positively impact the physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of the plastic.
ADDITIVES WE USE IN OUR PRODUCTS:
Protect your products from a breadth of microorganisms with antimicrobial additives designed for synthetic fibers, nonwovens, turf, and plastic products.
Provide protection from UV light-induced degradation. Everything from fibers and profile extrusions to molded parts can be defended against weathering.
Our flame-retardant additives may be the most critical measure that manufacturers can take to protect end-users in a wide variety of plastics applications.
With step-by-step guidance focused on helping you achieve the right look and performance for your products, our color additive experts know how to design the right color concentrate and compounds for your manufacturing process.
While reducing wear and friction characteristics of engineered thermoplastic compounds, Americhem’s industrial lubricant additives eliminate the need for external greasing of parts.
Chemical-resistant plastics are playing an increased role in the design and manufacturing of a wide range of products. At Americhem, we offer decades of experience and comprehensive knowledge relating to the chemical resistance of plastics.
CARBON FIBER REINFORCEMENTS
With carbon fiber applications being more prolific than ever, Americhem stands ready to support existing and emerging technologies with carbon fiber reinforcements that can be compounded with most resins to achieve outstanding mechanical properties.
GLASS FIBER REINFORCEMENTS
One of the easiest ways to improve a polymer’s mechanical strength and dimensional stability is to include glass fiber reinforcements. Americhem leverages its specialty engineered compounding expertise to offer glass fiber reinforced plastics.
A SPECTRUM OF UNLIMITED OPPORTUNITIES
