Antioxidants for Adhesives

Adhesives and their raw materials react like other organic materials with oxygen in a process called autoxidation. This guide offers you an extended overview of Antioxidants in the adhesives & sealant industry. You will be able to select the antioxidant you need from the different antioxidant families mentioned here. This guide will also take a look into antioxidant benefits and applications. You can also check how to test and determine the efficiency of the antioxidant(s) you have selected.

Antioxidants Selection

The selection of an antioxidant system is mainly dependent upon the polymer to be stabilized. For example, polypropylene is less stable than the polyethylene and will require a more effective stabilization package. In addition, the anticipated melt processing temperature and the expected service temperature will determine the type of antioxidant that should be used.

Below mentioned are crucial parameters that need to be considered when selecting an antioxidant for any particular adhesive formulation:
