CARBODILITE HMV-15CA is an anti-hydrolysis agent made by Nisshinbo Chemical Inc. used to improve the quality of a variety of plastics, from PLA, PBS and PHA to PET and PBT. It reduces pyrolysis gas emissions and irritating smells during the melt molding processes of these polymers and improves yellowing resistance and weatherability.
LAK-301 is a nucleating agent for PLA by Takemoto Oil&Fat. It provides good crystallinity and high heat stability in PLA mold parts. It allows the crystallization to begin at higher temperature, which reduces cycle times during the molding process. On top of these improvements of the final product, the safety of LAK-301 made a Toy Safety certification possible, opening up to a wider range of possible applications. Along with LAK-301, Takemoto also offers anti-fog masterbatches and other additives for PE and PP-based applications.
