Features and Benefits

Irgafos 126 is a high performance solid organo-phosphite which protects polymers from degradation during the processing steps (compounding, pelletizing, fabrication, recycling). • Protects polymers from molecular weight changes (e. g. chain scission or crosslinking) • Prevents polymer discoloration due to degradation • High performance at low concentration levels • Synergistic performance when used in combination with primary antioxidants from the Irganox range. • Can be used in combination with light stabilizers from the Tinuvin and Chimasorb range.

Applications & Uses
