Applications
  • BRUGGOLEN® H324 is a very effective antioxidant and heat aging protection agent for the use in unfilled and glass-reinforced polyamides.
  • Note: BRUGGOLEN® H324 generates after conditioning of polyamides a typical greenish or bluish discoloration. Violet-black to dark brown may possibly occur by formation of copper or copper oxides.
  • For specific applications specially tailored BRUGGOLEN® - additives can be offered Engineering Polymers, as well as AP-NYLON® Caprolactam, the key component for Cast Polyamide 6.

Technical Details & Test Data

Processing
  • The addition to the polymer melt is best done by compounding on twin screw extrusion machines. Only this will lead to the desired optimum dispersion of the stabilizer in the compound. Dry blending of BRUGGOLEN® H324 along with polymer granules will not lead to an optimum dispersion of the additive in the melt during injection molding.
  • However, to support the dispersion of BRUGGOLEN® H324 when making a dry-blend, it is recommended that our BRUGGOLEN® P60 as adhesive agent is used.

Safety & Health

Product Safety
  • BRUGGOLEN® H324 is classified as hazardous according to the valid CLP- Regulation. Signal word: Danger. Hazard-determining components of labeling: copper iodide / potassium iodide
  • H315 Causes skin irritation. H318 Causes serious eye damage.
