Additives and Compounding

Mineral fillers also increase the thermal conductivity of plastics so that they heat up and cool down quickly, meaning shorter mould cycle times and more articles produced at a lower cost. A saving of one US cent per moulding may not sound much, but if it involves producing Outdoor durability 7 several injection mouldings every few seconds, this small saving can become very significant.

Childrens toys and garden furniture, packaging, and flooring are some of the products that form the backdrop to our lives, and it is hard to over- estimate the rough treatment they have to endure.

In sports stadia, more and more spectator seating is moulded in brightly coloured plastics, and playing surfaces are often made of synthetic fibres.

Indoor swimming pools may have plastics roofing materials. All of these are exposed to the weather day and night, summer and winter, but a combination of light stabilizers, ultra-violet absorbers and antioxidants ensures consistent high performance.

Natural materials usually have to be finished off after manufacture with paints and lacquers. Plastics enjoy the advantage of already incorporating - before or during the moulding process - the additives that prolong their useful lives for many years.

From Davis, A. ENERGY SAVING When certain plastics, notably polyurethanes, are moulded at high tem- peratures, additives called blowing agents volatilize, or else decompose chemically, to form gases such as nitrogen, carbon dioxide and water vapour.

These gases, trapped in the plastics, turn the material into foam, thus increasing the thermal and acoustic insulation and the energy absorption properties, incidentally reducing weight. These foams are so commonplace that their everyday use needs little description - hamburger boxes to keep food hot, cushioning in sports shoes, buoy- ancy aids, and automobile parts where lower weight makes large savings in fuel. The kinds of chemicals used as blowing agents have changed dramatically in the past few years, in response to concern about the effects of some of these reactive chemicals on the ozone layer.

Additives have been developed that allow the sheet to capture the suns warmth during the growing season, but to break up as soon as the harvest arrives. The sheet disinte- grates gradually in sunlight and the fragments can be ploughed into the earth where the soil bacteria quickly break them down into carbon dioxide and water.

In areas of predictable climate this process can be timed to an accuracy of within seven days. Where plastics cannot be re- used or recycled, biodegradation could offer a clean, safe method of disposal.

In some other applications, biodegradation is an undesirable process from which certain plastics have to be protected by additives known as biocides. The performance of a given plastics material such as flexible PVC in outdoor and underground applications can be revolu- tionized by appropriate additives. Plastics waste disposal can cause problems, especially as plastics are usually mixed up with other types of waste such as paper, metals and food.

For recycling they really need to be sorted into individual types such as polythene, polystyrene or PVC before being mixed with virgin material.

Otherwise they have no strength if remoulded, and may literally fall apart. Sorting can be very difficult.

Polymer-bound additive functionality 9 This is an area in which additives called compatibilizers can help. They are substances which have the right chemical structure and morphology to promote a degree of miscibility between various kinds of polymer, rather as a detergent can promote miscibility between different liquids.

Compatibilizers for use with recycled plastics are currently being devel- oped and improved. Mixed plastics waste can be remoulded into fencing, pallets and road markers, thus saving valuable timber.

Additives are vital for reprocessing waste plastics into useful products for a second life. The toxicity of certain pigments, both in plastics and in paints, has been a source of concern for many years and it has been a driving force for the development of new, safer pigments which will have their applications in wider areas than those originally envisaged.

Other environmental issues have had similar beneficial consequences. The trend towards the incineration of plastics, for example, recovers consider- able energy for further use, but thought has to be given to the effects of any additives on the emissions produced. Other problems involve a simple recognition that some additives are not yet technically completely satisfactory. Flame retardants in exterior building panels have to be colour-stable if unsightly discoluration is not to occur.

This goal is not always achieved. Sometimes one additive inter- feres with, and prevents another from working. Often, biocides are needed only because certain other additives such as plasticizers and organic fillers are susceptible to biological attack.

It is the role of the addi- tive technologist and polymer formulator to overcome such problems. Nevertheless the benefits of additives far outweigh the disadvantages. There are potential advantages in this approach, which could be applied for example to antioxidants, so that they would be stable and would not leach out of the polymer during exposure to rain or other sources of moisture.

It must be said that, at present, the main trend is towards having more addi- tives, and using ever more complex formulations to achieve a range of desirable properties.

It has becomes more and more difficult to advise how say PVC will behave, because there is no unique substance called PVC on the market, only several hundred diverse grades of PVC, all 10 Additives are essential containing specific additives which help to ensure fitness for purpose.

While, ironically, voices are now being raised questioning whether cadmium pigments are really such a danger to the environment, new pigment systems are being commercialized that can effectively replace them and give brilliance that is comparable. Colorants in liquid form are another area of study, to give processors the flexibility of changing colours within a production run, and pigments that give novel effects such as metallics, pearlescents, and 'flip-flop' colour changes are increasing in popularity.

In this direction, the development of hindered amine light stabilizers HALS has been the most significant achievement, and there is also considerable research into the synergistic effects of employing two stabilizer systems in a compound. Recent development has been aimed especially at systems also Types of Additive and the Main Technical Trends 9 offering zero or very low emission of smoke and fumes when exposed to the heat of combustion.

The critical end products involved are housings for consumer and office electronics equipment, wire and cable sheathing, and as a result of recent tragedies electrical equipment and rolling stock used for railways. There is a move also in Europe to limit or prevent the use of flame retardants based on brominated systems, on the grounds of alleged difficulty in recycling, but this is being strongly opposed by the industry and there is disagreement also among legislators.

A consequence of the need for investment in research and development will be the rationalization of the number of types on the market, and the emergence of a limited number of grades possibly with fewer manufacturers. Many of the new developments in individual additives are now being offered at the same time in safe, convenient technical masterbatch formulations.

There is also extensive development of systems based on metal fibres, to give higher protection or shielding against electromechanical interference. For many years, world authorities have operated a degree of control over the use of additives in critical applications such as food contact and medical products.

A review of the relevant legislation is given in Chapter 2 3.

In the USA, the relevant authority is the Food and Drug Administration which also exerts considerable influence over products worldwide. In July it ratified an EU directive on food contact, listing additives in food-contact plastics that will require migration testing. Production of compounds for use in the medical sector has become an attractive if very demanding 'niche' for highly qualified specialists, able to operate globally, with strong financial resources. The advantages show themselves particularly in medical products and packaging.

Compatibilizers are increasingly used to aid the more effective use of other additives. A further cost pressure is the necessity to comply with legislation - often worldwide - and to be able to provide customers right down the line with documentation to prove compliance.

The use of self-colouring, however, is growing again, with the availability of more reliable and cheaper dosing equipment, with greatest growth being in gravimetric systems. Specialist Hanna notes that the cost of pre-colouration can generally be taken as about the same as that of compounding, which is about 0.

Masterbatch at 7. Adding the cost of the dosing equipment adds about 0. Most major suppliers now offer masterbatches containing special additive formulations.All of these are exposed to the weather day and night, summer and winter, but a combination of light stabilizers, ultra-violet absorbers and antioxidants ensures consistent high performance.

The same basic polymer is used for flexible tubing, foam, rigid pipe, outdoor pond lining, clothing, pigmented wire coating, and clear bottles. Searle and R. We need to explain that they are not simply optional extras; they are essential ingredients which can make all the difference between success and failure in plastics technology.
