Advancing meaningful innovation in the field of materials science
We empower the chemical industry to push the boundaries of material sciences with
Polymer additives for thermoplastics
Our product SIDISTAR™ in foamed thermoplastics
Polymer additives thermoplastics, providing critical features such as better extrudability in processing and, for end-users, excellent flame retardancy, improved rheology, protection against dynamic fatigue and more consistent fibre and halogen dispersion for a wide range of applications.
Polymer additives for coatings
Our product SIDISTAR™ in coatings
Our product SIDISHIELD™ is a multifunctional additive for coatings which provides advantages during the production, the application and the final use of the coating. It can be used in water born, solvent based, 2-component and powder coatings. SIDISHIELD™ additive is available both in a hydrophilic and a hydrophobic variety.
Polymer additives for rubber compounds
Our product SIDISTAR™ in rubber compounds
The SIDISTAR™ ball bearing effect has a clear advantages for both cured as well as uncured compounds. Significant improvements in mixing energy and efficiency are observed. There are cases where the number of mixing cycles could be reduced from 3 passes into just 2 passes with improved homogeneity of the final compound.
Basic silicone fluids for chemical formulations
Silicone fluids: versatile ingredients for industrial applications
Silicone fluids are silicone oils which feature different degrees of polymerization and therefore viscosity. In silicone fluids or oils, the polymeric chains form spirals with a very high methyl density and thus low intermolecular association, which enables them to glide and slip over one another. They are very versatile and by replacing some of the methyl groups with phenyl (inert), vinyl or amino groups (reactive), it is easy to modify them, thus enabling formulators to provide oils with specific characteristics for different applications.
