Plastic Additives

Industry Overview:

Additives make plastics not only feasible but they also provide color, safety, cleanliness and durability. They affect almost every segment of industry -- car bumpers, sports equipment, videotape, cables and much more.

Still, the market demands more, and it offers more opportunities. Can you make plastic additives more weather resistant? Stronger? More lubricated? These are some of the areas being tackled as teams seek ways to create new applications, reduce costs and create more eco-friendly processes.
