Plastic additives are organic or inorganic polymers added to the polymeric compound to make them useful and render specific properties. They are added to polymer during reaction process of plastic production. These additives improve the strength to weight ratio, durability, shine, low maintenance, corrosion resistance, cost effectiveness, durability and heat sensitivity of the plastic.
Segmented by plastic types, commodity plastics acquire the major plastic additives market. Flame retardant is the prime application of plastic additives followed by plasticizers. Plastic additives are applicable in sector such as packaging, construction, consumer good, automotive, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and sports among others. Major application area of plastic additives is packaging sector. By functions, these additives are classified as property extender, property modifiers, processing aid and property stabilizers.
