Sandostab P-EPQ high-molecular-weight phosphonite secondary antioxidant for polyolefins and engineering resins is stable to 660 F and highly soluble and compatible in polyolefins, especially lower-density polyethylenes. Broadly FDA-approved with low migration, it synergizes with sulfur and phenolic antioxidants and lactones and is not deactivated by fillers such as talc. Especially suited for low-water-carryover polyolefin applications like 2X100 mil slit tapes. Also recommended for applications requiring high clarity. Product continues to be used for all polyolefins, styrenics, PC, polyesters, polyamides, polyether imides and other engineering resins to aid in maintaining color, rheological control and physical properties. Sandostab P-EPQ also inhibits burnout of many borderline heat-stable colorants for polyolefins and engineering resins and aids in dispersion of fillers and colorants and extends uv stability of recycled resins by providing better physical property retention of recycled resins prior to uv exposure.
