Thermoplastic Compounds

We are a key supplier to many automotive compounders, especially those that produce injection molded parts with halogenated or organophosphorus flame retardants. DHT™-4 products are used to stabilize the formulations in materials such as nylon or polyolefin, helping to avoid corrosion of molding equipment and the release of toxic smoke.

Rubber Compounds

DHT™-4 contributes to thermal and chemical resistance of synthetic rubber parts such as fuel hose inner liners and seals. Crucially, these additives do not cause swelling in contact with moisture as they do not contribute to water-carryover.

Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, Elastomers (C.A.S.E.)

Products in the DHT™-4 range can function as stabilizers of raw materials or finished products. For paint coatings, these additives provide anti-corrosion, shelf-life extension, improved weatherability, and stain and blooming reduction benefits.
