DHT®-4 is the flagship of our branded range of synthetic hydrotalcite-like materials. It is considered to be the industry’s gold standard for deactivation of acidic residues in polyolefins. Through irreversible deactivation of acidic substances, DHT®-4 ensures your polymers are protected and will perform to their full potential. Our products protect your assets from corrosion, prevent deactivation of functional additives, increase hydrolytic stability and improve organoleptic properties.
3x more effective than traditional acid scavengers
Global technical- and food contact approvals
Perfect for acid scavenging for polymer production and processing
DHT®-4 is the perfect material for acid scavenging in polymer production and processing. Thanks to it’s potency, DHT®-4 can be used at low dosage levels which ensures polymer physical- and optical properties are unaffected.
Unique dispersion and material properties minimizes the chance on gels, specks and defects resulting in superior optical properties translated into improved haze, gloss, and transparency properties. DHT®-4 has an impeccable track record of quality over many decades, providing customers peace of mind.
The sophisticated acid-capturing mechanism of DHT®-4 does not yield any negative by-products. Therefore, contrary to conventional acid scavengers, DHT®-4 does not contribute to migration or water-carry-over effects. This makes DHT®-4 particularly suitable for usage in materials that are bonded to other surfaces, such as metallized films. This feature of DHT®-4 also allows development of cleaner polymers for medical applications.
DHT®-4 products also fit ideally in low water-carry-over additive packages, such as those used in polyolefin raffia applications and rubber compounds which may be sensitive to swelling.
The performance properties of hydrotalcites depend mainly on their chemical composition, so precise process control over material conditions is vital to ensure consistently high quality. DHT®-4 products are produced using automated processes that are carefully monitored by our quality control system to ensure your products retain superior performance and product features.
The industry standard, used widely in all types of polymer formulations for primary or additional stabilization
