Stabilizers for polymers are used singly or in combinations to prevent the oxidation, chain fission, uncontrolled recombinations and cross-linking reactions that are caused by photo-oxidation of polymers. Polymers become weathered by the direct or indirect impact of heat and ultraviolet light. MileOx antioxidants are used to terminate the oxidation reactions caused by different weathering conditions and reduce the degradation of organic materials. They inhibit the formation of free radicals thereby enhancing the photo- and heat-stability of polymers.
Milestat antistatic agents are compounds used to treat materials or their surfaces to reduce or eliminate build-up of static electricity caused by the triboelectric effect. They make the surface or the material itself slightly conductive, either by being conductive themselves, or by absorbing moisture from the air, by the use of certain humectants.
Milebrome brominated flame retardants (BFR) are organobromide compounds that have an inhibiting effect on the ignition of combustible organic materials. They are widely used, being very effective in standard and engineering plastics and textile applications. Brominated flame retardants are also commonly used in electronic products, building materials and furniture as a means of reducing the flammability of the product.

Mileflame non-halogenated flame retardants are based on the elements phosphorus and nitrogen. The phosphorus-containing flame retardants are widely used in standard and engineering plastics, polyurethane foams, thermosets, coatings, and textiles. Phosphate esters are mainly used in engineering plastics, phenolic resins and coatings. Ammonium polyphosphate compounds are primarily used in intumescent coatings but are also effective in rigid and flexible polyurethane foams and injection moulded polyolefins, in formulations for unsaturated polyesters, phenolics, epoxies and coatings for textiles. Nitrogen based melamine cyanurate is used in nylon and in polypropylene intumescent formulations in conjunction with ammonium polyphosphate.
Stabilizers for polymers are used singly or in combinations to prevent the oxidation, chain fission, uncontrolled recombinations and cross-linking reactions that are caused by photo-oxidation of polymers. Polymers become weathered by the direct or indirect impact of heat and ultraviolet light. Milestab hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS) are extremely effective in polyolefins and polyurethane.
MPI Bright optical brighteners (OB) are fluorescent whitening agents, designed to brighten colours or mask yellowing in plastics, lacquers, paints, inks, photo-processing solutions and fibres. They function by absorbing invisible ultraviolet radiation and re-emitting it as visible light in the blue range of the spectrum. Optical brighteners are particularly effective in masking the yellowish cast sometimes observed in plastics and fibres after high temperature processing operations. They are also used in substrates containing pigments or dyes to make the colours appear more brilliant.
Stabilizers for polymers are used singly or in combinations to prevent the oxidation, chain fission, uncontrolled recombinations and cross-linking reactions that are caused by photo-oxidation of polymers. Polymers become weathered by the direct or indirect impact of heat and ultraviolet light. Milestab UV absorbers dissipate the absorbed light energy from UV rays as heat by reversible intramolecular proton transfer. This reduces the absorption of UV rays by the polymer matrix and hence reduces the rate of weathering.
MileRes bismaleimides are a class of compounds with two maleimide groups connected by nitrogen atoms via a linker, and are used as crosslinking reagents in polymer chemistry. Bismaleimide-based polymers are used for high temperature applications up to 250°C.
Organic peroxides find numerous applications. They serve as accelerators, activators, cross-linking agents, curing and vulcanization agents, hardeners, polymerisation initiators, and promoters. Drying oils, found in many paints and varnishes, function via the formation of hydro peroxides.
MPI is an independent chemical company from Dutch origin and with a global presence, dating back to the early 70's.
By incorporating several production facilities, we are able to supply a wide range of additives. And through our headquarters in the Netherlands, a dozen agents across the continents and several warehouses, we focus especially on the European plastics and coatings industries.
We are thereby fully committed to become and remain a reliable long-term business partner, by continuing to offer competitive prices combined with the best possible service.
