Galata offers a well established line of Mark® organotin heat stabilizers, including methyltin, butyltin and octyltin mercaptides, as well as carboxylates which are particularly effective in the stabilization of rigid vinyl compounds. Mark organotin stabilizers are used in a broad range of applications including house siding, window profiles and PVC pipe. Many organotins are approved for use in food contact applications such as blown bottles and blister packs. All of our organotin types, sulfur containing or sulfur free, impart outstanding clarity to rigid PVC compounds. Even vinyl compounds with outdoor weathering requirements, such as house siding, can be effectively stabilized with special Mark® organotin stabilizers. They also provide excellent long-term dynamic stability.
Galata's comprehensive line of Mark® liquid and solid mixed metal heat stabilizers offers a range of options to effectively process both plasticized and non-plasticized PVC for virtually any manufacturing process, from plastisols and slush molding to calendaring, extrusion and more. Our portfolio of solutions is designed to address a spectrum of applications, including, but not limited to, packaging for indirect food contact, medical equipment, toys, roofing, wall covering, flooring, wire and cable, automotive materials and other consumer durables. Regardless of their application, Galata partners with customers to study and evaluate their needs and requirements and determine the best heat stabilizer systems to achieve optimum processing and performance criteria. In addition, Galata is responsive to the trend toward “greener”, more environmentally-friendly materials. We have a history of industry leading responsible practices; from the elimination of lead and cadmium in our product lines to the development of heavy-metal-free OBS (organic based stabilizers) that contain low-to-no phenol and are REACh compliant.
Galata's Markphos® phosphite stabilizers are used in PVC formulations in combination with mixed metal stabilizers. Organic phosphites are useful in protecting properties of many polymers and perform a variety of functions including maintaining transparency and initial color hold, reinforcing the effectiveness of primary antioxidants as thermal & processing stabilizers in polyolefins, elastomers and engineering plastics and upgrading the service life and weatherability of plastics in outdoor use. Phosphite co-stabilizers are also added to polyolefins, polyurethane and other polymer resins.
Galata offers a selection of both solid and liquid Mark® co-stabilizers designed to enhance stabilizer performance, provide cost-in-use savings and address specific processing issues. Although typically used in concert with other stabilizer systems, they can also be used alone to provide heat stability.
