Arkema Inc. has introduced cost-effective tin stabilizers for rigid PVC pipe.
The Philadelphia firm added two improved grades to its Thermolite tin stabilizer line. Thermolite 130 and 135 permit the use of a single stabilizer for pipe processes, offering the potential to lower overall tin content while maintaining quality, according to Arkema.
The new products can replace other stabilizers without altering process conditions. They provide high performance and consistent stabilization. Switching to a single stabilizer can produce savings by lowering inventory costs and reducing blending errors. Both additives have provisional approval for potable water applications.
