Three new polymer modifi ers were launched by Chicago-based HallStar Co. (formerly known as CPH Holding and before that, C.P. Hall). ?LPPM (Low Polarity Polymer Modifi er) RX-13804 is a low-volatility elastomeric additive that reportedly has excellent compatibility with polyolefi ns, TPEs, and other low-polarity polymers. It is said to provide excellent reduction of Tg, enhancing low-temperature properties, as well as soft feel. ?Paraplex LS is a customdesigned, proprietary light-stabilizing system for use in PVC and other thermoplastics. It absorbs uv radiation with a peak at 303 nm. It is available as a liquid, PVC powder dryblend, heat/light-stabilizer blend, and light-stabilizing plasticizer. Concentrations as low as 0.5 phr are said to extend the weatherability of PVC fi lm. ?Hallbond APS is a patented adhesion-promotion system for bonding rubber to a variety of substrates, including textiles and metals. It is a one-component system available as powder or liquid that can be mixed into the rubber or applied to the substrate. Tel: (877) 427-4255 . www.hallstar.com
