Ameriplas, Inc, Architects of Compounded Additive SolutionsAmeriplas, Inc has decades of manufacturing experience in high loaded specialty compounds for polymer additives and development. The company has technical experience in areas such as antimicrobials, flame retardants, ethylene scavenging technology, UV and thermal stabilizers, vapor corrosive inhibitors, molecular modifiers, and various other forms of process aids. Ameriplas specializes in various plastic processing products, such as flame retardants, stabilizers, antimicrobials, vapor corrosion inhibitors, and specialty additives.
Flame retardants help to decrease the effects of fire. These retardants can be added to or applied to various types of flammable materials, such as plastics to slow down the process of fires igniting. Commonly used on consumer and industrial goods from insulation to molding, flame retardants from Ameriplas, Inc consists of the FR-41B, FR-41NH, and FR-PCNH, which are halogen-free or non-halogenated masterbatch flame retardants in LLDPE carriers or polycarbonate carriers.View Details
Stabilizers, in the form of a UV absorber or antioxidant are used to prevent products from premature degradation, whether it is through weather-related changes or the effects of aging. Increasingly being used in masterbatches, stabilizers from Ameriplas include UV stabilizers to protect against heat and ultraviolet light and antioxidant stabilizers, which eliminate oxidation reactions during weathering, while decreasing degradation. Hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS) scavenge and deactivate radicals. Stabilizers help maintain a polymer's appearance, performance, and durability.View Details
Antimicrobials are agents that slow down or stop the growth of microorganisms. They are active against various types of microorganisms, such as antifungal fungi, antibacterial bacteria, antiparasitics, and antiviral viruses. Great for molding applications, antimicrobials are a functional option to increase product safety.View Details
Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCI) are also known as Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCIs) that prevent rust and corrosion on various types of products. With items that contain metal, the vapor corrosion inhibitors hinder corrosion by stopping air and moisture from contacting the metal's surface. As a result, vapor corrosion inhibitors are often used in the U.S. military to prevent corrosion on metal components. This inhibitor also works well on more intricate or impractical surfaces, making it a suitable option for automotive and steel packaging.View Details
Purging compounds are a cleansing compound for thermoplastics, such as molding machines. The compounds can be used to remove color and material. They are a great option when cost and efficient production is a concern in the facility. Use purging compounds to maintain and clean during extrusion and injection processes for products such as injection molding machines (including ones at higher temperature).View Details
