  • Purging Agents
    Phoenix purging concentrates and purging compounds lessen downtime by allowing quicker changeovers and reduce the wear and tear on equipment. Traditional purging materials can only scratch the surface leaving hidden color, char and debris behind. With Phoenix's' purging concentrates and purging compounds, the approach was to add a unique penetrating additive to help lift the debris hidden within the minute cracks and crevices of your system. Phoenix Plastics is an ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturer of unique purging concentrates and purging compounds developed for cleaning low/high temperatures commodity & engineered grade resins.

  • Chemical Foaming Agents
    Chemical Foaming Agents or CFA's are additives that release gas when decomposed imparting a cellular structure to the material. The CFA gas remains dissolved in the melt while the melt is under pressure and when the melt is injected into the mold, the pressure is reduced allowing the gas to expand the polymer. Phoenix's CFA's are used to reduce weight and prevent the formation of sink marks, while maintaining good surface aesthetics. Phoenix manufactures endothermic, exothermic & binary CFA's for olefins, styrene's, & engineered grade resins as well as CFA's manufactured specifically for structural foam molding, extrusion, & film.

  • Stabilizers
    Stabilizers and UV Concentrates reduce the propagation of highly reactive free radicals created in resins by mechanical shear, chemical attack, residence time, and temperature. Stabilizers and UV additives play a key role in black spec reduction and maintaining polymer processability and physical integrity. Phoenix Plastics stabilizer packages are modified to specific processes and materials with their inherent and unique difficulties.

  • Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor
    Unique, non-nitrate VCI concentrate engineered for injection molding, blown, cast, stretch, & shrink film applications and are available in VCI yellow, VCI blue, & VCI natural color. The VCI vapors settle on the surface of the metal and reduce the electrochemical activity of the surface and forming a barrier against moisture and the surrounding air.
