ADINS clay series are additives based on organically modified special silicates for polymers.

ADINS clay series are composed of several grades, particularly developed for the best performance in every polymer system. There are specially designed to be used in thermoplastics or thermoset, providing adequate properties such as flame retardancy, gas barrier or reinforcement.

ADINS clay series improve the cellular structure in extruded polystyrene foam (XPS) reducing the thermal conductivity.

 

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

ADINS clay series are used in several applications for thermoplastics and thermoset polymers and paints and coating.

ADINS clay series act as a synergistic additive in halogen-free systems with different flame retardants (i.e. ATH, MDH, intumescent). ADINS clay enhances the performance of fire retardants which allows to reduce its content, maintaining the flame retardancy behavior, improving processability and mechanical properties. ADINS clay reduces fumes formation and helps the dispersion of flame retardants in the polymer.

Polystyrene masterbatch based on ADINS clay series are used in the formulation of XPS foam to improve the thermal insulation properties of a XPS foam or reduce the thickness required but maintaining the thermal insulation. The ADINS clay series allow to reduce the content of the flame retardants (halogen or halongen-free) used in the foam reducing the environment impact

The dosage of ADINS clay series depends on the number of factors (application, system, other additives and the desired effects) and a typical range of use is 1-5 wt%.

 

ADINS clean is a functional additive based on a silicate doped with photocatalytic species which introduces in the host systems the capacity for removing organic matter from the surface by the action of light.

ADINS clean incorporates an innovative technology, which allows using lower dosages than photocatalytic based products, since ADINS clean is more active than any other photocatalitic particle.

ADINS clean additive provides an effective solution to avoid the agglomeration problems and handling of the catalyst particles (TiO2), increasing their effectiveness by supporting the TiO2 particles on an inorganic substrate.

ADINS clean is used to maintain an unaltered aesthetic aspect over long periods of time in a surface, reducing the costs of maintenance and improving the environmental quality of zones in which it is applied. The photocatalytic additive allows to reduce the concentration of contaminants (NOx or VOCs), which are generated to a great extent by the intensity of traffic in large urban centers. ADINS clean is suitable to be used in cement based materials, ceramics, glazes and coatings to obtain self-cleaning or decontaminant surfaces.

 

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

ADINS clean is suitable to be used for self-cleaning and decontaminant surfaces in the following applications:

  • Paints and Coatings (inorganic and/or organic based paints, varnishes, gel-coats).
  • Cement based materials (Panels, facades, pavements).
  • Ceramic (glazes, ceramic coatings, tiles).

The dosage of ADINS clean depends on the system and the desired performance but a typical range of use could be 1-10%.

The ADINS clean additive is available in powder or liquid form (previously dispersed in a water-base).

ADINS fireproof is used to obtain a ceramificable layer in polymer systems with halogen free (metal hydroxides or intumescent) flame retardant in  fire conditions.

ADINS fireproof is a functional additive based on a natural silicate doped with phosphate-based species which introduces a smart fireproofing in different systems.

ADINS fireproof improves the integrity of the material providing a very stable, consistent and compact char layer.  ADINS fireproof contributes to reduce the heat release and dripping and, as a consequence, the fire propagation. ADINS fireproof is suitable for plastics and resins matrices with high requirements under fire conditions.

  • Paints and Coatings (fireproof gel-coats, fireproof resin-based paints).
  • Tools and Structures (fire resistant structures, system boxes, emergency boxes and tools).
  • Construction (plastic based wall panels, skylights/dormers, resin floors). Insulation (Fireproof foams).

The dosage of ADINS fireproof depends on the application, system, flame retardant additives and the desired effects.
