key additives for polymerization processes

Mercaptans (alone or blended) are commonly used as additives in the manufacturing process of several thermoplastics, elastomers or acrylic polymers.


The use of mercaptans allows the control of the chain length during the synthesis leading to the expected and targeted mechanical and processing properties of the polymer.
