Antioxidant MD 1024Â is a sterically hindered phenolic antioxidant, used in polyethylene wires and cable resins, filled polyolefins, SRB, X-SBR, NBR fuel hoses in contact with copper & in styrene homo and co-polymer.
Features & Benefits:
- Antioxidant MD 1024Â is a hindered phenolic antioxidant/metal deactivator used in reducing or preventing the harmful effect of copper or other metals upon various polymers. Widely used in telecommunication wire and cable, provides unmatched extraction resistance and processing stabilization. Can be used alone or with other antioxidants to provide stabilization of polymer in contact with copper, both during processing and long-term service.
- For any application in contact with copper, the concentration levels range typically between 0.1% and 0.2%.Â Antioxidant MD 1024Â is highly effective to prevent the harmful effects of copper conductors in polymers used as primary wire and cable insulation, including polypropylene, high- and low-density polyethylene, and some thermoplastic elastomers. It is also recommended for use other polymer systems where contact with metals may affect polymer properties and stability, including EPDM, peroxide- and radiation-crosslinked polyethylene, polybutene, styrenic polymers, unsaturated elastomers, PVC, PVB and others.
Handling & Safety:Â Antioxidant MD 1024Â exhibit a very low order of oral toxicity and does not present any abnormal problems in its handling or general use. For more detailed information please refer to the SDS.
Storage:Â Antioxidant MD 1024Â has to be stored in tightly sealed original container in a cool and well ventilated area, away from direct sunlight.
