The odor control specialty material.
Instead of more traditional methods of releasing fragrances into the environment, polymers such as recycled plastic, resin, and rubber play an essential role in everyday life. However, polymers can develop nasty odors during the manufacturing process as well as during end-use, so much so, that they become unpleasant to handle or work with.
IONICGUARD® is a state-of-the-art odor control system designed to enhance processed plastic products. It is a synergistic combination of fragrance and odor neutralization ingredients that deliver scientifically proven performance.
How does it work?
While competitive technology attempts to shroud malodor molecules without bonding, IONICGUARD® utilizes active odor neutralization, with proprietary ingredients that ionically and covalently bond to malodor molecules.
These bonds are strong enough to convert the lighter, volatile malodor molecules into larger, heavier, non-volatile molecules that cannot be detected by the human sense of smell.
- Primarily designed as an additive for POLYESSENCE®.
- Unique active odor neutralization technology.
- Effectively neutralizes 95% of odors, including, but not limited to ammonia, Diethyl Amine, Indole, Skatole, ISO Valeric Acid, Methyl Mercaptan, Hydrogen Sulfide, Mildew, Food Odor, Pet Odor & Urine, Smoke, and Body Odor.
- Can be custom formulated for several market applications and OEM processing methods.
