Main Antioxidants (AOs) & Blends
Songwon is one of the very few companies offering all three Main AOs in a variety of physical forms to facilitate efficient handling of materials. Main AOs protect polymers against oxidation during processing (mainly phosphites) and long term heat aging throughout the life of the finished article (mainly phenolics).
Backward integration & security of supply
Songwon is backward integrated in the key intermediates Alkyl Phenols & Alkyl Cresols. We are one of the world’s leading suppliers of AOs & have the 2nd largest global capacity
Our Main AO products & blends are:
- SONGNOX® 1010
- SONGNOX® 1076
- SONGNOX® 1680
- SONGNOX® 11B
- SONGNOX® 21B
- SONGNOX® 417B
Songwon’s Niche AOs are complementary to the Main AO product range. They provide a broad range of options for optimizing the performance of polymers in a variety of applications.
Continuously expanding our portfolio
Our strong engineering & technology know how, as well as our manufacturing capabilities in AO chemistry enable us to meet market demands e.g. for high performance phosphites or AOs with low extractability.
