SONGWON launches new products at K 2022 highlighting its commitment to the industry

Ulsan, South Korea – October 12, 2022 – Songwon Industrial Co., Ltd., the world’s 2nd largest manufacturer of polymer stabilizers and a key global player in the specialty chemicals business highlights its ongoing commitment to the plastics industry with new product launches at K 2022.

SONGWON manufactures a comprehensive range of antioxidants and UV stabilizers in a full range of physical product forms. By continually increasing its production capacity to match the needs of the markets it serves and with its proprietary technology and backward integration, SONGWON is able to continue to deliver the high quality, consistency and security of supply that customers have come to expect.

Over the years, SONGWON’s success has come from listening closely to and transforming customers’ needs into high performance products. SONGWON has continued the long tradition of innovation by recently expanding its portfolio with 2 new products: SONGNOX® 9228 antioxidant and SONGSORB® 1164 UV absorber. SONGNOX® 9228 antioxidant and SONGSORB® 1164 UV absorber are suitable for packaging, agriculture, building & construction as well as home & personal care applications.

Due to its excellent hydrolytic stability, SONGNOX® 9228 antioxidant overcomes the challenges traditional high performance phosphites/phosphonites face by allowing more severe polyolefin processing, especially at high temperatures. In addition to this, it also delivers excellent color protection for Cr-type high density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) and engineering resins.

The latest addition to SONGWON’s range of UV absorbers is a triazine, SONGSORB® 1164 protects plastics against UV light degradation. Compared to conventional benzotriazole UV absorbers, SONGSORB® 1164 makes it possible to achieve a longer service lifetime for polyolefins and engineering plastics exposed to outdoor weathering. The product was developed to be suitable for polyolefins intended for use in contact with food.

“SONGWON continues to support the industry with innovation by delivering in-house produced antioxidants and UV absorbers to the market. Both new products are great additions to our portfolio. SONGNOX® 9228T antioxidant brings valuable features to our solid phosphite product range and SONGSORB® 1164 UV absorber complements our SONGSORB® 1577 triazine range of UV absorbers,” says Franky Cuypers, Leader Global Sales at SONGWON.
