PETER GREVEN – Your partner for plastic additives

The plastic industry provides ample opportunity for the use of our products and therefore constitutes for us, one of the most important sectors.

Metallic soaps are among the most significant stabilisers, which distinguish themselves not only with their excellent stabilising properties but they are also good lubricants. In addition, the metallic soaps are used as acid catchers and mould release agents.

Ester lubricants are - as well as metallic soaps - indispensable additives in the plastic industry. Their effect and characteristics are based on the different characteristics of the functional groups and non-polar amounts, as well as their ratio.

Additionally, our oleochemical additives improve the pourability and workability of the components and plastic mixtures.

Our most important brands for plastic industry:

LIGASTAR®, LIGASTAB® and LIGALUB®

Our comprehensive product portfolio applies to the following plastics:

  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
  • Polypropylene (PP)
  • Polyethylene (PE)
  • Sheet / bulk moulding compound (SMC / BMC)
  • Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS)
  • Polycarbonate (PC)
  • Polyamide (PA)
  • Polystyrene (PS), expanded polystyrene (EPS)
  • Medical plastics
