Fragrances and Deodorants for Plastics & Polymers
Horizon fragrances hide unpleasant odors in plastics and rubber compounds at low concentrations. At slightly higher use levels, a pleasant & positive aroma is imparted. Typical addition rates are 0.1% to 0.5%, which is a great value-benefit to cover unpleasant aromas.
We offer a variety of specially formulated deodorants for neutralizing odors including: plasticizers, PVC, blowing agents, preservatives, recycled rubber & plastics, natural latex, and many more.
Fragrances & deodorants are available in three physical forms: liquid, powder, and bead. More detailed information is below. Depending upon the end-use application and fragrance; industrial, cosmetic, and food-contact grades are available.
Liquid Fragrances & Deodorants are concentrated perfume oils incorporated directly into plastic, rubber & vinyl mixtures. Typical applications include: toys, dolls, novelties, and solid air fresheners. Deodorization of film products include: shower curtains & liners, tablecloths, waterbeds & mattress covers, baby pants, liners, etc. Other products requiring “off odor” neutralization include: sporting goods, luggage, & auto interiors.
Liquid fragrances & deodorants are the most economical physical form containing 100% active ingredients.
Polypowders are dry, free-flowing powders typically containing 56% concentrated fragrance & deodorant. The carrier is an inorganic synthetic, amorphous silicon dioxide (CAS #112926-00-8), and food grade (FEMA#1115). It absorbs fragrance oil and aids dispersion in the polymer. Polypowders are useful when liquid oils are not compatible, or difficult to add in plastics processing.
All Polypowders are MTO with a 25lb MOQ. Polypowders may opacify the final product.
Polybeads usually contain 20% concentrated fragrance by weight. They are the preferred product when liquids & inorganic powders cause mixing and dispersing problems. Polybeads may also be used “as is” in air fresheners, potpourris, and environmental fragrancing. Polybeads are dry, EVA beads of uniform size and a softening point of about 88C-110C. Polybeads are not recommended for use with styrene, K-resin, or polycarbonate systems.
All Polybeads are MTO with a 25lb MOQ. Cosmetic & Food-grade versions are available.
