Sidistar® polymer additives
Elkem Silicon Products’ Sidistar ® polymer additives are a group of products used in the polymer industry for improving processing and flame retardancy characteristics. Sidistar® is a unique amorphous spherical semi-nano sized silicon dioxide, which is dispersible down to primary particles in a polymer matrix. Due to these physical properties, it displays both improved processing as well as synergistic effects in flame retardant compounds.
