OUR PRODUCTS  TOUCH THE LIVES OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE EVERY DAY

Hence, we are constantly innovating with new products and developing existing ones to provide our customers with not just the latest and the best but also cost-effective solutions of consistently high quality. We are also dedicated to improving our manufacturing processes to protect the environment. As a result, SUN ACE Australia is the first PVC stabiliser manufacturer in Australia to be awarded the prestigious ISO 14001 certification for establishing an environmental management system.

SUN ACE IS NOW AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED NAME FOR HIGH-QUALITY SPECIALITY ADDITIVES

SUN ACE is recognised as a leading producer of PVC stabilisers and metallic soaps. We produce for many customers in the petrochemical, food, personal care, pharmaceutical, plastics and rubber, cement and coating industries around the world. We realise that this would not be possible without the commitment and hard work of all our employees. They remain our most valuable asset and are responsible for the successes and continuing growth of the company.

PVC STABILISERS

These stabilisers give PVC sufficient heat stability during processing and provide the finished article with the required durability in the course of its service life. Our products are used extensively in building and construction as well as in furnishing and telecommunication industries. They are also commonly used for semi-rigid and plasticised PVC applications and in the manufacture of transparent packaging films and sheets, floorings, coated fabrics and automotive interiors.

METALLIC SOAPS

Metallic Soaps, (mainly stearates) can function as acid scavengers, lubricants, mould release agents, extenders, water repellent agents and other applications. This is due to their unique chemical structure and  characteristics of having a metal and organic fatty acid component. They are, therefore, widely used as additives in many industries including plastics, rubber, coatings, cement, cosmetics, food and pharmaceutical.


At SUN ACE Australia, we produce a wide range of metallic stearates to service different market sectors. This range of stearates is produced from vegetable based fatty acids which allows us to declare that our products are not only BSE free but also free of animal substances.

WIRE AND CABLE
 

Applications

Because of its excellent inherent dielectric properties, PVC has proved to be a particularly effective polymer for use in electric wire primary insulation and sheathing. Sun Ace produces a wide range of products for this application. Traditionally Lead has proved to be a very successful stabiliser, but today the development of "heavy metal free" stabilisers has been intensified.

 

Some of our products

Ca-Zn based stabilisers for low, medium and high working temperatures:
Low moisture pick-up and optimum heat ageing.

CALENDERED SHEET AND FILM

SUN ACE AUSTRALIA
Applications

In this field there are many different stabiliser systems depending upon the final application; for rigid film, Tin stabilisers and Ca-Zn systems - which allow the production of food contact, medical, as well as technical film - are mainly used. In plasticised applications, stabilisers based on blends of metal soaps exhibiting a synergistic effect (Ba-Zn, Ca-Zn etc.) with co-stabilisers have been developed taking into consideration the end application requirements.

Some of our products
  • Solid Calcium Zinc stabilisers for rigid calendered film requiring food contact approval

  • Solid Polymeric and Liquid Octyl tin and Methyl/Butyl tin Mercaptides, stabilisers offering low emission of volatile contents

  • Low Phenol and Phenol Free Liquid Barium Zinc Stabilisers

PACKAGING

Applications

Sun Ace has a complete range of additives for this application. Due to the market demands of crystal clarity in packaging materials and high processing temperatures, tins are generally used as stabilisers due to their excellent thermal stability. Generally bottles are produced with either Octyl tin or Methyl Tin Mercaptide Stabiliser due to the excellent heat stability that they impart. Where there is no food contact, Butyl Tin Mercaptides may be used. Where low odour and taint are requirements such as in mineral water bottles, Calcium Zinc stabilisers are preferred.
