With the development of a sensor and deactivator that works with all three systems, CPMA believes it has overcome the biggest obstacle to greatly increased usage of effective anti-shrink technology.
Expert additive treatments are used in situations requiring H2S scavengers, cetane improvers, pour point depressants, lubricity improvers, conductivity improvers, corrosion inhibitors, oxidation stabilizers and metal deactivators.
In addition, diffusion of activator causes to congregate deactivators which cannot participate in reaction with dormant chains.
Hostanox OSP-1 metal deactivator and antioxidant has stronger metal deactivating properties than other metal deactivators.
The solution integrates ADT's extended line of Sensormatic Ultra*Max deactivators with NCR's latest generation, small-footprint bioptic scanner/scale, the NCR RealScan 74 OFX.
For instance, he says, current deactivators can be retrofit to handle all three types of EAS tags at a cost of about $10 a unit.
As for cost, Ptak contends that when you factor in the cost of deactivators at each scanner, deactivation systems are about as expensive as pass-around systems.
Ultraviolet radiation absorbers and/or metal deactivators are also sometimes included to protect the polymer against specific degraders.
Two integrated Sensormatic Ultra-Max anti-theft tag deactivators extend the unit's deactivation ranges, reducing false product identifications and scan failures, and improving cashier productivity and throughput.
Fuel additives in JP8 and JP-8 + 100 include antioxidants and metal deactivators, and for some aircraft fuel systems an icing inhibitor and static dissipater additive.
New accoustomagnetic products were also demonstrated, as were the latest offerings in tag deactivators.
Additives include antioxidants, UV inhibitors, hindered amine light stabilizers, acid acceptors, antistats, lubricants, nucleators, metal deactivators, antiblocking agents, optical brighteners and inorganic fillers.
