Thermal stabilizers
Plastics and lubricants undergo oxidation when exposed to elevated temperatures in the presence of atmospheric oxygen. Thermal oxidation can adversely affect the physical properties of plastics, fibers, and lubricants as well as produce discoloration. In an automobile, lubricants and under the hood plastic parts are subject to the greatest thermal stress. Interior plastic components, textiles, and carpeting can also experience high temperatures, for example when the vehicle is parked in the sun on a hot day. Thermal oxidation can also occur in plastics and fibers during melt processing operations such as extrusion and injection molding.


The Ciba antioxidants significantly extend the long-term thermal stability of many types of plastics, fibers, lubricants, and coatings. They are also effective in stabilizing polymers (often in combination with processing stabilizers) at the high temperatures encountered in melt processing....etc.
