Plastics surfaces have lower hardness and are easily scratched/ scuffed resulting into loss of gloss, shine and loosing aesthetic appeal. There is increasing need for more durable and re-usable plastics and to preserve the look and feel of that plastic, particularly in the automotive industry. Anti-scratch additives reduce the visibility of scratches and scuffs on the surface, resulting in an improved look and an increased lifetime of the part and making the plastic part more durable.
They migrate to the surface by controlled migration through the polymer and work by reducing friction at the surface.
