One of the most important trends in the plasics development is represented by a multicomponent plastics systems creation which enables a desired large variation in the quality of polymeric materials. Significant improvements in the properties can be reached via their additivation. Additives can be conveniently classified according to their function into various classes and subdivided according to their more specific function. According to their mode of action in polymer, additives can be divided also into processing additives, flexibilisers,anti-ageing additives,surface properties modifiers,optical properties modifiers,fire retardants and foaming additives.
