Produkte für PVC-Anwendungen
The BAEROPAN product line comprises stabilizer/lubricant compounds – also known as one-packs – that contain all of the additives required for processing, and combine the stabilizing properties of BAEROSTAB with the lubricating effect of BAEROLUB products. In some cases, BAEROPAN also determines the characteristics and quality of the finished product (functional additives), e.g. weather resistance, surface quality, impact resistance and color fastness. In most cases, there is no need to use additional additives.
The BAEROSTAB line of additives ensures the thermal stability of PVC. It can also support other specific requirements, such as UV resistance.
The BAEROLUB line of lubricants reduces friction, and therefore supports the processing of PVC and other plastics. Lubricants are used to improve melt flow behavior. They comprise substances with varying degrees of polarity, and can contain functional groups including various alcohols, acids, esters and amides.

The BAEROPOL product line of customer-specific, polymer-free one-pack additive systems contains basic stabilizers for polymers, plus other additives required for unique customer applications. These low-dust/dust-free products are easy to dispense, require fewer processing steps and reduce complexity for the customer – minimizing the risk of production errors, and unlocking potential cost savings. BAEROPOL additive blends are used by polymer manufacturers and plastics processing specialists.
The BAEROPHOB product line comprises hydrophobic agents which are based on oleochemicals, and are employed in the construction industry. Baerlocher offers a range of powder-based reactive and non-reactive hydrophobic agents for specific applications, including chipboards, special types of concrete, and mortar for plastering/rendering and masonry. BAEROPHOB products have a number of important benefits. For example, they are highly cost-efficient, easy to handle and process, highly sustainable, and feature good dispersibility – for robust, reliable water repellency.
The BAEROCID line of stearic acid products is derived from sustainable sources such as animal fats and vegetable oils. BAEROCID products are available in both liquid and solid forms, and are used to manufacture candles, surfactants, fatty alcohols and stearates, to name just a few examples. These products are also employed in the rubber, lubricants and textiles industries. Baerlocher has extensive hands-on experience in the processing of stearic acid – specifically, in the manufacture of metallic stearates (metal soaps) and additives for the plastics industry.
The BAEROCIN product line comprises a range of glycerin products manufactured by Baerlocher. The key benefits of these products include high purity, colorlessness and a neutral odor. BAEROCIN is only available in liquid form, and can be deployed as a heat-transfer fluid, a coolant or an anti-fogging agent, among other applications.
