General Use Information
1,3,5-trimethyl-2,4,6-tris(3,5-di-t-butyl-4-hydroxybenzyl)benzene, commercially known as Irganox 1330 and Ethanox 330, is a sterically hindered phenolic antioxidant that protects organic substrates against thermo-oxidative degradation.
Irganox 1330 / Ethanox 330 is used in polyolefins (e.g., polyethylene, polypropylene, polybutene) for the stabilization of pipes, molded articles, wires and cables, dielectric films and in other polymers such as engineering plastics like linear polyesters, polyamides, and styrene homo- and copolymers. It may also be used in PVC, polyurethanes, elastomers, adhesives, and other organic substrates.
This product has been regulated by the FDA for use in all polymers at a maximum level of 0.5% except for nylon resins where the maximum use level is 1%. The resultant polymers would conceivably contact all food types with no temperature restrictions.
Sales of Irganox 1330 / Ethanox 330 are to industrial users only. The polymer industry has a record of safe use of additives such as Irganox 1330 / Ethanox 330 and worker exposures are considered minimal. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are distributed that present detailed hazard data and provide directions for safe handling. After Irganox 1330 / Ethanox 330 is incorporated in the polymer matrix it is relatively immobile and release-exposure to humans or the environment is considered minimal
