Antimony trioxide and Antimony Oxide


Antimony trioxide as flame retardant

Antimony trioxide is used mainly in fire-retardant formulations for plastics (PVC resin, Vinyl resin and other resins compatible to DOP), rubbers, textiles, paper and paints. It is also used as an additive in glass and ceramic products and as a catalyst in the chemical industry.

Halogens - bromine compounds, fluoric compounds, chlorine compound - are needed in combination with Sb203 to achieve the effect as a flame ratardant additive.

Moreover, antimony white is applied to avoid yellow coloring of car headlights.

Import and Export in wholesale trade: Antimony trioxide as raw chemical material

As chemical raw material antimony trioxide is traded pulvered or granulated. ANTRACO Chemie-Handelsgesellschaft mbH (Germany) is a quality supplier of this substance. Due to excellent contacts to producers and manufacturers, Antraco is a prime address for buying departments in the chemical industry.

Antimontrioxid as catalyst

The catalyst application in PET production, film production as well as the textile industry are examples of the application range of antimony(III)oxide. It is also used for staple fiber and industrial twines (filaments).

Sb203, Antimony(III)oxide, Antimony white

Antimony trioxide is also known as antimony oxide, antimonious oxide, antimony sesquioxide, antimony white, antimony [III] oxide, Sb2O3, Sb2O5, Antimony sesquioxide.
Alternatively, the application of antimony acetate is possible.
