Any one of a number of special chemicals added to a product to bring about special effects. Examples are: driers, anti-setting agents, and coloring.
In many plastic products, the polymer is only one constituent. In order to arrive at a set of properties appropriate to the product, the polymer is almost always combined with other ingredients, or additives, which are mixed in during processing and fabrication. Among these additives are impact modifiers, colorants, reinforcements, plasticisers and stabilisers. See also plastics and conversion.
A number of chemical and other products incorporated into processed foods, including flavourings, dyes, nitrates and other agents. Used to alter the colour, flavour, increase the nutritional value and ease the processing, packaging and storage of foods.
Substances which are added to cosmetic products, often in relatively small amounts, to create or improve desirable properties or suppress (or minimize) undesirable properties.
Natural and man-made substances added to a food for an intended purpose (such as preservatives and colors) or unintentionally (such as pesticides and lubricants).
Substances added to ink that promote abrasion resistance, block resistance, pinholing resistance, adhesion, slip and film flexibility. Alternative Term: Modifiers
Additives are ingredients of paper such as clay fillers, sizing, dyes and other chemicals.
Chemical or stubstances added to foods to prevent spoilage or deterioration of quality or to improve flavor, texture or appearance.
Synthetic or natural chemicals used in food production to colour, preserve or enhance flavour. Food additives approved by the EU have an E number. Adhesive a substance used to stick materials together; examples include PVA glue, cow gum, low temperature hot melt glue Advertisement information about a product or service used to attract potential consumers; advertising takes place in newspapers and magazines, on hoardings, on radio and television and on the Internet
Added in very small quantities, additives optimize the properties, manufacture, and processing of coatings and plastics.
In the manufacturing process of plastics, polymer is just one constituent. Their are other chemicals like impact modifiers, colorants, reinforcements, plasticisers and stabilizers etc that give specific properties to the plastics. These are called additives.
Certain chemicals have been developed over the years to alter the properties of concrete and these are added during the mixing process. In freezing weather, a chemical can be added to lower the freeze point of the wet mixture. In hot weather and long distance hauling, crushed ice is sometimes added to the mixture to extend time before the concrete begins to set. Fly ash costs less than cement and can be substituted up to about 10 percent. Concrete is sometimes colored with dyes. Forms are often sprayed with chemicals to prevent concrete from bonding to them. Chemicals are available to increase the workability of concrete or to advance the setting.
Chemicals added to fuel in very small quantities to improve and maintain fuel quality. Detergents and corrosion inhibitors are examples of gasoline additives.
Chemicals added to fuel in very small quantities to improve and maintain fuel quality and/or to lower emissions.
Chemicals that are added to paint or stain formulations to impart various desirable characteristics, such as mildew resistance, low spatter and little or no foaming.
Chemicals added to food, frequently, though not always, considered threats to human health
Materials combined with VIBRATHANE, and curative to modify the properties of the roll, such plasticizers, fillers, and stabilizers.
Chemical substances added to a finish in relatively small amounts to impart or improve desirable properties. Examples are UV screeners, flow agents, defoamers, fish eye eliminators, etc.
these are materials other than aggregates, cements, lime or plaster used in the production of plaster and render mixes, eg.: accelerators, colouring agents, plasticizers, hardeners, water proofing compounds, etc.
Substances added before, after or during processing to modify a plasticâ€(tm)s behaviour or properties.
The FDA now interprets the term "additive" to refer to the added substance as a whole and not to each of its individual constituents.
Ingredients mixed into resin to improve properties.
Any ingredients, other than pulp, added to paper during the manufacturing process. Paper additives may include clay fillers, dies, organic materials, sizing or other chemicals.
Natural or synthetic substances added to foods in small amounts to preserve, flavour, enhance colour, improve texture etc.
Compounds which are added to petrol and oil to improve their quality and performance.
Ingredients of paper other than pulp. Additives include clay fillers, dyes, sizing, and other chemicals.
Additives are special ingredients added to paint to improve performance such as ease of application, drying speed, mildew resistance and water repellency.
To be able to process PVC into plastic products, it has to be blended with other chemicals. These products are known as additives.
Chemicals which are added to coatings in small amounts to alter the physical or chemical properties of the finish. For example, certain additives can reduce the drying time of alkyd (oil-based) finishes.
Any natural or synthetic material, other than the basic raw ingredients, used in the production of a food item to enhance the final product. Any substance that may affect the characteristics of any food, including those used in the production, processing, treatment, packaging, transportation or storage of food.
Substances other than a foodstuff present in food as a result of production, processing, storage or packaging. Some examples of additives are: preservatives, coloring, thickeners such as gums, excipients, and binders.
Any substance added in small quantities to paint, usually to improve certain paint properties, for an example, mildew resistance.
An ingredient or combination of ingredients added to the basic feed mix or parts there of to fulfill a specific need.Ã‚Â Usually used in micro-quantities and requires careful handling and mixing.
Substances added to feedstuffs for preservation or flavour.
Ingredients not needed for saponification usually added to the soap at trace.
Additives are materials added to plastics with the intent on improving specific properties of the plastic. Examples include flame retardants, thermal stabilizers, and UV stabilizers.
the term used for a large number of specialist chemicals which are added to resins/compounds to impart specific properties, for example, flame retardancy, and UV resistance
Any substance added in small quantities to another substance, usually to improve properties. Examples of additives include plasticizers, fungicides, and dryers.
Substances that are added to foods but are normally not consumed by themselves as foods.
Any material added to molding sand for reasons other than bonding or improvement of bond is considered an additive. Bonds can be of varying types: carbonaceous (sea coal, pitch, fuel oil, graphite, gilsonite); cellulose (wood flour, cereal hulls); fines (silica flour, iron oxide, fly ash); cereals (corn flour, dextrine, sugar); and chemical (boric acid, sulfur, ammonium compounds, diethylene glycol). See Sea Coal.
Any natural or synthetic substance that is added to a food item, thus changing the final product. Additives are used to maximize the efficiency of products during their production, packaging, and transportation. They are also commonly used to prolong a products shelf life
substances added to food to aid processing, preservation, to improve flavour or colour.
chemicals added to a substance to improve or modify its characteristics. Typical examples are food additives such as emulsifiers, preservatives, artificial colours and flavours.
