Anti-Rat & Anti-Termite Additives

Cesa™ Aversive Technology

Extremely Low-Concern for Long-Term Protection

Protect your wire and cable or other products from rats, or termites with these low-concern masterbatches. The active substance used is non-hydroscopic, does not migrate within the polymer, and resists leaching under typical conditions. Avient can also develop formulations that incorporate other properties to enhance processing or mechanical properties. Cesa™ Aversive Technology is not available in North America.

Cesa Aversive Technologies are classified as an Avient Sustainable Solution. Low-concern solutions like this are increasingly required in many countries, where additives such as lindane, pyrethroids, copper naphthenate and other substances are either banned or progressively replaced.

Along with desirable dispersion properties, these additives are easily used in extrusion applications. As a substitute for metallic armor, glass roving or special engineering polymers such as PA12, which are often adopted to protect cables from hostile animals, anti-termite and anti-rat additive concentrates provide a cost-effective alternative to other methods.
