OnCap™ Anti-Rat, Anti-Rodent & Anti-Termite Technology
Protect your wire and cable or other products from rats, rodents or termites with these non-hazardous, non-toxic and environmentally safe masterbatches. The active substance used is non-hydroscopic, does not migrate within the polymer, and resists leaching under typical conditions. PolyOne can also develop formulations that incorporate other properties to enhance processing or mechanical properties. OnCap™ Anti-Rat, Anti-Rodent & Anti-Termite Technology is not available in North America.
OnCap Aversive Anti-Rat and OnCap Anti-Rodent & Anti-Termite Technologies are classified as a PolyOne Sustainable Solutions. Non-toxic 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 combine safety and ease of use when processed 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 animal or insect environments, OnCap Anti-Termite, OnCap Anti-Rodent and OnCap Aversive Anti-Rat additive concentrates provide a cost-effective alternative to other methods.
These solutions avert rats, rodents, birds or insects when used in cable jacketing or protective corrugated pipe. Laboratory tests with aggressive species of rats, rodents and termites have proven these concentrates’ effectiveness in protecting end products. Furthermore, OnCap™ Aversive Masterbatch for Wire & Cable Protection is compliant with the EU Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR)
