Shivam Polychem offers Filler masterbatches are concentrates of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) or Talc in a polymer base. They offer a convenient way of incorporating CaCO3 and Talc in thermoplastics without contamination by dust. They have perfect dispersion and optimized flow properties ensuring easy processing. The CaCO3 and talc grades used in our filler masterbatches are of excellent quality allowing much higher loading compared to conventional filler masterbatches.
Symbol of the plastic processing industry, masterbatches are composed of the high concentration of pigments and balancers of characteristics expected in part. However, believing that just these properties can ensure the future of your mastering industry is a risky act. In search of new niches, companies of the branch believe that the future of the masterbatch is much more than simple tonalizantes and homogenizadores.
From aspects ranging from silk paper to marble, large companies like Cromex and Promaster believe in masterbatch as an alternative to common materials. Faced with market options, plastics have advantages in terms of sustainability, price and production processes, as well as guaranteeing visual and tactile characteristics that are very similar to the real ones.
As explained in this content, developing differentiated colors to catch the attention of end buyers is a demand of the mysteries. An exotic color in the packaging may be the differential for a product to be carried or not by the consumer. With this, neon or fluorescent pigments are indicated for parts where the aesthetic appeal is important, as in toys, household, and disposable items.
With a more sophisticated formulation, masterbatches with anti-static properties are widely used in consumer electronics. This special feature allows parts to be wrapped in the machine without any interference.
In addition to being resistant to the sun's rays, guaranteeing greater time of use even outdoors, and this type of plastic also has the characteristic of not degrading in the presence of sulfur, chemical element quite present in livestock and agriculture and with great outputs for this sector.
There is a wide range of plastic equipment that must be careful with the contamination of bacteria, especially when we take into account the risks of cross-contamination. Kitchen utensils, clinical equipment, hospital and pet line are just a few examples. What do you think about offering this functionality more to its consumers? It is no doubt good functionality of masterbatch.
Among main benefits of calcium carbonate concentrates are cost savings, productivity gains, better products quality and environmental advantages.
Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) filler masterbatch or filler master batch is a concentrated mixture of calcium carbonate and other additives which is processed through a heat process into a carrier polymer resin such as PP , LD , LLDPE, or other which is then cooled and cut into granules (pellets) making CaCO3 masterbatch a solid additive for plastics. Opaque Filler /Milky Filler Masterbatches are Calcium Carbonate based Filler Masterbatches for Raffia Tapes (woven sacks), lamination, Moulding, Blown film.
Usage of Calcium Carbonate Masterbatch
The main use of filler masterbatches lies in tapes, which is to provide anti-fibrillation (also known as anti-splitting) properties. There are other advantages as
Calcium carbonate masterbatch alone is normally not used for coloring plastics and, thus, is different from white masterbatches and color masterbatches. However when used together with white TiO2 based masterbatch it not only increases whiteness due to its natural color but also facilitates white pigment dispersion in the polymer matrix contributing to higher opacity.
Masterbatches are raw plastic compounds that include a high concentration of coloring pigment, or an additive or additives. These are known as color masterbatches and
