As a key product in Fillplas production, CaCO3 filler masterbatch is used in many plastic fields and for many applications with advantages.
1. CaCO3 Filler Masterbatch for Blown Film Application
CaCO3 filler masterbatch is used in the general-purpose film (shopping bags, garbage bags, roll bags…), food film, agricultural film (mulch film, greenhouse film).
This material brings many advantages for the end products of blown film application such as productivity, cost-saving, and physical property. For the advantage of productivity, calcium carbonate filler masterbatch increases volumetric output (as a result of thermal conductivity & volumetric expansion to temperature) and gives the ability to down gauge due to high film physical property. When using CaCO3 filler masterbatch, producers can reduce material cost and use less energy to run the machine due to higher CaCO3 specific heat. It also helps products to improve physical properties by increasing stiffness as well as to get less off-spec product and acting as an anti-block agent.
2. CaCO3 Filler Masterbatch for Raffia and Yarn Application
In raffia and yarn production, this filler can be found in PP woven sack & FIBC; PP raffia with low denier and medium running speed.
There are many benefits of raffia products with CaCO3 filler masterbatch. CaCO3 provides faster heat transfer and the needed energy to heat up or cool down the mixture lower. It reduces anti fibrillation/anti split agent. It also increases tape stiffness and opacity. This material helps cost benefits due to the difference in price between filler & resins.
3. CaCO3 Filler Masterbatch for Non-Woven Fabric Application
In this application, we also can see CaCO3 filler masterbatch widely used in shopping bags, automobile, hygiene & medical, wiper cloth, agriculture, protective clothes, construction – filtration equipment.
4. CaCO3 Filler Masterbatch for Blow Molding Application
CaCO3 filler masterbatch is used in blow molding application to produce bottles or containers by offering substantial benefits. It improves ESCR (environmental stress crack resistance) and dimensional stability, shaping. It helps reduce cost production due to CaCO3 price difference from resin, manufacturing cycle time due to the higher thermal conductivity of CaCO3 and energy for machine usage. This material is possible to increase flexural and compression module and give better printability.
5. CaCO3 Filler Masterbatch for Injection Molding Application
Housewares, furniture, tanks, toys,… are kinds of products of injection molding application using this material.
There are some main advantages of calcium carbonate filler masterbatch for injection molding: higher stiffness; improving impact resistance; less shrinkage; better isotropic properties; improving the dimensional stability of products and forming and shaping ability; increasing thermal deformation temperature under load; reducing machining cycle time due to thermal conductivity and specific heat.
6. CaCO3 Filler Masterbatch for Extrusion Application
For PE pipes, HDPE pipes in extrusion application, the use of calcium carbonate filler masterbatch in the polyolefin pipes production technology will give pipes higher hardness, improve processing ability, reducing cooling time and reducing costs. In accessories manufacturing, it helps reducing cooling time and increases profit margins.
