The components that make up Fillplas’s Filler Masterbatch
Filler Masterbatch is the main product of Fillplas. It can be said that masterbatch is a significant step that opened a new era for the plastic industry. Why? It is the best solution manufacturers use to improve the performance of raw plastic. Filler masterbatch particles contribute to solving the problem of headache for manufacturers, which is to reduce production costs. Nowadays, using plastics is very widely in all areas of life and production. Along with the plastic industry, filler masterbatch is also gradually familiar with us. So are you ever curious about the composition of filler masterbatch? Let’s find out through the article today!
Filler Masterbatch compound of high-quality filler, resin polymer and other additive agents by twin-screw machine. It is widely used in the plastic industry for applications such asblown film, blow molding, injection molding, wire drawing, bag molding, slip casting, dyeing, extrusion molding to reduce manufacturing charge and improve the character of final products.
Filler Masterbatch is popular using material in the plastic industry. Filler can be various types of fillers. They are TALC, Na2SO4, BaSO4, fiberglass, etc but most commonly is CaCO3. CaCo3 is a type of filler with a large volume and quite cheap, which makes it very popular. Normally CACO3 uses as Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) type with size from 1 to 3 microns (D50). The shape of stone powder greatly affects the processing and quality of filler masterbatch. In particular, the more angular the shape, the greater the surface area, the more plastic bearing is needed, thus reducing the rate of usable stone powder. The shape of many angles makes the product heterogeneous, difficult to disperse, poorly distributed compared to spherical, cubic stone powder.
CACO3 (GCC) after coated, will mix with resin and additives, through the process of creating granules to create filler masterbatch.
Manufacturers can resize stone powder, change base resin, reduce additives to create different filler lines to meet customers’ requirement in different applications.
Currently, Fillplas has been developing specialized filler lines for Film, spinning, nonwoven, other versatile fillers. In addition, we can supply a large amount, it may help to reduce the volume formulation of end-products but make no affection to the quality (dispersion, purity,…).
