3p offers mineral-filled compounds, based on PE/PP/PS, that contain Caco3, talk, Baso2 and others. Depending on the application, they can impart properties to film and molded articles that include increased stiffness or a paper-like appearance. Other advantages may include increased efficiencies through more rapid cooling of the film bubble and reduced energy consumption during processing. These masterbatches typically contain 30-80% mineral content in a polymer carrier. 3p filler masterbatches offer a convenient way of incorporating Caco3 and other minerals in thermoplastics, without contamination by dust. They have perfect dispersion and optimized flow properties, ensuring easy processing. Filler masterbatches are used in injection, Blow-moulding, Film, Sheet and Tapes applications

 

They offer the following advantages:

flashInjection & blow-moulding
Lower raw materials cost, as they are usually more economic than polymer resins
Increased output due to faster mould cooling.
Reduction of colour masterbatch requirement
Higher resistance to heat deflection, higher rigidity and stiffness
Improved dimensional stability, weldability and printability
Addition rate of FILLER masterbatches in injection & blow-moulding applications can be up to 50 %, however, most usual levels are between 5-30%
flashFilm, sheet, sacks, bags
Lower raw materials cost, as they are usually more economic than polymer resins
Reduction of colour masterbatch requirement
Higher stiffness, paper-like effect
Improved weldability and printability
Improved anti-blocking properties
Better bubble stability
Addition rate of FILLER masterbatches in film applications is 2-8%
flashPE & PP tapes
Anti-fibrillation – also known as anti-splitting
Lower raw materials cost, as they are usually more economic than polymer resins
Reduction of colour masterbatch requirement
Higher stiffness
Improved weldability and printability
Improved anti-blocking properties
Improved weaving ability
Easier processing
Usual addition rate of FILLER masterbatches in tapes is 3-8%
