Plastic masterbatch and factors constitute its current position in plastic industryby Tran Hoa Marketing
Plastic masterbatch (also called filler masterbatch or taical) are the most common fillers in plastic manufacturing. Their importance of it has not diminished over the years.T they have always accompanied the development of technologies of manufacturing and processing plastic products. So what properties that make plastic masterbatch so ubiquitous?
What factors build up plastic masterbatch’s current position?
The essential component of plastic masterbatch is CaCO3 - which is very popular and widely used in many manufacturing industries. Not only in the plastic industry, but CaCO3 is also a common material used in other industries and manufacturing around the world. 4 reasons calcium carbonate (CaCO3) creates the "position" of plastic fillers:
Firstly, this source of raw materials is abundant and spread in many regions around the world. The abundance of reserves allows unrestricted CaCO3 exploitation, resulting in low cost and stable supply over a long period of time.
Secondly, calcium carbonate has moderate hardness, not too soft but still not too hard, which makes it easy to process, can be finely ground into flour or into larger sizes.
Thirdly, CaCO3 is also effective in reducing the melting pressure of plastic when it is formed. In addition, as used in manufacturing, CaCO3 is a relatively good stabilizer, which will help improve the bubbles in the production of plastic masterbatch. This enables the products to achieve a smooth and nicer surface.
Finally, CaCO3 is chemically compatible with many other substances, so manufacturers can combine this variety with many different types of resins and polymers. In summary, thanks to CaCO3, plastic masterbatch bring a lot of economic value for manufacturers in terms of quantity, production capacity and product quality.
What are the benefits of plastic masterbatch for plastics industry?
When used as a plastic additive, in addition to replacing a part of raw materials so that manufacturers can reduce production costs to the maximum, plastic masterbatch also helps plastic products increase hardness, durability, adhesion as well as impact resistance. In addition, the aesthetics of the finished product increases significantly because CaCO3 in plastic fillers helps to improve and adjust the gloss and opacity of the surface. At the same time, adding CaCO3 to plastic products also increases their surface printing ability.
