Blow moulding

Calcium Carbonate Masterbatch (CaCO3) for blow moulding

Save by using it in the production of bottles, drums, containers and other items

The PLASPER® Calcium Carbonate Masterbatch is a mineral modifier with a high, very fine, treated CaCO3 content that has an excellent dispersion in the final product, indicated for direct addition in the processing of polyolefins. The PLASPER® mineral modifier is designed to increase productivity, reduce energy costs and improve the properties of blow moulding.

ADVANTAGES

Economic saving

  • Reduction in energy consumption
  • Reduction in raw material costs of 3% to 20%, depending on the percentage of PLASPER® used
  • Reduction of cycle time due to the higher thermal conductivity of the CaCO3
  • Helps reduce thickness
  • The PLASPER® concentrates produce a whitish appearance, which saves the use of TiO2

Improvements

  • The CaCO3 increases the thermal conductivity of the molten mixture, which results in more rapid heating and cooling of the polymer (Fig. 1)
  • Considerably increases rigidity
  • Better dimensional stability, increase in production and easier transformation
  • Improves the processability/transformation and the extrusion and injection performance
  • Improves dispersion
  • Improves the impression of the final product
  • Promotes the barrier effect

Environmentally friendly

  • Carbon footprint smaller than the virgin polymer
  • Products are more environmentally friendly and sustainable with the use of PLASPER® CaCO3

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE

  • The application of the PLASPER® series does not require any change to the production process
  • The most suitable dosing systems are:
    • Gravimetric dosing unit
    • Volumetric dosing unit (the best way is to use the feeder at the neck, between the hopper and the extruder)
    • Centralised mixing stations also give good results
  • Dosing: between 3% and 50%
