Pipes

Calcium Carbonate Masterbatch (CaCO3) for the manufacture of corrugated pipes

Save by using it in the production of corrugated tube for the protection of cables and sanitation

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 corrugated tube.

ADVANTAGES

Economic saving

  • Reduction in energy consumption
  • Save between 3% and 20% in raw material costs from , depending on the percentage of PLASPER® used
  • Reduction of polymer consumption
  • Helps to reduce thickness
  • The PLASPER® concentrates produce a whitish appearance, which saves the use of TiO2

Improvements in productivity

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

Improves properties

  • Increases rigidity
  • Improves compressive strength
  • Increases impact resistance
  • Using the PLASPER® CaCOmineral MB improves the mechanical properties

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 15%
