Pipes

Calcium Carbonate Masterbatch (CaCO3) for irrigation pipes

Save by using it in the production of irrigation pipes

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 is designed for increasing productivity, reducing energy costs and improving the properties of the pipes.

ADVANTAGES

Economic saving

  • Reduction in energy consumption
  • Save between 3% and 20% in raw material costs, 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 CaCO3 increases the thermal conductivity of the minerals, 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
  • Considerably increases the speed of the line for faster process times
  • Improves dispersion
  • Improves the impression of the final product?

Improves properties

  • Increases rigidity
  • Improves compressive strength
  • Increases resistance to impact (dart drop)
  • The CaCO3 mineral MB can be added at high doses
  • 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%
