Polymers, often referred to as plastics, are very important in human life.
Due to their valuable properties, polymers are used in engineering, textile and food packaging industries, agriculture and medicine, automotive and shipbuilding.
In everyday life, polymers are textiles and leather products, tableware, toys, electronics, furniture, various coatings, adhesives and varnishes, jewelry and other articles.
Lightweight and durable, polymers successfully replace wood, glass and metal.
The polymer industry is not possible without additives. The successful use of plastics in many areas is mainly related to the addition of modifiers to primary (and recycled) resins.
Special additives can change physical and mechanical properties such as strength, elasticity, resistance to weathering and aggressive environments.Modifiers make production processes easier: simplify moulding, give the product the desired shape, color and texture. The additives are of great importance for the environment, thanks to which the used plastic products decompose faster without releasing dangerous toxins.
Solid Calcium,organic systems (COS) supplied in a wide variety of physical forms;
Tin based stabilisers;
Liquid Mixed Metal soap stabilisers;
Co-stabilisers and anti-oxidants;
Blended One-pack systems to include additives such as lubricants and blowing agents
Anti-blocking additives are recommended to improve the adhesion of polymeric films made of LDPE, LLDPE and PP to each other or in the roll.
Additive is invisible in the film, by giving the surface micro roughness, it make easier to open bags, improve printing ink adherence, helps improve heat seal strength
Film with anti-corrosion additive protects metal products from corrosion.
Increases scratch resistance of the plastic surface
The accumulation of moisture on the surface of the greenhouse film reduces light transmission, which can reduce crop. Falling drops of condensate can cause rotting and increase the risk of plant disease.
In the case of packaging films, drops of moisture spoil the aesthetic appearance of the packaging, food products may be damaged and fungus can occur. Anti-fogging additives prevent the formation of condensation droplets and help avoid these negative cases.
Antioxidants are recommended to prevent thermal oxidation of the polymer during processing and to inhibit chemical degradation during storage and use of the final product.
These additives are also used to protect plastic products from corrosive environments.
It roughens the surface of polyethylene films and thus reduces possible slipping.
Antistatic additives help to eliminate the static effects inherent in all plastics. These additives facilitate the manufacturing process and reduce dust build-up on plastic products.
Black masterbatches are suitable for a wide range of applications, from pipes, cables and packaging films to agricultural films, which must be particularly weather resistant and meet international standards.
A range of black concentrates can also be used for casting electronic parts when deep blacks and a glossy finish are required.
Product weight can be reduced by using blowing additives. Typical applications are packaging, technical parts, insulation products.
Cleaning additives and compounds are used to clean, maintain and protect equipment from raw material residues. It also used to transition from one color to another when fast result is needed.
Development and production of colour masterbatches according RAL, PANTONE color systems and according to the provided standard. Manufacture of various combined products such as colour and additive or additives (eg colour, flame retardant and UV protection).
Combined products are useful when you want to use one product with multiple functions. Such complexes are tailored to the needs of the user and balance and facilitate the production process. Advantages: easier dosing, fast dispersion, economy and more convenient storage compared to individual products.
In some areas, such as construction, transportation, electronics, home appliances, etc., the materials have strict fire safety requirements. The nature of most plastics is such, that they cannot be made completely fire resistant. However, it is possible to influence their flammability. For this, flame retardants are used, which reduce the likelihood of fire and slow the spread of fire.
High-density polyethylene it is a lightweight plastic, strong and resistant to various chemicals. Main applications: plastic bottles, food containers, corrosion-resistant pipes, flexible packaging, various technical details.
Infrared barriers in the film prevent greenhouses and tunnels from cooling overnight and protect them from excessive sunlight during the day.
The main functions of laseradditive masterbatch are marking and decoration.
Laser technology offers many advantages compared to other decoration methods. Laser marking is resistant to abrasion, chemicals and weather conditions and can be used even on soft, rough, stepped or curved surfaces. This technology is also very flexible, making it ideal for small batches and fast changing layouts. Applications: lottery codes on beverage lids, barcodes, food and cosmetic packaging with logos, product information, shelf life or decorative designs, animal ear tags, security seals, keyboards, cables and tubes, electronic components, medical devices and laboratory equipment.
Low density polyethylene is very flexible material especially suitable for the production of various films, shopping bags, pipes, cable covers, containers, surface coating (lamination).
Linear low density polyethylene it is a strong and elastic plastic with good chemical resistance. It is often used in blends with low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE), in the production of thin films, multilayer packaging, various containers.
Gives a matte surface to final article
Moisture-absorbing additives are used to dry or dehydrate all types of recycled polyethylene and polypropylene raw materials in order to improve the process stability and mechanical properties of the final product.
Prevents the cast product from sticking to the mold, making it easier to release
The additive makes polypropylene products more transparent, improves mechanical properties, and allow to make production cycle shorter
Used to facilitate removal or reduction of oxygen content in packaging to ensure product safety and prolong shelf life.
Plasticizers are used in the production of plastisols.
Polypropylene is a rigid plastic resistant to aggressive chemicals with good mechanical and dielectric properties. Polypropylenes are divided into homopolymers (PPH) and copolymers (PPC). The copolymers are divided into high-transparency Random and impact-resistant Block. Typical applications: tapes, tubes, sheets, profiles, packaging films, toys, containers, household products, car parts and components, bottles and cosmetic packaging.
PPAs are fluorinated polymers for improving of the extrusion quality, better homogenization of pigments and fillers and output of thermoplastic polymers, saves energy and equipment. Typical applications: foaming and extrusion of films, pipes, cables, tapes.
The innovative PROTEC additive has been developed to ensure process and quality control.
It can be used to protect products from plagiarism, and the originality of the product is confirmed or rejected by the sensor.
Polivinilchlorido derva plačiai naudojama grindų ir sienų dangos gamyboje, automobilių pramonėje, tentų, sandariklių, namų apyvokos daiktų gamyboje, elektrotechnikoje.
Slip additives form a layer of lubricant on the surface of the product, reducing the coefficient of friction. Adds shine and ease removal of molded parts from molds
Unique effects for plastics: metal look, stone and marble, wooden look, pearlescent effect, polychromatic and holographic color effects.
Lubricant to simplify opening behavior of bottle caps and closures
Polymers are sensitive to UV rays. Exposure to light and atmosphere will significantly shorten the life of the plastic. By using a light stabilizer, a UV resistant product can be obtained that will last longer and retain its original color and mechanical properties.
UV absorbers absorb energy from solar radiation and convert it into a heat.
White masterbatches of various concentrations and shades for packaging food products, household goods, agricultural films, industrial products.
Excellent temperature stability and outstanding pigment dispersion allow dosing of concentrated products from 0.5%, depending on the final product.
