filler masterbatch and its applications

Classifications of Filler Masterbatch

Traditionally, most fillers were considered as a child category of additives because they affect nothing or even decrease the strength of the polymer. Their main usage purpose is reducing the cost of input materials by replacing expensive polymers. Besides, they probably fasten molding cycles. Other plastic properties could be changed, depending on which type of […]

NEW LIGHT DIFFUSION COMPOUNDS FOR LED APPLICATIONS

Rapid advances in LED lighting are due to the promise of increased energy efficiency, increased bulb life and the lack of heavy metals such as mercury. Although the benefits are many, a standard LED light produces a unidirectional light that many consumers find harsh and lacking in warmth. To reduce the glare and diffuse the […]

Common types of halogen-free flame additives

Traditionally, halogen-based compounds are used as an economical route for good flame retardancy properties while having mechanical properties meeting application requirements. However, since the 90’s regulatory restrictions have increased regarding their use as they produce health and environment hazardous toxic dioxins and furans during their combustion. Black and toxic fumes are released adding another risk […]

A Primer on Colorful Additives

The melt coloring of plastics is one of the most functional value added features a resin producer, compounder, or parts fabricator can impart to their products. It not only provides desired appearance properties that help sell the product, but it can also enhance several other properties, such as stability toward UV light. In addition, melt […]

Filler Surface Treatment

There are 2 main solutions for filler’s surface treatment. Their functions and purposes are different. One is related to chemical bonding and one is not.  Chemical bonding treatments are used when manufacturers want to enhance the adhesion between fillers and polymers,  to improve mechanical properties but impact strength. In contrast, non-bonding treatments enhance the ease […]

Design of Plastic Products (part 2): The holistic design approach

The part becomes more rigid as it cools in the mold. Even an essentially rigid material might be successfully ejected from the mold if this function is performed while the part is still soft.  However, the part must also be rigid enough to withstand the force of ejection without enduring permanent distortion. The point at […]
