Filolen® are masterbatches
that contain mineral fillers such as calcium carbonate, talc and barium
sulphate and are used to modify the mechanical properties of polymers and to
improve the processing in various plastics applications.
All Filolen®GCC masterbatches are strictly controlled for filler content, dispersion
quality by filter pressure rise
test and blown film production, volatile content and pellet quality, in order to
ensure trouble-free processing and top performance.
General Usage Recommendations
Dosing blends of Filolen® and polymers by pneumatic conveying equipment is not recommended due to the
big difference in density.
A higher colorant addition may be required to
obtain bright colours at high Filolen addition levels.
Filolen GCC masterbatches contain micronized coated
calcium carbonate finely dispersed in various polymers. Some products also
contain rutile titanium dioxide.
makes Filolen® GCC special:
- Exceptional low
abrasivity for longer life of screws, barrels, cutting
- Excellent whiteness and high purity due to the extremely low Fe2O3 content, 0.01% max, in the calcium carbonate used.
- Superb dispersion quality for trouble free processing and best mechanical properties in thin film and tape applications. Dispersion quality is controlled by filter pressure rise test or blown film production.
The available range of Filolen® GCC masterbatches is
presented in our Technical Information Notes covering different processes where
end product, processing and environmental benefits are explained in detail.
Filolen® Talc masterbatches contain mineral
talc finely dispersed
in various polymers.
Filolen® Talc are used mainly to improve the
mechanical properties of PP in injection molded articles, to improve the cell
formation in applications of expandable polystyrene (XPS) and expandable
polyethylene (XPE) and as antiblock agent in film applications.
Filolen® Barium Sulphate
Filolen® Barium Sulphate masterbatches contain micronized mineral or synthetic barium sulphate of high purity,
finely dispersed in various polymers.
Filolen® Barium Sulphate are used mainly
for the nucleation of semi crystalline polymers, for the improvement of light
reflectance, as a sound absorbing material in pipes and fittings and to
increase the weight of plastic articles.
