Calcium carbonate masterbatch made by recycled plastic – have you ever heard about this material? In any businesses, manufacturers are always eager to earn the high and stable profit. Plastic and calcium carbonate masterbatch manufacturing industry is no exception. Instead of choosing the primary plastics as input material, manufacturers can decide to buy recycled plastic to create various products since this way help producers saving a large amount of production costs. But if this is the first time you step in this field, you may not really reassured because you do not know every details in the production process of this material. In this article, we will help you gaining more knowledge in this field.
Will the recycled calcium carbonate masterbatch is qualified as regular masterbatch?
Recycled resins used in the production of calcium carbonate masterbatch are derived from no longer used primary plastic products. So if you choose them for recycling, the quality of plastic beads is only reduced slightly compared to the original material. However, the disruption in several quality aspects does not really affect the total quality of new made products.
Why should manufacturers choose recycled calcium carbonate masterbatch in their production?
On the other hand, using recycled plastic for making calcium carbonate mastebatch provide manufactures with a lot financial advantages as recycled plastic is always cheaper than primary resins. In addition, recycling not only helps producers approach the cheap material resources for production but also contributes to environmental protection. As you know, plastic when being released into the environment, whether it is soil or water environment, can not be degraded for a long time, so we need to recycle it to make the environment better.
Process of producing recycled plastic for calcium carbonate masterbatch
Understanding the recycling of primary plastic is the useful solution for both manufacturers and environmental activists but consumers (plastic-based products producers) are still worried since there are many rumors that this recycled material is “very dirty” and not suitable to produce high-quality products. To rectify these rumors, you need to know the process of producing recycled plastic used in calcium carbonate masterbatch:
- Recycled plastic particles/granules are purchased and then they will be sorted and removed impurities.
- Next, the plastic granules are dried and put into melting process until all of them melted into a unique mixture.
- These mixtures are then added additives, fillers (usually CaCO3 powders) and colors to become calcium carbonate masterbatch.
- Next, these mixtures are poured into the extruder. Under activities of the machine, the masterbatch is pressed into long chain, cooled and cut into small pellets.
- Finally, recycled masterbatch were packaged and waiting for people to choose to blow into suitable products.
EuP is proud in providing high-quality calcium carbonate masterrbatch for any customer
As you can see, recycled plastic masterbatch are created in a very strict and methodical process so it is not as “dirty” and unqualified as rumors. Therefore, you can safely use this type of material in manufacturing products used in daily life as well as in other industries. In case you are looking for qualified recycled plastic masterbatch, try to find the facility that has the correct granulation process and produce quality masterbatch like EuP. We produce high-quality calcium carbonate masterbatch for almost all technically relevant plastics, including mineral-reinforced grades. At EuP, modifying the masterbatch pellets into different grain sizes depending on customer’s requirement is possible. We are also able to coloring of your plastics by adding color masterbatch (color concentrates for plastics). We try to find every hue of this universe no matter what color settings you work with – we strike the right tone.
