Sheets & Profiles
We often meet requirements for reinforcement material for sheet and profile production. In one particular case, we worked on a project of sheet which should be reinforced and we couldn’t reduce flexibility due to further processing. These sheets were from PP copo with various thicknesses (from 3 mm) and which were then processed by thermoforming.
We provided to the customer a complex solution when we combined two different types of Granic® materials. One was based on talc, which increased the Flexural modulus by 80 % and the second was based on calcium carbonate with a special Vistamaxx ™ carrier, which provided the required flexibility.
After accomplishing the customer’s requirements we even increased production capacity from 300 kg/h to 345 kg/h, thanks to the higher thermal conductivity of mineral masterbatch.
