Plastics

Lightweight mineral fillers and materials are introduced to the manufacturing of plastics to improve density, provide protective coating, enable buoyancy, etc.

There are many parameters in the production process - the equipment, the polymer and the method of expansion - which makes for a pretty complicated matrix.

Some of which work well together and some that do not. It is this diversity of process that makes our role so very much of interest.

Not simply for the supply of lightweight mineral fillers and materials but more in exploring how our products can be manipulated to better work in customer systems. For easier and more efficient handling and for improvement in output performance.
