Filler masterbatch is the solution to help businesses in the plastic industry save a lot of money for the final product. The taical filler produced from CaCO3 on a virgin resin base for application in the plastic product manufacturing industry also improves the mechanical and physical properties of the final product.
Filler Masterbatch, also known as Taical granule, is a mixture containing a large amount of fine calcium carbonate (CaCO3) powder mixed with a part of virgin resin and some suitable plastic industry additives. This mixture is heated at high temperature until melted into a liquid. After the ingredients in the mixture are mixed well, the mixture is coagulated until it coagulates and passes through an extruder and finally chopped into small plastic particles. These resins are the filler master batch. CaCO3 masterbatch is widely used as a filler in the manufacture and manufacture of plastic products. They have the function of partially replacing input materials, helping manufacturers save costs and reinforce many product features made at the same time.

Filler masterbatch is the solution to help businesses in the plastic industry save a lot of money for the final product. When used as a plastic additive, in addition to replacing a part of raw materials so that manufacturers can lower production costs to the maximum, filler masterbatch also works to help plastic products increase hardness and durability. , adhesion as well as impact resistance. In addition, the aesthetics of the end product is also significantly increased as the CaCO3 in taical seeds improves and corrects the gloss and opacity of the surface. At the same time, adding CaCO3 to plastic products also increases their surface printability.
+ Reduce PP plastic forming segment
+ Increased hardness
+ Reducing the amount of titanium oxide and reducing the amount of materials.
When using CaCO3 Filler MB in casting products, the hardness and durability will be improved leading to cost savings.
CaCO3 Filler MB is used in blow molding to produce bottles or products used as containers, by selecting the plastic materials suitable for CaCO3 Filler MB, the manufacturer will create product or container with balanced weight and cost reduction.
The essential ingredient of filler masterbatch is CaCO3 – which is very popular and widely used in many manufacturing industries. Not only in the plastic industry, but CaCO3 is also a commonly used raw material in other industries and manufacturing around the world. The four reasons calcium carbonate (CaCO3) makes up the “position” of the filler masterbatch are listed below:
Firstly, calcium carbonate powder makes up the bulk of masterbatch mixes, usually ranging from 60% to a maximum of 90%, and is abundant in many regions around the world. The abundance of reserves allows for unrestricted exploitation of CaCO3, leading to low cost and stable supply
Second, they are most compatible with polyolefin resins (PP, PE resins) but can still be blended with some other common resins such as PS, ABS, PVC, EPS, etc. This filer masterbatch was originally designed for use as a filler that provides an economical and economical solution to the entire plastics industry around the world. However, over time, as the demand for multi-purpose materials is increasing, today they not only act as a mere filler, but are gradually becoming an additive in the special plastics industry. has the function of improving the chemical and physical properties of the substrate.
Third, calcium carbonate is of moderate hardness, not too soft but still not too hard, making it easy to process and process them, which can be finely ground to powder or into larger sizes.
Finally, CaCO3 is also effective in reducing the melting pressure of the resin when forming. In addition, when used in production, CaCO3 is a relatively stable substance that will help improve bubble buoyancy in the production of plastic beads. This helps the product to achieve a smoother and more beautiful flat surface.
Filler masterbatch is made from 2 common types of CaCO3?
In the industrial accessory masterbatch, they are used in 2 forms: coated CaCO3 and uncoated CaCO3. Coated CaCO3 is mainly extracted from a limestone quarry or white marble with a high purity, the only difference is that they are coated with a fatty acid (stearic acid) and a coupling agent (Titanate Coupling Agent) to the surface.
In general, the calculating and chemical properties of these two types of CaCO3 do not have a clear distinction. Most of the physical properties like whiteness, brightness, moisture, critical mass, pH, etc. There is no change. Only with oil absorption, CaCO3 is not superiorly coated (30.08g / 100g compared to CaCO3 coating which is only 18.71g / 100g). Here are the symbols of CaCO3 index:
In addition, their composition, in addition to the presence of stearic acid, also made no difference:
