As the most widely used group of thermoplastics, polyolefins as semi-crystalline plastics offer a wide range of application possibilities. They differ for the various areas of application both in their requirements and in their properties such as light transmission, toughness, durability and resistance to ageing.
The filler ALMISIL® or CALCIPLAST® 2 HS, which is tailored to these requirements, optimally supports these properties without impairing the processing of the materials in terms of their colour, surface or even grip and is suitable for translucent and even transparent applications. Products with different particle sizes are available, and with their use a high surface smoothness is achieved even with high dosage.
ALMISIL® C 2
Properties / Description
Sodium-rich tectosilicate with prismatic crystal lattice / high whiteness / improves abrasion resistance in coating and weather-resistant marking paints / enables very smooth surfaces in plastics with very good translucency up to transparency and increases colour strength and brilliance of white and coloured pigments
especially fine-grained / low moisture / improved rheology + high flow span / no side reactions due to surface water / residual moisture content: 0.1 *% / (*measured during production) / highly suitable for reactive polymer systems
