Toughen up your plastic
The packaging industry is the largest consumer of plastics today. But manufacturers need to find ways to mitigate their carbon footprint and control costs by reducing packaging thickness and weight.
Talcs increase heat resistance while improving stiffness, impact strength and printability of thermoformed polypropylene packaging. They increase dimensional stability, reduce thermal expansion, shrinkage, warpage and anisotropy, and improve barrier properties. There are other benefits, too. Talcs can increase thermal conductivity – speeding up cooling and shortening production cycles – while improving the cuttability and printability of the finished product.
