Our products enable performance through superior color and premium ultraviolet (UV) protection.
We offer specialty carbons and black masterbatches that are used in a variety of film and sheet applications including consumer and food packaging, lamination film, bags, agricultural films and geosynthetics. Whether you need covering power, premium UV protection, or both, we have developed a specialty carbon for your needs. In addition, many of our products have high levels of physical cleanliness to maintain the aesthetic quality of your final product.
Packaging and lamination applications comprise a significant portion of all plastic film and sheet end-uses. In these end-uses, surface smoothness, opacity, and dispersibility performance are key performance parameters. We offer specialty carbons that meet both U.S. FDA and European Union food contact standards.Download Brochure
Mulch films help farmers improve their productivity by suppressing weed growth, maintaining humidity, and protecting roots from climatic extremes. Silage films and silage stretch wraps are used to produce and store fodder for livestock. Ensuring that these films perform over their useful life, our specialty carbons offer UV protection to prevent polymer degradation and subsequent loss in mechanical properties.Download Brochure
Geomembranes are flexible or semi-rigid sheets that create barriers to liquid and gas leakages. They are used as landfill liners and covers, pond liners, tunnel liners and for containment or storage of water or waste. UV protection is important for geomembranes, as they can be exposed to the elements for long periods of time. In addition, maintaining the mechanical integrity of the film is critical; therefore, it is crucial to use specialty carbons that offer high levels of dispersibility to help reduce film imperfections that may lead to failure.Download Brochure
