Processing aids, Flame retardants, Conductivity, Colors and Polymer modification
Mesgo SwingAdd® additive masterbatches help to reduce the temperature degradation, improve the lifetime on UV and oxidation exposure, improve polymer processability, scratch resistance, decrease the water content. SwingAdd® are available as single-function additive or as a combined proprieties or colors (combi-batches).
Mesgo also has a core-competence in flame retardants: SwingAdd® Halogen, Low-Halogen and Halogen-Free flame retardant masterbatches help to reach the most severe flammability regulation.
Jazzwhite® and Tangoblack® masterbatches are produced in large volumes at Mesgo Grigno plant, and they show very high concentration and excellent dispersion of the pigments on polyolefins, styrenics, PA and other engineering polymers at very reasonable costs. Color masterbatches are produced at Mesgo Iride Colors, with very high flexibility also for small batches.
Arkema functional polyolefins are also widely employed to modify and homogenize all basic polymers which are used for food and non-food packaging, including PE, PP, PS, PET, PA, ABS, virgin, mineral filled, compounded and reprocessed. This is usually done by pre-compounding the blends, but due to the special chemistry of Arkema functional polyolefins, in some cases these functional polyolefins can be added directly during extrusion as pre-blends or masterbatches.
Lotader® maleic grades are used to modify PA, while Lotader® AX grades for polyesters, Lotryl® T and Evatane® for polyolefins.
