Rigid insulating sheets and foams
A large variety of grades for rigid sheet extrusion and foaming for sound dampening is available by Lotte Starex® ABS with specific extrusion grades.
Mesgo has a focus on flame retardant (halogen and halogen-free), conductive (carbon black) and mineral filled compounds or concentrated masterbatches on various thermoplastics: Altair® PE, Avior® PP, Izar® PS, ABS.
Mesgo also has a core-competence in flame retardant masterbatches with its SwingAdd® Halogen, Low-Halogen and Halogen-Free.
Mesgo SwingAdd® additive masterbatches help to reduce the temperature degradation, improve the lifetime on UV and oxidation exposure, improve polymer processability, scratch resistance. SwingAdd® are available as single-function additives or as a combined proprieties or colors (combi-batches).
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.
For rigid or flexible sheets inherently flame retardant PVC compounds from TPV Compound are the first choice.
Virgin or recycled PP/mineral filled are available with Meplen® or EcoMeplen® by Mepol. Mepol also developed a range of recycled EcoMepron® PS and EcoMeplac® ABS.
Tailor-made formulations and colors – even for small batches – are also available with ColorTech Teclene® PP, Tecstir® PS and Teclan® ABS.
Flexibilization and impact increase in rigid insulation materials (PS, ABS, PVC) is obtained by direct addition of Arkema Evatane® EVA or Lotryl® EMA, or Sipol Sipolprene® thermoplastic block copolyesters. Ambra Impact PO may be used for recycled styrenics.
Basic polyolefins and polyolefin virgin resins and compounds with special offers, off-specs or slow movings from major world producers are available at Speedy Polymers.
Other solutions for rigid sheets and foam extrusion can be found under the Section: “EXTRUSION, FOAMING, THERMOFORMING, SHOES (NON-PACKAGING)” of Ambra Applications & Solutions.
