Solplus™ Hyperdispersants are a line of polymeric dispersants for masterbatches, thermoplastics and thermosets that provide efficient dispersion to meet the needs of the plastics industry.
For plastic dispersants to be effective in specific applications, they must be compatible with the media in which the solid is being dispersed and have an affinity with the surface of the material. These are the main criteria used in the product selection. Solplus plastic additive dispersants are specifically developed for a range of plastics applications as shown in this chart.
For Plasticizer and Polyol Systems
Solplus plastic additives improve the dispersion of organic and inorganic pigments, fillers, flame retardants, stabilizers and blowing agents. Manufacturers achieve high solid loadings/increased pigment concentration, low viscosities, improved color strength and better dispersion of color in the finished polymer.
For Thermoplastic Compound/Masterbatch and Cable Applications
Solplus plastic dispersants enable advanced mechanical properties such as tensile strength and elongation to break and cost savings. They are effective on a wide range of pigments, fillers and flame retardants for many polymer types.
For Thermoset/Composite Applications
Solplus plastic additives offer major process advantages in thermoset/composites applications including the combination of anti-settling benefits, dispersing and wetting properties in a single additive. They improve the dispersion of organic and inorganic pigments in gel coats and fillers, flame retardants and reinforcement fibers in thermoset systems.
Solplus plastic additives make plastics easy, offering the industry:
• High loading
• Strong, bright colors
• Minimal product defects
• Low filter blockage
• High throughput
• An ideal choice for use in pigment and filler treatment, masterbatches, liquid colors, pigment dispersion and resin coupling.
