Additive Carrier Systems

Turning Liquids into Solids for the Plastics Industry


The global demand of plastics is increasing year over year and in almost every corner of the world plastics are part of the human environment. Daily life without plastics appears to be impossible. However, most neat plastic materials exhibit quite poor properties and require additives to improve their processing and performance.


ACCUREL® Systems offer carrier technologies and solutions, especially for liquid and low melting additives, which are otherwise difficult to handle. Proprietary technology allows the incorporation of large additive amounts into a thermoplastic polymer matrix, either direct or via porous polymer carriers.

ACCUREL® products support a broad range of plastic applications - such as films, foams, fibres, injection moulding, nonwovens and wire & cable - and are widely used by polymer producers, additive suppliers, compounders, masterbatchers and converters. 

ACCUREL® Systems are ISO 9001 and 14001 certified and have been serving the plastics industry for more than 25 years. 

OUR WORLD OF MASTERBATCHES

ACCUREL® Direct is an economically attractive solution for polymer producers, compounders, and converters to deliver additives into plastics.

The low polymer content improves the compatibility of ACCUREL® Direct high concentrates with the base resin and the predispersed additives support the homogenous distribution in the final plastics application.

Although ACCUREL® Direct granules contain up to 80% by weight of liquid, low melting or pastelike additives, they are mechanically stable, free-flowing, and easy to dose. Conventional masterbatching techniques usually achieve far lower additive contents.  

 

ACCUREL® MP and ACCUREL® XP granules are porous carriers for liquid or low melting additives which are thermally sensitive, reactive, polar, hydrophilic, or hydrophobic.

ACCUREL® MP and ACCUREL® XP differ in porous structure and porosity level as well as in loading time and loading capacity for the additive. They are made from different polymers: PP, PE, EVA, EMA, PS, PET, PA6, PA12, PC, PLA, ABS, SAN, PMMA, PVOH.

The porous structures in the polymer carriers act like tiny sponges which absorb the additives through capillary forces and keep them inside. Depending on the nature of the additive slightly elevated temperatures, vacuum, and/or wetting agents may accelerate the additive loading process without exposing the additive to an additional heat history. 

Based on ACCUREL® MP/XP porous carriers, ACCUREL® Systems also offers additive preparations. They are dry, free-flowing, and allow both convenient handling and dosing. Here, additive loadings up to 70% by weight are possible.
